Opinion of Amec – The Emperor of All Evils
Scene 1: 1 Blue Horseshoe loves Blue Star Airlines.

Scene 2: The handcuffed Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen) is taken by policemen through the trading room at Jackson Steinme´s brokerage house.

The scenes above are from the movie Wall Street (1987). Their emotional impact is undeniable. The "good contravener" leaves the office burst into tears, probably thinking that his dreams and professional career have just started to dismantle as a result of his illegal acts. His colleagues show dismay and also the perception that, in fact, the crime does not pay.
Changes to Amec´s Executive Board
After seven years directly involved in Amec´s activities, our founder Luis Stuhlberger requested to leave the entity´s Executive Board. In his resignation speech, Luis highlighted he will continue committed to Amec as a member of the institution´s Advisory Board. The decision opens room to an important renewal in the body responsible for the association´s daily activities.
