Stocks in this article: HRS

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has named veteran Latin America business leader Reinaldo C.B. Rezende president of operations in Brazil.

In this new role, Rezende is responsible for the company’s operations, business development, marketing, shared services and government relations in Brazil. He will help increase Harris’ infrastructure and partnerships in the region and support efforts to expand its presence – particularly in the commercial energy, healthcare, public safety, government, military, and civilian agency markets.

Rezende brings to Harris nearly 30 years of in-country business development experience. He joins Harris from General Electric, where he was an executive in the Global Accounts Group. Prior to that role, he held a number of leadership positions at Halliburton, a global leader in the energy industry, where he was responsible for growing revenue and earnings, including Brazil country operations manager, Brazil country business development manager, Latin America business development manager, and global account manager for Petrobras, an integrated energy company.

Rezende holds a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from Brazil’s Universidade Católica de Petrópolis, a master’s in business administration from Universidade de São Paulo, a master’s in finance from Ibmec, and a master’s in operations and total quality management from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte. He also is a graduate of the Mays Business School Center for Executive Development at Texas A&M University.

“Reinaldo is a seasoned business leader with a proven track record of building effective relationships and delivering results in Brazil,” said William M. Brown, president and chief executive officer, Harris Corporation. “Brazil’s expanding oil and gas industry, military and public safety modernization efforts, and infrastructure upgrades in preparation for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics provide exciting opportunities for Harris. I am confident that Reinaldo will continue to strengthen our in-country presence and operations, positioning us for growth in the years ahead.”
