In Brazil, Felipe Montoro Jens is known as an infrastructure expert. His bachelor’s degree is from the Getulio Vargas Foundation. His post-graduation is from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, which is a highly renowned center of education. Felipe Montoro Jens is currently serving as the CEO of Energipar Captacao S.A. before this he was working as the Director in many companies, namely, Braskem S.A, besides Concesionaria Trasvase Olmos S.A., along with Santo Antonio Energia S.A.
He has been responsible for raising huge investments for several types of sewage networks. This is why he is so excited that the Government of Brazil is getting into a partnership deal. This is with The National Bank For Economic and Social Development. This partnership is for the basic sanitation services. According to Felipe Montoro Jens, the current scenario in Brazil requires this kind of rigor which is quite prominent in any private institution. It will help in improving the financial condition too of any public institution.
The fact is that private agencies have all the technology along with technical expertise. But another fact is that the government agencies have the experience as they have handled such a large amount of workload. This would allow both the agencies to work in a complementary manner as that helps to enhance efficiency and make it cost effective too.
Felipe Montoro Jens believes that the type of utility is not the issue here. It is all about alignment between operations of the chosen utility along with the specific needs of a location. Thus the partnership will lead to a customized plan being made for each state to enhance efficiency. Even the costs have to be given their due consideration here. Such a partnership will be welcomed by all as it involves concessions too. This also means clear goals to be set while these contracts are being drafted.
