he Brazilian project management
community is sad to announce
that Márcio Prieto, a member of
the PMI São Paulo, Brazil Chapter
founders group, passed away on 7 July.
Mr. Prieto was a great mentor and an ad-
vocate for project management in Brazil.
His life was committed to teaching and
sharing PMI’s knowledge and vision in
Brazil since the 1970s, when he became
the first PMI member in Brazil. He led an
initiative to establish the former PMI
Brazil Chapter, which at that time was the
first PMI chapter outside of North Amer-

the Year award in 1980.
Later he supported the founding of the
PMI São Paulo, Brazil Chapter and was
elected the chapter president twice. He
was one of the core steering team
members on the PMI Community Transformation Project.
The Brazilian project management com-
munity will always remember and thank
Mr. Prieto for all his efforts to bring

of honoring him that the PMI Con-
sulting Community of Practice would
like to remember our professional col-

Mr. Marriott personally, you would agree
that he had an entertaining wit, and his
never-ending passion for helping others
and sharing his knowledge will live on. We
will miss his professional contributions,
personal kindness and generous heart,
knowledge, develop the culture,
and advocate on
behalf of project
management practitioners and PMI
around the globe.
