Marcos Lisboa receives new award for his work in the education sector
Last Thursday, August 27, Marcos Lisboa, president of Insper, received the “Executivo de Valor” (“Executive of Value,” in a free translation) in the Education Sector award. The distinction is granted by Valor Econômico, a leading business news outlet in Brazil. In its 20th edition, the award recognizes 23 CEOs, who are elected by a panel of headhunters from 16 consulting firms.
According to Valor, to deserve the title of “Executivo de Valor” — amid the economic uncertainties of 2019 and before the big test of the pandemic in 2020 —, company presidents needed to demonstrate the ability to be ahead of what the market demands, expertise in building high-performance teams, attention to organizational reputation, a keen eye for innovation management, and incentive to digital transformation.
“I would like to thank Valor Econômico for the award and emphasize that the pandemic has brought immense challenges, especially for a school. The transition to the remote environment had been very abrupt. The challenges were brought up both to the classroom and school management. The post-pandemic challenge will be learning how to reconcile these two worlds — [defining] what can be remote, and is working very well, and what should be in person”, said Marcos.
