Antonio Carlos de Oliveira is the new executive president of ABRAFATI
Effective as of April 1st, Antonio Carlos de Oliveira assumes the Executive Presidency of ABRAFATI. His appointment comes as a result of a diligent succession process conducted over the past 12 months to ensure continued development in the industry, including the programs and initiatives carried out by ABRAFATI.
Dilson Ferreira played a key role in that transition process and will continue lending his expertise to ABRAFATI, in his capacity as special advisor to the Presidency and Advisory Board member. “As Dilson has led several major projects aimed at developing the coatings supply chain and made ABRAFATI a point of reference in various respects over his past 18 years of service as executive president, the knowledge and experience he possesses are extremely valuable for us to continue on this upward trajectory”, says Freddy Carrillo, Chairman of the Directive Board.
Antonio Carlos has a track record of dedication to both the industry and ABRAFATI, having chaired its Management Board, and significant accomplishments at DuPont Performance Coatings and Axalta Brazil, where he held leadership positions and headed challenging projects. “Accordingly, he has all that it takes to do an excellent job, which will be bolstered by the assistance he’ll be getting from ABRAFATI’s skilled team and by the values that guide the Association’s activity. We’d like to thank Dilson for his enormous contribution, and we wish Antonio Carlos success is his new role”, adds Carrillo.
