In the 1980s, the Curitiba native was attracted and impressed by the IT potential instead of exploring construction and civil engineering. Since then, Haroldo Jacobovicz has been moving and headed several companies specialized in hardware and software services, telecommunications, as well as cloud communications like Horizons Telecom.
Haroldo Jacobovicz had four siblings, and his mother was called Alfredo, a university professor, and among the few civil engineers in Sarita. Haroldo took to his parents’ career paths, but the passion for new and emerging technology sparked his eyes.
Haroldo Jacobovicz was curious about the planet’s happenings, and so has been a voracious reader of magazines and newspapers. This level of reading combined with the acquisition of information made him more visionary and one who was grounded to follow reality. Even though Haroldo was aware success needed some talent and hard work, he knew that luck was necessary.
Jacobovicz combined three allies with perfect computer skills before leaving school to develop a microsystem later used at Horizons Telecom. The idea was to serve pharmacies, supermarkets, and stores with proper cash control and inventory automation. However, the retail sector was not prepared for automation, and so in just a year, the venture closed, but Haroldo sailed on.
Therefore, he moved on to the big businesses and determined that a leading oil distributor in the US called Exxon Mobil Corporation was hiring. Haroldo Jacobovicz went through group dynamics and several testing sessions and was chosen out of about 200 engineers. In just a month, Jacobovicz advanced from a mere salesperson to become a renowned market evaluator until he was promoted to take charge of commercial tactics.
