Ricardo and I joined A&C Group together back in 1995. Ricardo was pioneer in Project Management field in Brazil and a visionary in business. His abilities to plan and manage to get things done are legendary, leading Ricardo and A&C Group to success over the years.
Ricardo and I worked together at some A&C’s Project Management deals at late 1990’s. I could notice his expertise on this matter and his negotiation skills at the first big deal that we closed at this time. Ricardo also is one of the most intelligent and result-oriented person that I know.
As my teacher of Project Management and Operational Research at University, he knew how to make me interest for Project Management field. He was also my director at A&C Consulting where we helped our clients to manage big and important projects and Ricardo was always client result oriented, coaching and teaching his consultants how to improve client performance on management or delivering project results.
I knew Ricardo in 2001. Few years later, I received his invitation to join his company. Since then, he became my reference of professionalism and dedication. More than that, he is my definition of “visionary”; he is always ahead of his time and tendencies! Ricardo is also an example generosity. Everything that I know about project management, mostly, I have learned from him some way through work experience, classes, books and advices.
He uses to help and support his team and counsel them on their carreers.”
