He worked as an industrial engineer offering solutions to running machines and maintenance. For this reason, he was considered as the most active worker in the company. Everyone knew he would come to the top. In 1996, his uncle extended an invitation to Flavio Maluf to join the Board of Executive Members. In the seat, he was noted to be very innovative in his approaches. His business ideas were very viable. For this reason, the Board Members elected him as the president of the company. While they were on his side, the family members agreed and endorsed him as the serving president of Eucatex Group of Companies.

Every worker in the company would have a manager to whom they will report. The managers are answerable to the president of the enterprise.
