André Correia-Merillat

Director of Royalty Reporting and Accounting

"MTI has given me a home away from home. There is a feeling of comradery among the employees that makes it more than a job - it's a fun, exciting place to come to work."

André Correia-Merillat traded the beaches of Rio de Janeiro for the bright lights and bustle of New York City in 1992. Before moving to the United States, André was a Head Auditor for an international accounting firm. Arriving in the U.S, his work afforded him the opportunity to meet many celebrities, including Princess Diana, JFK jr and Luciano Pavarotti.

He started as a temporary employee at MTI in 1999 and this led to his full-time employment in the Finance Department shortly thereafter. At MTI, he is currently the Director of Royalties Reporting & Accounting.

True to his Ipanema roots, André has a home near the beach, within commuting distance to the city. His twenty years at MTI have flown by - and although he may have left Rio decades ago, he retains his "adorable Brazilian accent!" Among his favorite musicals are Passion,Ragtime, Company, Xanadu, and, (of course!), Copacabana.
