Marcio Andre Oliveira Brito (In the photo) was appointed the president of the National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technologies (Inmetro) this Wednesday (8). The confirmation of the name of the environmentalist engineer came from the official bulletin of the Union.
Since 2011, he has been the president of the Amazon Institute of Weights and Measures (Ipem-AM)., where he started as an intern. Now that he is taking up a position under the National Weights and Measures Authority, he reports to Brazil’s Minister of Development, Industry, Trade and Services, headed by Vice President Geraldo Alcmin.
His appointment took place two months after the resignation of Markos Heleno Gerson. The military appointee to the post by Jair Bolsonaro became famous after the president reignited the debate about taxi meters and tachographs in the country. Gerson is now at Ipem in Sao Paulo on the recommendation of former minister Tarcisio de Freitas.
