Rogério Zampronha Named to Utopus Insights Board of Directors
Zampronha, President, Vestas LATAM South, replaces Rasmus Lundsgaard Nielsen, who formerly served as Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy and M&A at Vestas.
“I am very excited to join the Utopus Insights Board of Directors. The energy sector is undergoing a huge transformation through digitalization, and Utopus is well-positioned to lead this process, so it is a great opportunity to be part of this journey.”
Christian Venderby, Board Chairman and Executive Vice President, Service at Vestas, said he is delighted to have Zampronha join the Utopus Insights Board.
“Rogerio’s vast experience, first as a successful software entrepreneur, and more recently, as the successful leader of the complex LATAM business for Schneider Electric and now Vestas, brings a strong combination of skills and experience which will benefit Utopus as we now gear up to capture the full potential of our Scipher products,” Venderby said.
Vestas, the largest wind turbine manufacturer in the world, acquired New York-based Utopus Insights in February 2018. Utopus Insights operates as an independent company with its own Board of Directors, with two representatives from Vestas on the Board.
Rogério joined the Vestas LATAM office in Brazil in 2015 with the mission of implementing the company’s strategic roadmap in the region. Prior to that he served as President of Schneider Electric Brazil.
Chandu Visweswariah, Founding President and CEO, Utopus Insights, who also serves on the Board, said, “We are fortunate to have someone of Rogerio’s caliber and rich experience join the team at a time of rapid growth for us as a company. I look forward to a fresh and strategic perspective from Rogério. His commercial experience will enable us to scale new heights,” Visweswariah said.
Zampronha has more than 20 years of experience in the finance and energy industries. He began his career in investment banking, followed by a couple of successful business ventures, including Soft Brasil, focused in the areas of telemetry, industrial automation, manufacturing management and process optimization. Schneider Electric bought Soft Brasil in 2010.
Within three years, Zampronha was appointed as Schneider’s President for Brazil, following which he was closely involved in several acquisition and integration processes for several companies, including two technology firms.
Zampronha holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from São Paulo University (SP/Brazil) and an MBA from IMD (Lausanne/Switzerland).
