Once again, history repeats itself and the BMG group along with its president Ricardo Guimarães have stepped back into the limelight.
April 18 which was a memorable date for many, as the president of BMG, Ricardo Guimarães was awarded the honor of Merit by the City Hall. This accolade was given to Ricardo Guimarães on the recommendation of Councilman Daniel Nepomuceno from PSB and president of the house, Léo Burguês de Castro from PSDB.
Shortly after the opening of the meeting, Daniel Nepomuceno took the initiative to lead the congregation and state that it was an honor to present the “Honour of Merit” to Ricardo Guimarães and to pay homage at an individual level to the well-wisher of the sports sector.
