“Rodolfo Manzon is one of the most intelligent business partners any successful entrepreneur could ever be blessed to have. His vast global experiences and world-wide contacts are a major asset to all of us here at Spectrum Realty Group.” Said Paul McRae, Managing Partner at Spectrum.
Originally from Brazil, Manzon was an executive at both Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Hertz. He helped develop several Enterprise segments including Corporate Diversity and Trucks. Following his time at Enterprise, Manzon ran the Hertz operation for Latin America out of Sao Paulo, Brazil. After his lengthy corporate tenure, Rodolfo left Hertz to become a chef and restaurateur, opening the restaurant Temaris in Miami where he invented the sushi ball mold. (‘temari’ is Japanese for sushi ball) He still owns the patent and says he might revive the concept some day.
“On a very superficial level, the most exciting thing about the Real Estate business in Miami it’s that it is so pretty. The homes, the condo’s the views, the water. It’s beautiful, sexy, elegant etc. I must confess that the resilience of the city and the potential of the market is exciting. Every time Miami goes through a cycle, it comes out better.” Says Manzon.
He is fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese and has visited over 60 countries around the world.
