‘If music be the food of love, play on; give me excess of it…’ reads a quote, albeit in part, by the renowned writer cum poet christened William Shakespeare. Indeed, this was internalized and actualized by one Cassio Audi, whose gratification was to soothe souls through the undisputed powerful tool of music.
Who is Cassio Audi?
Born and raised up in Brazil, Cassio Audi pursued his education at the Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration in 1994. To further consolidate his academic credentials, he obtained his MBA in 1999 from the University of Sao Paulo.
Thereafter, the dawn of his career was marked by his core role at the Management desk of Assets at JP Morgan Chase. Moreover, he was elevated to a Senior Financial Analyst at the U.S. chemical Corporation-Dow Chemical in 1996. However, seeking greater challenges saw Cassio Audi serve at Gillette (Procter & Gamble) as its Chief Financial Officer between 1997 and 2006. Such enormous potential is always widely sought after. Consequently, GVMI absorbed him as its CFO till 2016. Without a doubt, Cassio Audi deservingly earned the exceptional recognition by the Institutional Investors Magazine in 2011 as the Best CFO in Latin America.
His Other Life
Elsewhere, being an integral part of the Viper Rock Music Band together with Yves, Andre, Pit, and Felipe, Cassio Audi jump-started his robust music career as a sensational heavy metal drummer. Through the dogged drummer, the band hogged the Brazilian airplay and were treated to an array of stage performances. Ultimately, their unfathomable success took them beyond the Brazilian borders to stage maiden shows across Europe and America. As such, Cassio kept on composing the band’s songs that eventually realized their first album, the Soldiers of Sunset, in 1987. Owing to its massive success, the record provided Audi and the band’s trajectory to stardom in rock and pop music portfolio.
Evidently, Cassio Audi enjoys a jig-saw fit in both the music industry and his finance profession. Nevertheless, his eminence is primarily attributed to his central role in heavy metal drumming as opposed to his expertise in the financial sector.
