Frederico Curado

Frederico Curado has been CEO and President of Embraer-Empresa Brasileira De Aeronáutica S.A. since 2007. Joining Embraer in 1984, he has during that time worked across everything from manufacturing to procurement, information technology to sales.

Founded in 1969, Embraer is one of the world’s leading plane manufacturers, particularly in the smaller personal jet and single-aisle commercial plane markets. One of the company’s major growth areas is China where it has had a base since 2000, and Curado believes emerging markets will play a big role in the future global business landscape, with major national companies like his becoming the next "emerging multinationals,"
