QuintoAndar Announces Ana Pellegrini as New VP of Legal and Head of Diversity and Inclusion
In February 2021, QuintoAndar announced Ana Pellegrini as its new Legal Vice President and head of its Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.
In late February, digital real estate platform QuintoAndar announced renowned technology attorney Ana Pellegrini as its new Legal Vice-President. With extensive experience in global operations, she arrives to captain the company’s legal, compliance and privacy departments. Ms. Pellegrini will also be responsible for assembling a government relations team and take the lead of its Diversity & Inclusion initiatives.
Ms. Pellegrini brings to her new challenge over 20 years of experience in the legal market, having previously worked as the legal director and head of diversity and inclusion for Latin America at Uber. Ms. Pellegrini has also worked at renowned law firms such as Stocche Forbes Advogados and Ulhôa Canto, Rezende e Guerra Advogados for almost 15 years, assisting major companies from the telecommunications, technology, power and oil sectors with complex regulatory, contractual and corporate issues.

"The QuintoAndar model is legally disruptive. The regulations of the real estate sector, when edited, didn’t predict that technology could be used to mediate and facilitate housing relations" stated Ana Pellegrini. "I want to work to overcome these legal challenges and ensure these regulations are an obstacle or an impediment to all the improvements which QuintoAndar can bring to the real estate market and to society.", she added.
