Felipe Montoro Jens has always been driven to improve Brazilian infrastructure and economy. Over the course of his career, he has held numerous positions that allowed him to act on this drive. He is currently the managing director at Odebrecht International in Sao Paulo, Brazil. His primary responsibility in this role is managing 12 Public-Private Projects (PPPs) that have been established throughout Brazil.
In January 2018 Felipe Montoro Jens was named the Infrastructure Projects Specialist for the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. This came with the announcement of the state’s first public-private house capital project which starts in 2018 and is expected to reach completion in 2023. As things get underway, Mr. Jens has initiated a survey that assesses the quality, implementation, and overall impact that this PPP will have. He has joined with many local developers and industry leaders to ensure that things go smoothly and that they accomplish the goal of creating 100,000 jobs in the state.

The end goal of this project – aside from creating jobs within the industry – is to supplement the government’s program, “My Home, My Life”. Under this program, the government has promised to add 25,000 new housing units by 2020. 4,000 of these will come from the PPP being managed by Mr. Jens and his company.
Another PPP that Mr. Jens is overseeing is in the Rio de Janeiro Municipality. Already underway, this project will add 40,000 new pre-schools and 20,000 new daycare facilities by 2020. In this PPP, the government will be responsible for managing the education facilities, while the private investor(s) will handle the construction and on-going maintenance of the daycare facilities.
Outside of the PPPs, Mr. Jens also oversees concession projects. The one most impactful right now is a concession regarding the Salgado Filho International Airport located in the state capital, Porto Alegre. This concession contract is valid for 25 years and outlines a shared investment between a German company, Fraport, and the federal public company, Infraero (in Brazil). The goal of this project – while not a direct PPP – will be to extend the runway and expand and update the terminal.
These are all examples of public-private projects that are under the supervision of Felipe Montoro Jens. If successful, they have the potential to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Brazilian citizens by providing housing, education, jobs, and more. While PPPs sometimes are more risky investment for the private investors, the payoff is exponentially more satisfying – both for the people of Brazil and the investors backing the projects.
