Murilo Ferreira is among business leaders given a “Prêmio Executivo de Valor”

Murilo Ferreira, Vale’s CEO

Vale’s CEO, Murilo Ferreira, was one of 23 business leaders to be given an award at the 15th edition of the Valor Executive Awards, organized by newspaper Valor Econômico to honour the best executives in Brazil. The awards ceremony took place on Monday, May 25, in São Paulo. The newspaper also published an article featuring Ferreira.

In the article, Ferreira talks a little about his career and issues such as economic conditions and ethics. “Seeing history changing and trying to evaluate why things are happening motivates me a lot,” he said. This has been a characteristic of his since he was a young boy growing up in Uberaba, in the Triângulo Mineiro region of Minas Gerais. “When I was 11, I would read two newspapers per day from cover to cover in Uberaba. At that time, I was already reading about international politics, something I like until today.”
