America is renowned as a land of opportunity, and its most successful citizens know how to seize that opportunity and make it their own. We take a look at D4U USA Group, the brainchild of Wagner Pontes, to see how his astonishing leadership has allowed the many organizations in his care to flourish and grow to new heights of success.
Wagner Pontes has proven over the years more than capable of getting involved in the way that American industry operates. His organization, D4U USA Group, has taken major roles in the operations of many companies, controlling their direction of travel not just in one sector, but across the breadth of different industries in the country. D4U USA Group is involved with businesses that work in immigration services, real estate, entertainment park and beverage distribution, and their influence continues to grow.
The team’s astonishing path to growth matches Mr. Pontes. His visionary ambition has inspired those who work for him to reach above and beyond where many would stop, leading businesses to incredible heights of success. For over 18 years, Mr. Pontes has been involved in entrepreneurial activities, so it’s little wonder that this has led to such an amazing triumph. In many ways, he has built an empire in sectors where he might not be an expert, but his skill and ability to lead allows him to find people who can deliver to his exceptionally high standards.
D4U USA Group is comprised of various units, each with its own specialties and unique attributes. They all work together, building towards the greater ambition of Mr. Pontes and his business enterprises. D4U Immigration Services, for example, is one of the largest immigration services firms in the country, making the process of immigration as straight forward as possible for those who want the opportunity to thrive in the USA. The team are responsible of the processing of dozens of green cards every month, using their specialist skills to ensure as many approvals as possible.
Needelss to say, this part of the business is one of the most success, with more than 2,000 beneficiaries served to date, and more than 98% of applications approved. In 2020, the company’s revenue reached over $8 million, and is projected to exceed $12 million in 2021. The company has six units from which it operates. Three are located in the USA, namely in the state of Florida and in the political heart of the country, Washington DC. The last three are located in Brazil, in the states of São Paulo, Goiás and Paraíba, offering vital support to people there.
D4U USA Group has also entered the world of entertainment, with an entertainment complex being one of Mr. Pontes’ more recent endeavors. Named Piquet Entertainment & Race Park, this 20 acre park can be found in Florida, and was built in partnership with the Piquet family of the three-time Formula 1 world champion Nelson Piquet and the Formula E world champion and former Nascar and Formula 1 driver Nelson Piquet Júnior. This racing connection has inspired many of the park’s selling points, including the largest go-kart track in the state of Florida.
Piquet Entertainment & Race Park is also home to eight paintball fields, mini golf, a climbing wall and a collection of motor racing relics, such as F1, FE cars and the 500-miles winning car from the Indy formula. With over $13 million dollars of investment, the development was inaugurated in December 2020 and has already proven incredibly popular. Key to this was the family connected and access to various historic icons of motorsports.
One of the most recent acquisitions was Okkla Reality, a specialist in the purchase and sale of real estate in the state of Florida. Despite being a relatively new addition to the market, only a few months, it has developed more than $4,5 million in business. It also showcases the intuition of Mr. Pontes’ business decisions. While very different to the racing park and the immigration services, it has rapidly proven not only to be a good investment, but a natural addition to the businesses already under the control of D4U USA Group.
Mr. Pontes has recently expanded into other new sectors of the market too. The alcoholic beverages segment is one which holds enormous potential that remains untapped. As such, the team are involved in the “Drink B” brand, launched in the US. This brand has focuses on flavored Brazilian Rum, and is already present in the best restaurants in South Florida. As a brand, it has already made a name for itself in Miami, as well as being a sponsor of some of the biggest musical events of the Brazilian community in Florida.
These close connections with a local community have opened exciting new doors to Mr. Pontes, who has actually been invited to chair LIDE Miami as a result of these successful projects. LIDE is a group of business leaders with more than 3000 members and operating groups in 15 countries. The aim of these groups is to create a place for networking amongst some of the biggest and best regional investors and entrepreneurs. It’s the ideal location for Mr. Pontes to thrive, not only allowing him to keep his finger on the economic pulse of the region, but also to share his not inconsiderable expertise with others in Miami and beyond.
When looking at the career of Mr. Pontes, it is one which covers an exciting range of diverse interests. From law to entertainment, from real estate to beverages, the team at D4U USA Group are involved in many different aspects of business. What is clear, however, is that each is approached with the same entrepreneurial mindset and desire to succeed. All share the unique attitude which has empowered his teams to make the best possible decisions for the growth of the group as a whole – and the growth has been truly astounding. We celebrate Mr. Pontes’ tremendous success and look forward to seeing just where he takes his incredibly diverse portfolio of businesses next.
