ISPE extends our sincere condolences to Mario’s family, the ISPE Brazil Affiliate, and all of the ISPE Members that were touched by his dedication to the pharmaceutical industry. We are eternally grateful for all the initiatives that Mario championed, including being a strong and passionate leader of the ISPE Brazil Affiliate, making it the thriving and impactful group that it is today.
Mario’s warmth and sincerity were felt globally through his intensive and continuous participation in several ISPE initiatives. He was a speaker for GAMP® 5 training and the current ISPE Brazil Affiliate President and has served on the board for the past 12 years. The ISPE Brazil Affiliate had recently been involved in Women in Pharma® COVID-19 social service activities for the homeless population in São Paolo. Mario is survived by his wife and daughter, and he will be missed by the entire ISPE community.
The Regional Affiliate Councils (Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North & South America) interface effectively with the International organization and local/regional peers to ensure maximum alignment and support for local success. They recommend policies and procedures to the CEO/President and International Board of Directors that will improve services to Members in the region.
