    Carlos is a brilliant and fast thinking professional, with a refined understanding of human motivation and perspectives. He is one of the best examples the ITA/ESPM MBA in Strategic Management meant: a fine combination of high logic skill with a deep understanding of human behavior.

    I had the opportunity to work with Carlos for many years at SAP. He has very good leadership skills, strong capacity of cultivating strategic relationships inside the organization and also with clients, solid technical background and, most of all, willingness to take risks assuming challenging and innovative projects. Despite these professional characteristics, he is an optmistic and easy-going person, with very good sense of humor, that makes the environment a good place to work.

    While the COO of SAP Latin America, Carlos worked for me as the head of Presales at SAP Brazil. He is a natural born leader. By far he is one of the best leaders across multiple functional areas inside SAP. He is poised for success in whatever he sets his mind to do. I highly recommend Carlos as he will be successful in any endeavor he sets out to accomplish. He is a polished executive who is mindful of what it takes to execute. He leads his team by example, commanding respect through his many experiences. But he accomplishes this in a way that embodies collaboration and loyalty from his team based on his style. Carlos will succeed in whatever he sets out to do ... he's just that kind of guy!

    Carlos' 6-month fellowship was a valuable contribution to our group. From the perspective of the German corporate center, I really appreciated the diversity and real-life Brazil field experiences he brought in to the group. He is a very positive and honest person, fun both to work with and spend time outside work.
