Andrea Napolitano has stepped down as CEO of Brazilian seafood canner Gomes da Costa after just 17 months in the role, a company spokesperson confirmed.

Napolitano, who made a splash as the first woman to head a Brazilian canning company, has joined Arca+, a non-profit startup, which uses technology as a means to increase social inclusion and to transform the lives of people living in low-income in underprivileged communities and slums.
