About Maeri

Our Philosophy

Since its founding in 2005, MAERI Consulting has adopted a humanist philosophy to face the challenges submitted by its clients.Beside the financial and economic objectives, we include in our approach the personal and professional goals of our clients, aiming to develop their ideas for the medium and long term in order to achieve all the goals fixed.

MAERI with its humanistic and international approach develops its work with the main objective of adding value to the "ideas" and the business of its customers.

This process of valuing requires investment, management and control. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the political and economic variables, market constraints and laws, so that the decision-making becomes more accurate and effective.

Strategies in the medium and long term are based on the observation of historical facts and on projections of future scenarios. Only a correct reading of the past allows the construction of reliable future scenarios, ensuring the reduction of planning and investment risks.

We believe in Brazil and we visualize excellent opportunities!

With a consumer market still largely untapped and a deficient infrastructure and logistics network, Brazil will demand many investments in the coming decades. Consequently, the entire economy will be fostered creating new consumers and new businesses.

In addition, the market concentration process will be continued by the major international players, always in search for economies of scale and for new market share in emerging economies, searching for new customers, and other more aggressive growth strategies.

In this context we assist our customers, so they can get better results and plan the future to take advantage of better opportunities.

We believe that the productive sector is responsible for the tangibility of the economy, being more effective than the financial system in achieving profitable and socioeconomic outcomes of medium and long term.


We apply rigorously the following principles in our work:

  • TRANSPARENCY - We say what we do.
  • COHERENCE - We do what we say.
  • ETHIC - We do what we believe to be the accurate procedure.
  • PROFESSIONALISM - We deliver results.
