“Ricardo and his team in Brazil were invaluable as we assessed our alternatives to enter the market. Their analysis of the market opportunity, risks, competition and viable local operators/partners was excellent. Their local market relationships and network helped us in a very short period of time to meet all the viable prospects we could have considered. Wendy’s eventually entered the market and the business has done very well - the initial work done by LatinCo was a great foundation”

Former VP of International Strategy and Development
The Wendy's Company


“The Latin American Company advised the Constâncio Vieira group by designing strategic alternatives, evaluating the business and later coordinating the whole sale process of the group's beverage division, whose main business is bottling for Coca-Cola. Under the leadership of Ricardo Carvalho, LatinCo executed the entire sale process, from identifying the candidate, commercial negotiations, and intermediating for the buyers and sellers until the conclusion of the transaction, which was successful. Latin has exceeded our expectations and, without a doubt, we would refer them.”

"The Latin American Company team went beyond what I've seen from other consulting firms with which I've worked. They actually acted as a part of the UPS Logistics Technologies team. Their knowledge and experience in the region helped us develop the proper sales presentations to effectively communicate our value proposition. They helped us evaluate partners and negotiate contract terms that were good for all parties. And, their close relationships with influential business leaders in the region gave us immediate credibility and helped us develop successful business partners and customers.

As we started working with our new partners, the Latin American Company stayed right along with us to provide management and continual motivation: ensuring our success. With their help, we were able to sign up good business partners in all the major market areas within the region. We also signed up one of our company's largest multinational customers. It is a pleasure working with The Latin American Company. They are in it with us for the long term and make sure that our entry into the Latin American market is a success for our company, our business partners and our customers."
