Submit the press release

Alexandre Almeida, former CEO of Itambé, takes on the position of Brazil's General Manager; Leonardo Byrro takes on Supply Vice President

SAO PAULO, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, BRF announced changes to its management team to address two objectives. The first is to strengthen national and global operations of BRF to better serve its clients and sustain growth. The second objective allows BRF to continue to provide quick and transparent answers to the challenges it has been experiencing since the Weak Flesh Investigation and the consequent impacts it has caused to the Brazilian agribusiness.

To address these objectives, two separate divisions were created: Response Management and Business Management.

The Response Management division, led by BRF Director, Simon Cheng is comprised of a multidisciplinary team that will assist the Special Response Committee.

Pedro Faria, Global CEO will turn his focus back to the management of BRF's business and oversee the Business Management division. The Business Management division will allow BRF to maintain focus on the quality of its operations and on the day-to-day activities, including the continuous evolution of its management model. This structure is temporary, but may remain active if deemed necessary by BRF.

Alexandre Almeida, former CEO of Itambé, joins BRF to lead the Brazilian market, conduct the integration process and prioritize ongoing initiatives. Mr. Almeida, is replacing Rafael Ivanisk, who made a personal decision to leave the Company. BRF thanks Mr. Ivanisk for his service during his tenure with the company.

Leonardo Byrro, who shared the role of Brazil General Manager with Rafael Ivanisk, will assume the position of Supply Vice President. This change aims to accelerate the planning process and the optimization of BRF's value chain. This new configuration will allow for an increased focus on the agroindustry management, an important competitive differentiator of BRF.

The Global Quality department will now report directly to Pedro Faria.

Pedro Navio, former CEO Latam of RedBull, recently joined BRF and will lead the strategic global Marketing and Innovation agenda.

These new executives will join the BRF leadership team, without holding a statutory office. BRF continues its intense work of rethinking the current management model to better serve its customers and shareholders.

Summary:

Nonfinancial private sector debt increased significantly in advanced economies prior to the global financial crisis and, with a few exceptions, deleveraging has been limited. Furthermore, in some countries households and corporations have continued to accumulate debt. Drawing on the literature, the paper aims to provide a quantitative assessment of the gaps between actual and sustainable levels of debt and to identify the key factors that drive excessive borrowing. Results suggest that variables that are typically found important in studies focusing on borrowing decisions, are also relevant for explaining the debt sustainability gaps.

Jay Eitner – Attends New Jersey Edcamp Leadership Summit

Submit the press release

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2017 / Founder of Eitner Education, Jay Eitner recently attended the Edcamp Foundation‚s Leadership Summit held in Parsippany, New Jersey over the weekend of March 10-12th, 2017. The event was part of a series of more than 700 conferences across 25 countries that have been produced as part of the organizer’s mandate to advance self-directed learning among educators, with operational and lead funding coming from sponsors such as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and The NewSchools Seed Fund. Participants including superintendents, administrators, teachers, and coaches were invited to share best practices, to collaborate in addressing common issues, and to focus on professional development.

With close to 4 million elementary and secondary school teachers instructing 50 million students in the United States, the American public education system is undoubtedly complex and suffers from shortcomings—as assistant professor of education Jack Schneider observes in a piece published by the Atlantic. In cross-national assessments such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), the United States regularly ranks around the median of a group of 71 countries, reflecting much room for improvement. It is within this pedagogic framework that Jay Eitner attends multiple national conferences such as Edcamp’s in an effort to adapt and disseminate innovative strategies for educators in US schools.

Over the course of the Leadership Summit, which is offered at no cost, participants are engaged as equals and are directly responsible for shaping the schedule and content of the event’s workshops. National School Board Educational Technology Leader and Edcamp attendee Adam Schoenberg reflects that a „common thread throughout was the need for empathy throughout our schools” achieved by teachers adopting an understanding that learning can be an uncomfortable experience.

Similarly, Eitner Education offers balanced professional development curriculum and dialogue opportunities for educators and administrative staff who are seeking new methodologies to strengthen the school system. Founded in 2012, this forward-thinking initiative is fueled by owner-operator Jay Eitner’s regular participation in regional and national educator conferences such as the annual AASA (American Association of School Administrators) and NJASA Spring seminar (New Jersey Association of School Administrators). In recognition of the importance of technology in the classroom, the material offered by Eitner Education is often inclusive of cutting-edge application tutorials and suggested tech resources.

Jay Eitner holds a BA in interdisciplinary studies from the American University in Washington, DC and an MA in curriculum and instruction from Kean University in New Jersey. With multiple board certifications and professional experience as a teacher, supervisor and superintendent across two districts, he is well-versed in public education delivery and administration and has been recognized as 2015 national BAMMY Superintendent of the Year as well as the 2016 AASA National Educator to Watch. Notable achievements have included the sourcing and application of over $4,000,000 in grants for technology enhancement in the Lower Alloways Creek School District and oversight of a major $80,000,000 school construction project for the Waterford Township School District. Jay Eitner regularly shares invaluable insights on Twitter, Facebook and his personal blog.
