Diego is currently enrolled at Fundação Getúlio Vargas, one of Brazil’s top universities, and is working towards earning his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. When he’s not in class he is either aiding in the fundraising efforts for the University’s student association or working as a monitor in the University’s Corporate Finance and Accounting office.
Prior to his internship at Banyan, Diego worked in a startup specialized in recruitment that would advertise job posts. During his time there he helped the team with business development efforts and helped develop the process of the sales department of the company.
Diego also spends his time working for a non-profit organization that helps Venezuelan refugees start their own businesses through the assistance of the Brazilian banking industry. His work with Banyan has been fascinating to him. “I recognize that all families have challenges,” he says, “but for family businesses those challenges are on a much larger scale.”
