Mr. Rodrigues will assume his new duties immediately, taking over from interim Country Manager, Glen Hopkinson.
Commenting on the leadership transition, Joe Tocco, CEO Americas said: “First and foremost I want to express gratitude to Glen for stepping up to lead the team while the search for the new leader took place these past few months.
