ALMEIDA JUNIOR is the Leader in SC – Leaders of Brazil 2020 Award

The award is the national recognition of the talent, competence, and commitment of companies with active management in the country for a better and more competitive Brazil.


ALMEIDA JUNIOR is the winner of the Leaders of Brazil 2020 Award in Santa Catarina. The announcement of the award carried out by LIDE Unidades, was made last night (12/14), in an online ceremony that brought together more than 300 businessmen from all over Brazil. The award is considered the greatest national recognition of the talent, competence and commitment of companies and executives operating in the country, for a better and more competitive Brazil. In the 2020 edition, the award is even more relevant due to the atypical scenario that the world has faced.

ALMEIDA JUNIOR was chosen in Santa Catarina for the launch of a bold and winning project: AJPLACE, the group’s marketplace that brings together tenants from the company’s six shopping malls, in addition to other national and international brands not yet present in SC.

In seven months, the company created and launched AJPLACE, an innovative platform for a marketplace that is already born large and has been preparing to consolidate itself as the largest online platform for shopping mall tenants in southern Brazil.

“Receiving this award in such a challenging year for any company in the world has an even more special meaning. The recognition consolidates our belief that innovation is essential and motivates us to continue this path of doing beyond the obvious”, says the company’s CEO, Jaimes Almeida Junior, who received the award.

Only 16 companies were awarded throughout the country. The companies were chosen by the Management Committee of each LIDE unit, in a remote voting. The committee is composed of business leaders from different sectors of the Brazilian economy.

“The design and launch of the AJPLACE project represent a revolution in Brazilian retail, with impact and value creation for millions of consumers. Certainly, this is one of the main and most relevant business highlights in the country in 2020 and represents the workforce, innovation, and pioneering spirit of the entire Santa Catarina market”, says Delton Batista, president of LIDE SC.
