One of the minds behind the brand, Allan attended mechanical engineering courses in University, before becoming an entrepreneur. He worked at Santander Bank, where he had the chance to develop a number of projects in the goal and financial indicator sectors for the Aymore brand – a financial institution that used to be part of Real bank and is currently part of the Santander Group.
In 2011, while studying the repair and renovation markets in depth, he realized most services provided were terrible in terms of quality. Seeing that these companies would probably not last very long in a competitive market, he decided to join forces with a great builder he knew, an old friend of the family, and start Master House in 2012. The goal was to offer a new type of service to this difficult market.
Together with this construction ace, he gathered a profound knowledge of the market and got to experience the operational day to day of the company. This, in turn, allowed him to map out the problems and practical solutions that would better address them, really revolutionizing the segment. The result was a company growth beyond his wildest dreams, allowing him to franchise and establish branches all over Brazil.
