Steve Oldham fulfilled every returned missionary's dream: He brought the culture of his mission back home with him. Now, he is the CEO of Tucanos Brazilian Grill.
"Somebody had to do it," Oldham said.
After serving a mission in Curitiba, Brazil, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Oldham received an accounting degree from BYU and eventually moved to Sao Paulo with his family to work. He started out working for Price Waterhouse Coopers but changed jobs to work for PepsiCo, an international food and beverage company that at one time operated restaurants.He's stayed in the restaurant business ever since.
