The MEI community extends a warm welcome to Chris Brown who is the new lead for our activities in Rio. Chris has a strong Communications and Business Strategy background and brings a powerful addition to the MEI team. Post London 2012, and the Summer holidays, we have seen an immediate uptake in interest in Brazil. Regrettably, some of this has been when companies have met significant challenges when operating unsupported and working remotely leading to the inevitable challenges which then occur. It is for this reason we firmly believe that our workshop approach to be very clear about how best to approach the market, working with Nabas Legal, is a highly optimal way to progress and then using our in-country team in Rio, Sao Paulo and Recife.
