The CAOA Group is one of the most significant players in the Brazilian car manufacturing industry. Recently, the company was invited to the 52nd Car of the Year award’s night, an annual recognition night created for those who are involved in the automobile industry. The chairman of the company, Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade, was awarded the Executive of the Year award. He was thankful for the recognition that he received and stated that his company will continue to manufacture quality vehicles under the Hyundai and Chery brand. He has been managing the company since 1979, and the company will be celebrating its 40th anniversary next year.
One of the reasons why Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade became an influential figure in the car manufacturing industry is because of his ability to transform his plant located in Anapolis. It was first built to accommodate the creation of top quality vehicles from Chery and Hyundai, and he was able to sell it effectively to the Brazilian public, increasing the company’s sales and resulting to further growth. Since then, the CAOA Group continued manufacturing different Chery models, appealing greatly to the Brazilian public. Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade stated that the success of his company can also be attributed to the huge number of people who have been following his business for years, becoming his regular clients. For four decades, Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade has been working closely with his clients, providing them with world-class service that allowed them to stay.
Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade opened his car business in 1979, after receiving a defunct dealership as a payment for his Ford Landau that never arrived. At first, he had difficulties managing the company because of the lack of knowledge about how car businesses work. However, Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade did not surrender easily, and he used his spare time knowing how he could effectively run his business. Close family and friends helped him out, and after years of managing the business, experience taught him some of the most effective approaches that he has to consider to continue the growth of his company.
