For one to become a successful leader, there are a lot of factors that come into play. The first being education. Education plays a very big role in shaping leaders. Flavio Maluf has proved himself a worthy leader by getting himself well-educated. He is a graduate of the Sao Paulo based Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado (FAAP). And, because he believed he was meant for greatness, he went ahead to take a business course so that he could effectively manage people when he got to the top of his career. So, he relocated to New York to pursue a master’s degree in Business Management. During this time, he learnt foreign exchange, the management of people, accounting, rural management and foreign trade. This all nurtured him for his future roles at Eucatex.
The second quality of a good leader is career experience and Flavio Maluf also excels in this area. He has served Grand Foods as the president of the company. Other than that, he has over a decade of experience, working for Eucatex, before he was promoted to be president of the company.
Flavio Maluf joined Eucatex in the year 1987. He was placed in the trade area of the company. And in the 9 years that he stayed in this segment, he received a number of promotions. In the year 1996, he had his major career breakthrough. That year two things happened. He was transferred to the industrial division of the company. Secondly, he was invited by his uncle, the then president of the company, to serve in the executive board.
