Ep. 120 Mobile Marketing Executives Should Be a Voice for Minorities

Renato Camargo is the Country Manager and Chief Marketing Officer of RecargaPay, one of the biggest fintech companies in Brazil. He left retail to work for the financial services app for two reasons: He saw a business opportunity in democratizing banking in Brazil where over 60 million people can’t access banks; and, the mobile marketing industry provided a space for Renato to be himself and use his voice. He is passionate about leveraging his corporate power to create more inclusive opportunities for the LGBTQ community and other minorities.

Renato was nominated as one of the Outstanding Top 100 Executives of 2021 by Yahoo Finance. He is based in São Paulo.
