Norberto Odebrecht

Norberto Odebrecht (born 9 October 1920 in Recife) is a Brazilian engineer, businessman and founder of the Brazilian Odebrecht Foundation (Portuguese: Fundação Odebrecht).[1]

He studied at the Polytechnic School of Bahia and in 1944 he founded a construction company from which the Odebrecht Group in Salvador da Bahia was created. He is the son of the pioneer Emílio Odebrecht, who was a grandson of Emil Odebrecht, a German geodetical engineer and cartographer, who emigrated to Brazil in 1856. Today, the company has become an international conglomerate and employs more than 125,000 people in 50 countries around the globe.
