About Arlindo

Arlindo brings extensive experience in strategy and corporate-finance topics, in addition to serving clients in the infrastructure sector and in the development and management of resources. He also leads our work in regulatory and stakeholder management in South America.

Arlindo’s client experience includes developing corporate and market-entry strategies for companies in Brazil and around the world—in sectors as diverse as steel, ethanol, consumer goods, and utilities. In mergers and acquisitions (M&A), he has advised both buyers and sellers in a variety of industries.

In infrastructure, Arlindo has supported several of Brazil’s major transportation and urban-development initiatives, including a major set of projects for the federal government, and the largest-ever infrastructure project for a state in the northeastern part of the country. He has advised leading operators and investors in the region, including helping an international consortium prepare its bid for the privatization of Brazil’s major airports.

Arlindo offers in-depth experience in regulatory topics and has worked on several projects involving transport and energy regulation. He coled the Brazilian Air Sector Study (also the topic of a book published in 2009), which presented a comprehensive analysis of the country’s airport and air-transport sectors.
