Banco do Brasil President set to become Petrobras’ CEO
Following resignations by the majority of its top management, including the CEO Maria das Graças Silva Foster, Petrobras is today set to turn the page by revealing its new Chief Executive Officer.
According to Brazil’s O Globo newspaper, the oil company engulfed in several corruption scandals, will name Aldemir Bendine, President of Banco do Brasil, as the successor to Maria das Graças Silva Foster, following a meeting being held at the company’s Sao Paulo office.
To remind, earlier this week, Petrobras’ CEO and five of seven executive directors resigned following a widespread corruption scandal involving Petrobras officials, contractors and politicians.
As for the new CEO, the Brazilian newspaper has said that the official announcement is expected to be made at 17:30 local time.
