Igor Fernando Ferreira
Corporate University Leader of the Year 2017

‘The life of our Leader of the Year begins in a low-income family in Brazil. When he was 12, he cleaned VHS tapes at a video rental store. At the age of 14 he was a crew member of a McDonald’s in Curitiba.
He was “forced” to leave McDonald’s, because he was admitted to a state school.
He is the living proof of social promotion through education.
He is now Senior Corporate Education Manager - Dean of McDonald's University - HU Latin America, the Biggest McDonald’s franchise in the world with 90,000 employees.
I name IGOR FERNANDO FERREIRA, who I invite to join us on stage as well as Nicolas URIBE POSADA, HR Director of McDonald's - Arcos Dorados and Christian Blanc, former CEO of Air France, to celebrate this amazing achievement.
Igor climbed the ladder step by step, studying without fail and finally obtained an executive MBA in 2015.
Igor, during your career, you served as Training Supervisor, Sales Supervisor, Human Resources Coordinator, journalist, and more recently as Human Resources Manager – Learning & Development at PepsiCo Brazil Foods, before rejoining McDonald’s Arcos Dorados.
On behalf of the Advisory and Judging Committee, I am really honored to reward you with the GlobalCCU Best Corporate University Leader of the Year 2017 for your body of work over your career, and also for what you do at the head of Hamburger University in Latin America. UH Brazil is no longer a university that "educates", but rather, a university that shares knowledge and learning.
Igor, judges appreciated particularly your vision and your Strategic plan in CSR, to prepare your employees – most of whom are aged between 17 and 25 years old – to be better citizens, aware of their rights and duties. They said that you are a prime example of an exceptional Chief Learning Officer’.
NiCOLAS, Hamburger University has had a reputation for excelling in strategy, branding and efficient delivery for a long time, and that was evident here.
The judges particularly appreciated that as a Leader in the Industry since 1961, you monitor the organization's KPIs and align with them, and not surprisingly. They also underlined the outstanding efforts in branding of HU.
It is Igor who is rewarded here tonight, but you can be sure that it is also HU as a whole that is on the stage this evening.
