Tribute to Carlos Geraldo Langoni

(July 24, 1944 – June 13, 2021)


On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, we regretfully inform you of the passing, on June 13, 2021 at the age of 76, of Carlos Geraldo Langoni, former President of the Central Bank of Brazil, former Director of Fundação Getúlio Vargas, and longtime Chamber supporter.  A friend to many members and Directors, Dr. Langoni was always willing to assist the Chamber and, through FGV Projetos, partnered with the Chamber on many initiatives.  His participation in joint projects elevated the quality of Chamber programs and strengthened ties between Brazil and the United States.

Dr. Langoni graduated from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and was awarded a scholarship to study at the University of Chicago, where he became the first Brazilian in 1970 to earn a doctorate in Economics.  He was invited to teach at FGV’s Graduate School of Economics, where he served as Deputy Technical Director from 1972-73 and Director from 1973-79.  In 1980, Dr. Langoni became the youngest President of the Central Bank of Brazil, a post he held until 1983.  He was praised for bringing greater economic stability to Brazil and for protecting the institutional role that central banks play in all economies.

Dr. Langoni had been hospitalized in Rio de Janeiro since November 2020 and passed away due to complications from COVID-19.  He is survived by his wife, Cristiana Dutra, his two children, and four grandchildren.
