Greetings, Fuqua community! I'm Adriano Mercadante, bringing a slice of Brazil to this fantastic community. Originally from Belo Horizonte, I joined Tracbel, a major automotive dealership, before making the move to bustling Sao Paulo in 2018. Over my 12 years at Tracbel, I wore many hats, leading diverse roles and eventually managing the sales team for the largest region.

Now, at Fuqua, I'm here with my wife, Flavia, and our bulldog, Chico, soaking up every moment. My motto? Live each day like it's the last.

Fuqua is my playground—I'm exploring new sports, discovering local gems, engaging in the school’s clubs, and building lasting friendships. Fuqua life is an everyday adventure!
