The executive has a background in business administration and a master in business management from Standford University.

Catho is a key jobs site in Brazil. Most of its revenue comes from job-seekers, who pay a monthly subscription to see and apply for job positions. Catho’s revenues have been declining recently due to challenging macro conditions and delays in recovery of candidate paid revenue.
