In his new role, Pereira reports into the company's head for Latin America, Eduardo Kfouri.

The previous Brazil country manager at the company, Marcelo Rezende, left Qlik to join tax and accounting software firm Wolters Kluwer in February as a managing director.

Qlik launched operations in Brazil in 2016. The country was chosen as the main Latin America base as it is the firm's main market in the region, followed by Mexico.
