Pierre Thomé de Souza graduated in Marketing Management (ESPM), he received the Thomé de Souza Medal of Cultural Merit in the Degree of Commander awarded by the Federation of Academies of Arts and Letters of São Paulo for his contributions in social and dissemination, development and promotion of Ethics and Leadership in Brazil. With his skills he is now going to set up a new DAA department in Brazil, because the number of HIV infections there are rising again. Thomé likes the way DAA works and is going to spread HIV/AIDS awareness like we do here, using the support of celebs, companies and media. We think it’s a great initiative and we wish the new DAA departement the best of luck!
