Diego led the implementation of a high-performing managerial structure at Grupo Itaquareia, a family-owned corporate group that is the market leader in Brazil in aggregates for construction. He transformed the group’s management activities into a strategic asset by implementing process automation and mobile technologies. Having previously headed plants producing crushed stone and asphalt, Diego managed multidisciplinary teams at Grupo Itaquareia, achieving reductions in operational costs and increases in revenue. In addition, he engaged the whole corporation in responsible behavior by co-founding the group’s social and environmental institute. This well-received initiative continues to be recognized for the positive impact it has had on the companies’ surrounding communities.
