PGL Employee Spotlight: Gilberto Stanke

employee spotlight Gilbero Stanke

Gilberto Stanke was born in Recife, a city located in Northeast Brazil. His family, originally from Southern Brazil, moved to Rio de Janeiro when he was three years old. He still lives there today and was responsible for opening the company’s first office there in 2013. As the General Manager for Point Brazil, Gilberto is responsible for the overall activities of the company in the country.

His day-to-day responsibilities include managing the office, supervising sales and operations.

His best career advice is to “treat the customer with care, honesty and attention, be flexible, don’t make up stories when problems arise – tell the truth right away!”

When not in the office, Gilberto enjoys biking around the city, taking his four-year-old daughter to play in the parks, squares, and beaches of Rio, and eating Mediterranean food. He has traveled to different countries, including the USA, Europe and South America. New York is one of the places he has not visited yet, but is on his bucket list.

It is great to have you part of the Point Global Logistics Team!
