Brazilian businessman, Felipe Montero Jens says he is a supporter of the National Bank for Economic and Social Development program that will help bring private capital and enterprise to Brazil’s water and sanitation services. Mr. Montero Jens believes that the sanitation and water supply service industry will benefit tremendously from the influx of capital and new technology from private business. He points out that the majority of waste treatment and water treatment comes from the public sphere in Brazil. While there are some excellent public providers, there are many that are failing to provide quality and reliable services. That is a serious problem to Brazilians points out Felipe Montero Jens.
Mr. Montero Jens believes that private companies should take over operations where the public companies are failing to provide adequate services. He states that the private companies can bring with them new technologies. The new technology can reduce water waste. This will result in a more stable and reliable water supply. It will also be better for the environment.
Another important factor that cannot be missed is the fact that private firms will often invest large sums of their own money into public infrastructure such as the water supply system and the sewer system. This is very important because many areas in Brazil desperately need these systems repaired or expanded. Bringing private firms to these areas is one way that this can be accomplished.
Felipe Montero’s background includes holding positions in planning, finance, management and oversight for various companies in both Brazil and abroad. He used to work for the Italian company called Terna S.p.A which is part of the Enel Group. Mr. Jens also worked for the multinational firms Enron and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Mr. Montero Jens studied at the Getúlio Vargas Foundation in Brazil. He completed a bachelor of business administration program there. Later, he completed an MBA in international management at the University of Arizona. http://relationshipscience.com/felipe-montoro-jens-p24643181
