Flavio Maluf Gives his Opinion on the Recent Departure of the UK from the European Union


Flavio Maluf is a Brazilian-based entrepreneur, President, and CEO of Eucatex and Grand food. Maluf holds a degree in mechanical engineering from the FAAP and studied business at the New York University. Flavio Maluf joined Eucatex in 1987. He started working in the trade division in the company and later moved to the industrial sector. Over the years, Flavio climbed the ranks and joined the team of executives in the company in 1996. In the following year, he became the president of Eucatex.


Eucatex was the first Brazilian company to use more eco-friendly raw materials in the production industry. It uses eucalyptus in the manufacture of sheets and panels. This has seen them give to funds to reforestation projects in order to have a reliable supply of raw materials. Under the leadership of Flavio Maluf, the company has now expanded its services to include paints, varnishes, wall partitions, laminate floors, and doors among others. They also have offices in Holland, Germany, United Kingdom, USA, and Mexico.


Flavio Maluf understands the current and future global market trends in the business world. He made some contributions regarding the UK departure from the European Kingdom, which contributed to a sudden drop in the value of the British currency. Maluf states that the UK decision may contribute to a decrease in the investments that the country receives. This is because the free movement and trade between the United Kingdom and other European countries are no longer possible.

Flavio Maluf cited a possibility of the UK holding bilateral agreements with other nations like Brazil since the European Union standard that bound the country are no longer applicable. He predicts that the other countries that make up the EU will also experience significant economic problems since the UK was one of the core countries in the Union.


Flavio Maluf married his wife Jacqueline de Lourdes Torres Coutinho in 1986, and together they have three children. He offers free investment tips to people as a way of giving back to the community. Mr. Maluf also takes part in various charity events and volunteering in the community. Additionally, he has made collaborations with the Hospital and Maternity Lang Carli.  Read more about him on Wikipedia:
