The good news is, Brazil’s economy grew by one percent in the first quarter of 2017. That is the first sign that the largest country in South America is pulling out of the worst recession in more than 90 years. But the bad news is, Brazil could fall back into a recession mode by the end of 2017, according to the chief executive of World Economics, a subsidiary of Information Sciences.
The Brazilian media follow the indices or SMIs from Information Sciences. Information Sciences collect data from a group of salespeople across the retail and manufacturing sectors of the economy. According to some media companies, the information from these SMIs is the most forward-thinking data available. But not all media executives rely on these indices to report economic conditions, especially in the South of Brazil. The southern part of Brazil is its own country in many respects, according to the CEO of the RBS Media Group, Duda Melzer. The citizens in the South of Brazil are descendants of Germans and Italians immigrants, according to Melzer. Melzer family, the Sirotsky family, has German as well as Jewish roots.
Duda Melzer is the third Sirotsky to oversee the ever-growing RBS Media Group. Even though Porto Alegre is home base, Melzer has a presence in the Northern Brazil through some of his new company acquisitions. Check out Odiario to know more.
According to Pauliceiadojazz, Duda has a reputation as a no-nonsense businessman. He understands the marketing and media markets. Melzer is a Harvard graduate and a successful franchise owner. Melzer built a massive media empire thanks to previous management contributions from his grandfather, Mauricio Sirotsky Sobrinho, and his uncle, Nelson Sirostky. But most of the company growth is the product of Duda Melzer’s management style and forward thinking. Duda knows the Brazilian market, and he knows how to sell the sizzle in the media business.
