Description

Interim Manager, part Brazil based with a £400M turnover marine and defence business unit

Achievements:

  • Based in Brazil rapidly developed a pragmatic understanding of the Brazilian oil and gas and marine defence market sectors and country profile

  • Identified specific opportunities particularly related to naval marine services privatisation

  • Analysis allowed informed decisions on a complicated and changing market

As Interim Manager for a specialist defence engineering and services contractor, I created a Brazil country profile for naval and offshore sector development substantially based in the country.

I built an understanding of the in-country macro picture, industry specific drivers and relevant opportunities.

I developed a wide network of relevant industry contacts.

I detailed the development of specific options that had a particularly close fit with my client business and produced a detailed road map to develop very specific defence opportunities.

The result of my work was that a country manager was appointed to drive the road map.
