Henrique Bezerra
Deputy Country Manager & Government Relations Director

Henrique started his Government & Private Sector Relations experience 14 years ago in Brasilia at the External Affairs Office of Shell. While in Brasilia, he has also worked as a market intelligence consultant for the World Bank and Organization of American States, in close collaboration with the Ministries of Agriculture, Trade and External Affairs. He moved on to become project director at Focus Report, a Paris-based specialist consultancy where he conducted Country Reports on the Pharma and Energy sectors of 9 emerging and developed economies in Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
