Sampaio will to assume the post after a shareholders meeting in June. The conglomerate will also reshuffle its full board and appoint mostly independent members, which should diminish political influence. A total will have six members will sit on the board. Sampaio emerged as option only because Emílio Odebrecht and his son, Marcelo Odebrecht (pictured), two of the group's major shareholders, disagreed over Newton de Souza as chairman. This disagreement delayed the announcement of the new chairman, initially set for April. De Souza, who began working at Odebrecht in 1988 in the legal area and is currently vice chairman, is considered a confidante of Emílio Odebrecht.
