André Strauss was one of the founding partners of Kadima in 2007. He played both the front and the back office, given the size of the company. With the rapid growth and the increasing demands of the _back_, he ended up focusing more on this area, where the pain was greater. From the front, he stayed only in the investment committee of the new strategies. In 2015, he was invited by Squadra and Itaú (credit recovery area) to be CEO of the phase out of CR2 Empreendimentos Imobiliários, making size adjustments (G&A), governance, liquidating assets and renegotiating debts. From 2017 to 2018, he took a sabbatical to work unpaid as CEO of the NOVO party, helping to make the internal structuring of the institution to the necessary size for future electoral challenges. From 2018 to 2020, he provided consulting services to two companies of analogous nature and scopes: a distressed assets manager (Iron Capital) (with some Private Equity and Real Estate) still in early stages and a boutique (Chimera), moving towards becoming a manager, with a portfolio of NPL club deals and some Private Equity deals in the pipeline. In these two houses, he helped in the internal structuring of the companies, as well as participated in the evaluation of deals and M&As, looking at the financial, operational and governance aspects of the possible investees. In the last year, together with friends, who own a medium size consulting company (EloGroup) (revenues of 140MM), he dedicated to set up a holding company using consulting as a lever in the investees. André is currently a liquid assets analyst at Opportunity. He has a degree in Production Engineering from UFRJ, with a course in Board Governance from IBGC.
