- Business Development
Erick, 25, is originally from Brazil, where he was hired through Rocket Internet (ETR: RKET) to be part of the founding team of the carpooling startup Tripda in Brazil, while still in incubating process. He was responsible for growth hacking strategies, closed several partnerships with events and executed digital marketing campaigns.
After 6 months, Erick was promoted from Tripda's Global team and put in charge of setting up Tripda’s operations in the Philippines from scratch. As of his departure, Tripda had grown into a 20+ people team, with a strong culture of empowerment and hustling and a very low turnover.
Back in Brazil, Erick coordinated the sale of his family's business before joining Wunder, where he is in charge of growing the Manila market by forming strategic partnerships.
Erick holds a Business Administration degree from Getulio Vargas Foundation and is a Schwarzman Scholar.
