Who you are? DSC00443

Marcelo Hideaki Azuma, my grandparents came from Japan to Brazil and I was born in São Paulo, Brazil. Divorced, I have two sons, Marcos and Júlio.

I graduated in electrical engineering and always worked with software development by coding, team leading and managing projects, and sometimes teaching.

ITGROUP is my company, where we keep finding the right IT professionals and software developers for each of our enterprise customers. For them, we create software and take care of their software infrastructure, especially on Microsoft’s platform.

I have several Microsoft Professional Certifications and was named Microsoft MVP for the first time in 2005, as a Solutions Architect MVP and later as an ALM MVP.
