During the seven years when I was the Deputy-Consul in Toronto and Brazil’s Trade Commissioner to Canada (2006-2013), I had multiple opportunities to interact professionally with Marcelo Andrade. Initially in a senior position at a leading Canadian bank, then at his company Lucalex, Marcelo was always a trustworthy, upright, active individual, with deep knowledge of both the Canadian and the Brazilian markets. He constantly displayed the ability to find realistic solutions, all with great interpersonal skills. Doing business with Marcelo Andrade or with his help is synonym of peace of mind and success.
I came to know Marcelo when he was the Senior Account Manager overseeing all of our accounts and various business dealings with our Canadian bank. I have been pleased to maintain that relationship after Marcelo started Lucalex. During our business dealings, it was clear to me that Marcelo was genuinely committed to providing fair, creative solutions and focused on adding true value to our company. Any foreign business looking at this part of the world would certainly benefit from aligning with Marcelo’s extensive business network and his excellent knowledge of the Canadian business environment.
Marcelo was a key part of our leadership team before we lost him to Canada. He was instrumental in identifying opportunities and implementing changes that brought very positive impact to the organization. His focus on results and strong negotiation skills allow him to find creative win-win solutions in the most challenging situations. We were truly sorry to see him leaving for Canada 17 years ago, but never lost contact and we’re happy that he is successful in his new country.
