Flavio Maluf; President of Eucatex and Philanthropist

Most people would love to be their own boss and maybe own their own business and most need help on where to begin exactly. In the United States, the waiting time to start up a business is five days; however, if you are starting a business in Brazil, the wait is 107, and even more if you have regulations to meet and special certifications.


Flavio Maluf, an executive, businessman, and president of Eucatex, understands the ins and outs of having your own business. Flavio got his start with graduating from Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation in mechanical engineering, and studied administration at New York University. In 1987, he became part of the Eucatex Group and has been there ever since. He started in trade, and then went to the industrial area, and in 1996 his uncle invited him to become a part of the Executives in the Eucatex Group. In 1997, Flavio became president of Eucatex and is currently still the president of the company. He modernized Eucatex, and it has grown to include two factories, one in Salto, and the other in Botucatu, Sao Paulo. The company is the first of its kind to think up acoustic and environmental comfort by using materials like eucalyptus in its plates and panels.


In addition to his duties at Eucatex, Flavio Maluf gives back to his community, by being a part of charity events and volunteering. He recently worked jointly with the Hospital and Maturnidade Idio Carli, formerly home to Santa Emilia Health. Flavio is married to Jacqueline de Lourdes Coutinho Torres, and they have 3 children together.











The Partnership That Will Yield Great Results

The government has remarkable experience while the private sector has the resources needed and advanced technology.


Felipe Montoro Jens, an expert in infrastructure projects, commented that water wastage has drained a lot of financial resources of the water sector and solving that issue will be the first step closer to receiving services performed. A close eye should be kept on the sectors that are receiving the services, thorough inspection to be done and clear goals on the contracts stated. This way, what is needed will be provided and accountability kept. Edison Carlos indicated that it is only when the need of the people is met and the mode of operation of the selected utility is in line, that a firm is said to be effective.
