Rodrigo Terpins started his career in business shortly after graduating from Saint Hilaire College, where he earned a degree in Business Management. He obtained leadership positions in companies like Lojas Marisa, which is a highly popular clothing store for women that has a presence in many shopping centers in the country of Brazil. He held his position as President of the store from 1991 to 2006, then he went on to start his own company called T5 Participacoes, where he has been the Senior Director since 2008.
In addition to being an effective businessman, Rodrigo Terpins is also a very skilled race car driver who competes in his country’s largest annual off-road driving event known as the Sertoes Rally. Having developed an interest in cars and the sport of rally driving at a young age, he later realized his dream to be a part of this big event. Along with his brother Michel, and their other two crew members, he formed the Bull Sertoes driving team in 2015, and they went on to become one of the most award-winning teams in the competition.

Because of all of their wins, The Bull Sertoes team is considered to be one of the top speed racing squads in Brazil. The vehicle the drivers use to help them maneuver through the rough terrain of the 7-stage, 2600 kilometer contest is called T-Rex. The machine was designed by their sponsor MEM Motorsport, who added a V8 engine to it to give it more power and intensity, which is useful when trying to speed through rocky or mountainous roads. The team won the difficult and exhausting 2nd stage of the event’s 24th edition, thanks to T-Rex.
Rodrigo Terpins was introduced to the sports world years ago when his father, Jack Terpins, played professional basketball. After his father’s athletic career was over, he went on to become an executive at a real estate investment company. Now, by displaying their exceptional driving skills on the racetrack, Rodrigo and his brother Michel are carrying on the legacy that their father and some of their other male relatives who were sportsmen instilled in them in their youth.
