Shortly after starting his career in the telecommunications industry, Haroldo Jacobovicz set out on a new business venture and started e-Governe, one of Brazil’s leading network infrastructure service providers, in 2007. Mr. Jacobovicz’s career in telecommunications began at the age of 27, when he took over the reins of his father’s company, Electra, in a career that was later to span over two decades. It is from this post that Mr. Jacobovicz created a revenue model that, by 2015, had made him the biggest sole shareholder of the Brazilian telecommunications firm Claro.
Today, Mr. Jacobovicz is one of the key figures in the Brazilian telecom industry, having built numerous successful businesses through the years, and is regarded by the Brazilian media as the “King of Telecoms.” Haroldo Jacobovicz is known for his favorite quote: It is hard to stay on track and change the way you think and act.
