Miranda, the company said in a statement, graduated in business administration from the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul and holds an MBA from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

Born in Aquidauana, Mato Grosso do Sul, he joined Souza Cruz as a trainee in 1992, and worked across countries such as Brazil, China, Canada and England, in addition to being CEO of a company in Brazil.

At Alpargatas, the company added, Miranda’s mandate is to play an essential role in continuing the transformation process that began in 2023, with a focus on simplification and efficiency, as well as leading the company in executing its new strategies, combining the resumption of sustainable growth with operational excellence.
