New leader for Latin American region

I’m pleased to share that Orange Business has announced José Renato de Mello Gonçalves as the new Head of the Latin American Region, effective as of July 1.

José Renato, who was the Sales Director for Brazil in recent years, will now oversee all business activities for the company in the Region, including our go-to-market strategy for our multinational customers headquartered or present in Latin America. He will also be responsible for developing strategic relationships with key partners.

With more than 15 years of experience in the IT and Telecommunications fields, José Renato combines technical experience with leadership and strong relationship skills, including business leadership and partner management. As the leader of the Region, he also becomes a member of the Americas Leadership Team and will chair the Latin American Leadership Team.

As part of the strategic changes taking place in the Latin American region, Wagner Bernardes, former Sales Director in Argentina and Chile, becomes Sales Director in Brazil. Leandro Laporta becomes Head of Solution Architects for Latin America, leading the pre-sales team and managing relations with the company's Latin American partners. Last, Oscar Ramirez becomes Sales Manager for the regions of Mexico and Colombia.
