R&M has appointed its long-serving, experienced Senior Manager, Paulo Campos as the new Executive Vice President R&M Americas and Managing Director R&M USA, Inc.
Paulo successfully positioned R&M Iberia in the market from 2010-15 and over the last six years has just as successfully established R&M in Latin America, with its own production plant. During this time, R&M became one of the leading players in Brazil. The facility in Santa Rita do Sapucaí in Minas Gerais has continuously been expanded to meet the demands of new businesses generated in the telecom and data centre sector.
With his new roles and with the merge of the two regions, Paulo Campos’ main focus will be on the continuous further development of R&M’s business and positioning in North and South America. He will be relocating to California with his family.
The new Managing Director for R&M’s South America business is Edison Castro, who is based in São Paulo, Brazil. Edison is an accomplished and proven General Manager with significant experience in driving sales and building teams in the data communication industry. He has held various Senior Management positions in the industry over the last 15 years. Most recently, Edison Castro was the Sales Director Latam for Prysmian’s Multimedia Solutions business. Prior to this, he was in charge of sales for Prysmian’s telecom and high voltage business.
Both North and South America are important strategic growth markets for R&M.
Michel Riva, CEO, R&M, said, “We are very pleased to appoint two proven Senior Managers to continue our growth strategy in this important region.”
Campos said, “R&M is already well-positioned in both markets. I am excited to merge the two regions and to take them to the next level. There are many synergies we can make use of and from which our customers across the two continents can benefit. I am fully committed and motivated to further grow the R&M business in this region. It is a great opportunity for me and my family to move again to a new country and to get to know another new culture.”
Castro said, “It is an honour to be part of R&M, to lead the team and to contribute to the success in this growth region. A new stage in my career has begun. I am completely committed and motivated to be part of R&M’s further growth path in South America by supporting our customers with our high-quality products and solutions.”
