It definitely takes more than just brains to start out as a doctor and emerge as a successful entrepreneur in healthcare. It seems that Edson de Godoy Bueno has found the elixir for success, but he surely didn’t inherit any of it. His humble beginning as the son of a truck driver didn’t stop him from becoming a doctor and owning his own company.
He is the CEO of his own dream company Amil, headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that has set up several hospitals for providing health care and dental services to thousands of people in Brazil. It was long after he founded Amil that he envisioned a colossal project and merged with UnitedHealth to provide enhanced health care plans.
