The company is Grupo RBS which owns a large number of Brazil’s newspapers, radio stations and television stations.

He started out in finance and investing as an analyst for the Delphi Financial Corporation. He later began managing media as CEO of BoxTop Media, an alternative media company based in New York.
Duda Melzer first came to Grupo RBS in 2004 when he became General Director of operations in its domestic market. By 2012 he was promoted to CEO and President when his uncle Nelson Sirotsky stepped down from those positions, and by 2015 he had become Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors.

The Brazilian National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BINDES) recently made debatable concessions. The Brazilian government had announced that it would partner with BINDES to improve basic sanitation services in the country. According to Edison Carlos, Trata Brasil’s president, the services provided by BINDES need to undergo improvement reported on odebrecht.com. Furthermore, the improvement should be focused on management and structuring.
Edison also pointed out that the Brazilian public sector provides about 90 percent of basic sanitation services on executives.findthecompany.com. He also mentioned that state agencies usually serve 70 percent of the recipients of these solutions. Edison believes that Brazilian citizens should be involved in any private initiative focused on improving their welfare.
Felipe Montoro Jens believes that water shortage in Brazil facilitated the growth of private water companies. He believes that the private sector has more resources for infrastructural development and economic empowerment when compared to the public sector.
Role of Concessions in Infrastructural Development
The government should have clear goals when drafting contracts that involve partnerships with private enterprises at http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=113457657&privcapId=45984138&previousCapId=45984138&previousTitle=Energipar%20Capta%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20S.A.. These partnerships are helpful in situations where infrastructural demands are high, and the government lacks sufficient financial resources to address them. Public agencies should always inspect all projects undertaken by private enterprises.
