Economist Roberto Castello Branco has accepted an invitation from President-elect Jair Bolsonaro’s team to chair Petrobras, an advisory note from future economics minister Paulo Guedes said.

He will take command of the state-owned company in place of Ivan Monteiro, who was tipped to remain in charge of the oil company. Castello Branco holds a PhD in Economics from the Getúlio Vargas Foundation and a Post Doctoral Fellow in Economics from the University of Chicago, and has been director of the Central Bank and Vale, among other posts.
