According to Ricardo Tosto, it was a quite a tough and difficult year. “The employees have had to work hard to maintain regular revenue.” Said Ricardo Tosto. Brazil is experiencing a crisis and the clients have come up with demands for fee renegotiation. Leite, Tosto, and Barros aim at maximum customer satisfaction, renegotiated customer fees and the costs with suppliers. It was a way of adapting the services with the delicate moment to which the Brazilian economy lives “, added Ricardo Tosto.
Another strange factor that exposes the Brazilian case with the Leite, Tosto and Barros office was the increase in the demands of the services involving complexities and high values. Ricardo Tosto indicates the increase in these demands in 2016 with the largest corruption scheme ever started in Brazil. According to him, countless companies, contractors, and builders were involved in this scheme. Thus, Lava-Jet’s own investigations were the propulsion for the considerable increase of these demands.
