Eduardo Sirotsky Melzer, who is also commonly known as Duda Melzer is a Brazilian businessman and entrepreneur. He is a grandson to the late founder of the RBS group of companies. According to clicrbs.com, he is also the current president and chairman to the company’s board of directors. His company invests in businesses which offer services connected to the digital sector and it has managed to create an influence that spans from their base, the Rio Grande do Sul to other places, such as the United States.
Duda finished his school when he was 26. He studied Business Administration at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul. This was followed by an MBA from Harvard. Presently, he is 44 years old and the journey that he has taken to the current position shows how easy it is to continue and even improve on the business legacy that was left behind by others that had a similar vision.
Many of the people that have listened to Eduardo speaking and watched his leadership style state that they are inspired by the fact that he did not really have to invest so deeply in improving themselves, but he did. He states that the business leader that inspires him the most is the American John Davis. John is a professor in Harvard and is also one of the most popular business consultants on the globe. The success and survival of a business from one generation to the next depends on the ability of the leadership of the business to create a clear cut difference between the ‘family’ aspect of the business and the professional.
Duda is also a philanthropist and a family man, besides his business leadership prowess. As he states on his Twitter account, when one is blessed and they do not take the initiative of giving back to society, their success is not worth much.
