International business consultancy Visagio has made the largest number of Australian partnership promotions since its local founding, with four professionals stepping up in Sydney and Perth.

Management consultancy Visagio has welcomed Alexandre Sander, Raissa Amaral, Luan Mai and Jack Hill to its partnership. Notably, all four started out at the firm as interns.

Visagio, which is headquartered in Brazil, said the partnership intake was the largest in its Australian history, with the firm’s overall local headcount growing to 110 professionals since its 2011 founding.

“With offices spanning the east and west coast, these new partners will be instrumental in driving our continued expansion and enhancing key business units,” the firm stated, with Perth-based managing partner Monique Mattos Vimercati adding: “We pride ourselves on being a people platform, and having our talents starting as interns and being promoted to partners is a testament to our commitment to their continued development.”

Alexandre Sander
Three of the promotions were made in Visagio’s Perth office, including Alexandre Sander, who joined the firm’s technology division in its Rio de Janeiro home base in 2015 before transferring to Australia at the start of 2018. Since arriving, Sander has been serving resource sector clients on process improvement and business intelligence projects, bringing expertise in data analytics and robotic process automation (RPA).

Raissa Amaral
A process and productivity digital solutions specialist covering the resources, logistics and real estate industries, Raissa Amaral likewise joined the firm as an intern in Rio before shifting to Perth six months later at the beginning of 2017. As a newly appointed partner, Amaral has been tasked with helping to grow Visagio’s ‘v(dev)’ business, which focuses on developing and improving software solutions for clients.

Luan Mai
Also based out of Perth, Luan Mai will meanwhile focus on Visagio’s nationwide ‘VLabs’ business unit, which covers advanced analytics and AI. A PhD-holder in mining engineering from Curtin University, he first joined the local branch of Visagio in 2017, and has since led projects for mining, logistics and agriculture clients in areas such as fleet decarbonisation, supply chain management, and predictive modelling.

Jack Hill
Meanwhile, Jack Hill has been elevated to partner in Visagio’s Sydney office after crossing from Perth, where he first joined in 2017 while completing a masters in mechanical engineering from the University of WA. Since then, Hill has served clients in the resources, logistics, manufacturing and consumer goods sectors on projects spanning R&D delivery, operational transformation, change management, ESG and analytics.
