Does Petrobras need a CEO?

The question seems mediocre and/or inopportune. The most common perception, of course, points to a distinctly affirmative answer!

But the history of recent years shows that the CEO of Petrobras - gigantic public company controlled by the Brazilian Federal Government, is systemically changed. The last one remained in the position for about 1 month.

This is despite each of them having very robust CVs, with extensive experience in the sector, having held command positions in important companies or institutions and still having undergone rigorous scrutiny.

If they are exchanged without ceremony and even praising their management (at the time of the transfer ceremony) the signal that remains is : this position should be extinguished!!!!
