100 Women are delighted to announce the appointment of Wilson Casado as an Ambassador to our organisation.
Wilson is the Co-Founder of business and technology consulting firm Visagio in Australia, which in the past decade has grown from a start-up to an award-winning team of more than 100 people.
As an entrepreneur, Wilson is passionate about supporting business leaders and entrepreneurs.
“We are all responsible for sharing our knowledge and experience to benefit others”
In addition to Visagio, Wilson is the Managing Partner of VICI Ventures, Chair of Perth Angels and Venture Partner at Antler with senior roles shared across their Sydney and Brazil offices. His career has afforded him the opportunity to have worked in Brazil, America, and Australia.
These opportunities came with challenges, accelerated growth and an ever-expanding appreciation for the benefits of diversity.
Casado admits he is forever looking for opportunities where most aren’t even looking. He firmly believes that education, innovation and diversity are key to our future success.
“From a young age, I was motivated and encouraged by my mother and grandmother and now as an adult, I recognise the sacrifices they made as women to support our family. This is where my passion for diversity was born – I believe we need everyone at the table for a future we can all get excited about. I have seen first-hand the impact of grassroot initiatives led by women and the impact of that in the community around us, this is why I am joining 100 Women”.
Casado is currently also serving as an Advisory Committee Member at AIM WA. He previously held senior management roles at mining giants BHP and Vale and was President of the community association BrazilWA.
According to Alicia Curtis, Co-Founder of 100 Women, the appointment of Casado as a 100 Women Ambassador will help elevate the charities vision to encourage diversity of thought and leadership when addressing gender equity.
“Wilson is a wonderful complement to our organisation and to the 100 Women community. As we grow and evolve as an organisation, it’s exciting to engage with visionary leaders like Wilson to amplify the impact we can create”.
