Agustin Caceres of Le Group Industries is
about as well-traveled as it gets, which is
why he’s the perfect guy to help businesses
realize their international aspirations.

love selling worldwide,” says Agustin
Caceres of Le Group Industries, a
company that assists manufacturers with
expanding their businesses beyond their
national borders. Le Group Industries,
which was established in Miami by Caceres, provides
marketing, certification, accounting, logistics and
international finance services to companies producing
everything from sugar to bikinis. “We do anything related
to international business, besides producing,” he says.
It’s a job he’s exceptionally well-qualified for. The
Argentinean-born businessman was raised in Brazil, and
got his business education in both countries as well as
in Germany. Since then, he’s managed to see the better
part of the world, traveling throughout the U.S. and
South America as well as to Africa, China and other
exotic locales. “I speak English, Spanish, Italian and
Portuguese,” Caceres admits. “And a little French and
Caceres has always been fascinated by the world of
international business, working in it through various
capacities for years until starting Le Group Industries
through a sponsorship program offered by the Brazilian
Trade & Investment Agency. Caceres quickly formed
partnerships with manufacturers in Brazil who were eager
to break into new markets in the U.S. and further afield,
but he didn’t have the expertise needed to negotiate the
tricky waters of import/export laws and finance. However,
he’s not one to work with just anyone.
“All our supplies are selected based on their honesty,
human rights policies and cost-effective structure,” he
says. And when he says “human rights”, he doesn’t just
mean the way the factories treat their laborers — though
that’s definitely part of the picture. It’s also about the
products themselves. Caceres believes that the end
consumer has a “right” to high-quality goods, and puts
his business philosophy where his mouth is.
Currently, Le Group Industries markets Brazilian long-
grain rice and sugar, as well as a canned version of the
country’s signature caipirinha cocktail. Other products
under development include bikinis and leather goods.
You’d think with all that traveling, the last thing Caceres
would want to do in his free time is hit the road — but you’d
be wrong. The entrepreneur is an incorrigible tourist, and
loves documenting his journeys by camera. Those of us
stuck at home can enjoy the fun vicariously through his
postings on the travel website Territorios.com.br.
At the end of the day, he’s happy to be doing business
through his offices in Miami. “This city is a tremendous
window to the world,” he says. And he’d know.
