BMG is a bank that has always been big and successful. It is a bank in Brazil that has many accounts as well as other parts to the bank. It is a place that is enjoyable and has become even more so in the years since 2004 when it was taken over by Ricardo Guimarães.
In 1980, fresh out of college, Ricardo Guimarães began working for the BMG bank. He started working there as his first job and did not know that it would eventually be owned by him. Although he did not know exactly what he was going to do at the bank, he was sure that he was going to make it big there. He wanted to make sure that he was going to get the best of the bank and consistently strived to make it better. Ther were many times when Ricardo Guimarães wanted to give up, but he stuck to it.
After several promotions, overcoming hardships and working his hardest to make the bank better, Ricardo Guimarães was promoted to the executive financial officer in 1989. This was an anomaly because he had only worked with the company for less than a decade and had no prior experience when he started with the company. There were many things that he did to get this promotion, but among the best were the way that he continued to push forward and excel with greatness in his positions.
During his time as the EFO, he was able to make major positive changes at the bank. He made sure that he was always looking toward the future of the bank and pushed for the bank to become a better place for everyone who did business there. During this time, he made nearly all of the financial decisions of the bank and was at the head of the table when it came to decisions that were ultimately made by the bank. He practiced his skills and honed in what he had been doing to prepare him for what was going to come in 15 years.
The bank was up for sale in 2004 and Ricardo Guimarães jumped on the opportunity to purchase it. This bank was his pet project and he was sure that he was going to be able to run it successfully. Despite there being some hardships that he has faced with the bank since he took over, he has managed to make it a better functioning bank than it was in the past. He has worked with the employees to make them more satisfied, worked with customers to give them better options and worked with other financial institutions to ensure that he was offering the best in banking.
