Located in Cotia, São Paulo, Woodbridge Brazil is headed up by James Locke, an experienced international business executive and long-time resident of Brazil.

"We are very excited about Woodbridge's expansion into Brazil," said Robert Koenig, president of Woodbridge Group. "This furthers our ability to give our clients global reach, whether they are looking for add-on acquisitions or trying to find the right buyer." According to Koenig, Woodbridge will execute the same marketing-intensive search strategies in Brazil that has been successfully employed in the U.S. and Europe via the firm's Woodbridge Europe office.

Among Brazil's top industries are: automotive, petrochemicals, cement and construction, aircraft, textiles, food and beverages, mining, pharmaceuticals, consumer durables and tourism. In agriculture alone, the country is a major producer of coffee, soybeans, wheat, rice, corn, and sugar cane, cocoa, citrus and beef.

"For buyers, our unique marketing approach is the best way to identify qualified acquisition candidates that are not on the market, which gives our clients multiple deal options and an exclusive introduction to potential sellers in Brazil," said Koenig.
