Born on March 19, 1975, Ricardo d’Avila started his career in 1997 by Legrand, where we experienced many roles as commercial, product development and marketing responsibilities. He moved to Sonepar in 2007 as Marketing Director for South America. He was subsequently appointed Chief Operation Officer for the region, being in that role until 2011. He moved in 2011 to Geneva in Switzerland from São Paulo, Brazil, where in the headquarter of Sonepar, he became an International Market Manager in charge of two product divisions for four years. He later accumulated the International Marketing team of Sonepar International Services becoming International Market Director since 2015 in Geneva. He studied civil engineering at the Unicamp, one of the best Universities of Brazil, having a MBA in Executive Marketing and Organizational Culture. Ricardo has also done an International Leadership Program at Insead and proceeded to work in a fast, upscale international environment, assuring global development on B2B complex markets. Two global-leaders B2B multinational companies as professional background, 10 years as manufacturer and 10 years as distributor/wholesaler, having the two views from the two sides of the table. Passionate about people and cultures, the move to Geneva was a natural fit. In his free time, Ricardo runs a social project which supports Brazilian students from low income families.
