I have a passion for the future. Specifically, I believe strongly in the Buildings of the Future and how we can make our buildings more efficient, resilient and sustainable—all while decarbonizing in the process. As Senior Vice President, Digital Buildings at Schneider Electric, this is precisely where my responsibility lies: our strategy and business planning for how we get to a future that drastically reduces greenhouse gases. I joined Schneider Electric in 2010 and held several positions in the Industry Automation and Software business in my home country of Brazil. In 2018, I relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., where I joined the Building Automation team as Global Vice President. Before Schneider Electric, I co-founded and am a board member of Lar Plásticos, a market leader in circular economy in Brazil. I have more than two decades worth of expertise in IoT, going back to my work with SoftBrasil and, later, in co-founding Envisia Gerenciamento de Ativos, an IoT asset management company. I studied Applied Mathematics, earned a BA in Electronic Engineering from Maua, a BA in economics from FIA/USP, and an Executive MBA from Insper. I enjoy skiing, playing tennis, and playing the violin (not at the same time). I love to cook, and luckily, I also love to eat good food.
