Recent Report Highlights The Importance Of Water Management

Water is a precious resource, and a recent report written by Felipe Montero Jens highlights the Brazilian government actions that will conserve water in Brazil. The way a village, town, or city is designed will have a big impact on how water waste is managed. Because of this, it is important to analyze the infrastructure in place before figuring out what can be improved. The Brazilian government has partnered with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development in order to go into Brazilian locations and figure out what is working in terms of water management and sanitation, and what is not.


This initiative is only one aspect of a plan that has been put in place in order to improve sanitation in Brazil. The government relies heavily on public, government run sanitation companies in order to meet the citizens sanitation needs. However, this change will bring the private sector into the mix. Trata Brasil, a privately owned sanitation company, will begin working with the public programs in order to provide sanitation measures. Both private and public companies hope to cut down on wasted water resources when it comes to sewage management and drainage infrastructure.


Felipe Montoro Jens reported on the sanitation situation in Brazil. Montoro Gens is a business man with a strong background in administration and leadership roles. He has worked in the financial sector, as well as within public communications, often reporting on events and policies that effect the Brazilian population.


Although Felipe Montoro Jens has spent much of his career within Brazilian based companies, his work has also taken him to other parts of the globe. He holds his masters in International Management from The American Garvin School of International Managment, which is a program based in the US. He has worked and traveled internationally, including the UK and Singapore.

The Achievements and Professional Career of Flavio Maluf

During his professional career trajectory, Flavio Maluf passed several stages and areas before he finally became the president of Eucatex Brasil. Maluf joined the company in 1987. He was born in Brazil in 1961 and is a graduate in mechanical engineering from the Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation (FAAP). He worked and studied in the United States for one year before going back to his homeland.



Maluf started working in the trade section before he moved to the industrial department in 1996. During that same year, his uncle, who was the president of the Family owned business welcomed him to join the executive team of leaders who were responsible for running the business from the top. Due to his superb performance and a show of responsibility in running the operations of the Eucatex Group, the family members agreed to allow him to assume the presidency of Eucatex Group in 1997, a position he holds until today.



His major focus on the company has been about innovation and making heavy investments in launching new products in the segment. Throughout his reign as the company president, Maluf has been nurturing a process of modernization according to its management format. He always considers himself to be a present and consistent executive who is not centralizing in the execution of company projects.



Formed in 1951, Eucatex Group was the first company in Brazil to think of using environmental and acoustic comfort for producing plates and panels by using eucalyptus. Chapas Unit was its first factory built in Salto, Sao Paulo in 1954. The company started with producing acoustic linings before moving into insulation and acoustic sheets. Today, the company has expanded greatly and is a major supplier to renowned furniture manufacturers and large civil construction industries. Under the experienced leadership and guidance of Flavio Maluf, the company opened a plant in Botucatu City and another factory in Salto City in 2010.



Maluf believes in giving back to the society by participating individually in different charitable causes aimed at supporting the community that raised him since childhood. He has collaborated with the Hospital of Maternidade Ídio Carli, which is the former home of Santa Emília Health.
