The Eucatex company has been one of he most important in Brazil since the 1950s, but in the 21st century the company has been undergoing a series of improvements and modernizations that have been designed by President Flavio Maluf to keep the company at the top of the Brazilian economy. The life of Flavio Maluf has been dedicated to much more than just the company he has headed since 1997, but is also filled with a hectic family life and many different philanthropic options for success.
Flavio has provided inspiration for the local communities he has played a major role in within the Sao Paulo area of Brazil, and has seen success follow him to his family. The Maluf family now includes the three children Flavio shares with wife Jacqueline de Lourdes Coutinho Torres; one of his children has followed Flavio to study at the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation where Flavio himself studied to achieve a degree in Mechanical engineering. In a bid to prepare himself for a career he hoped would include many aspects of global business Flavio Maluf spent some time studying at New York University and has seen two of his children follow his example by studying in England.
After becoming resident of the Eucatex group in 1997 Flavio Maluf understood the need for the company to remain at the forefront of technology in the production of wood products that have always formed the basis of their product line. the new factories the company have developed in Brazil have had a positive effect on the local and national economies as Flavio makes sure he keeps his eyes on the international business world to make sure he is prepared when a new opportunity for success presents itself; the development of an education program based around the lumber industry is a good example of Eucatex looking to use the skills developed over many decades to stay at the top of the business sector they have developed over the years.
