The beginning of Ricardo Guimarães’ careeer started when he worked for the BMG bank. He began working for the bank as his first professional job and was able to promote through the company at a fairly fast rate of speed. He strived to be the best of the best, which eventually paid off for him. Although this was the first part of his career, it turned out to be the only place that he worked up until this point. He was very successful at what he did with BMG and they eventually began to promote him through the ranks of the company. He became one of the most quickly promoted individuals that the company had seen during its time in the banking industry.
In 1989, Ricardo Guimarães was promoted to the executive financial officer. He was now able to make decisions regarding the bank and work toward financial excellence for all parts of the bank. This opportunity allowed him to become more successful in his banking career. He was able to provide people with the financial expertise that they needed and was able to give them opportunities that they did not have in the past at the BMG bank. He gave people options that they desired and needed to have for their banking experience.
There were many parts of the bank that needed to be changed and, as the executive financial officer, Ricardo Guimarães was able to enact these changes. He gave the people what they wanted out of the bank and gave them opportunities that they did not have prior to that time. There were many things that he chose to be able to do and many ways that the bank was able to be improved as a result. While some of these things were somewhat risky, they turned out to be the right decision for the bank because Guimarães made it possible for the bank to become more successful as a result of these decisions.
Once the bank became available for purchase in 2004, Ricardo Guimarães leaped on the opportunity to buy it. He knew that it was a great chance to be able to acquire something that he had poured his life into and it gave him the opportunity to make the bank a better place for the people who were members of it. As the owner, he was able to give the people more options when it came to their checking accounts, their loans and even the interest rates that are so important to a bank’s bottom line. Above all, he was able to dedicate more of the way the bank operated to the customers by helping them succeed at the financial goals they had for themselves.
