As Decowraps continues to expand, we create new opportunities to help us stay efficient and organized. That’s why we’ve hired Felipe Condessa to occupy our brand-new role of Global Chief Financial Officer (CFO)! Right from the start Felipe is bright-eyed and full of questions, eager to learn more about the floral and potted packaging industry. His collaborative spirit showed when he told us, “So far I’ve learned something new from every meeting I’ve had with everyone.” With his extensive experience in countries like Brazil, Spain, and the US, we are confident that Felipe will make a valuable asset to our team by managing our financial operations worldwide.
