Luis Garcia, president and CEO of Adonel Concrete, has been appointed to the board of the Florida Atlantic Building Association (FABA), a leading regional building organization that represents key issues impacting the building industry in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
The FABA was formed in 2012 as the result of the consolidation of the Builders Association of South Florida and the Gold Coast Builders Association, two prominent builder groups. The new organization offers more than 100 years of combined service to the building trade association.
“Luis is a welcome addition to our board,” said Truly Burton, executive vice president of the Florida Atlantic Building Association. “His knowledge of the building industry together with his on-going commitment to the South Florida community is a tremendously valuable asset for our organization as we strive to fulfill the American Dream of affordable home ownership for everyone.”
Luis Garcia founded Adonel Concrete in 1984 and has guided the company to where it is today, the largest privately-owned concrete company in South Florida.
In 2011, Garcia was named a distinguished alumnus of Miami Dade College and inducted into the college’s prestigious Hall of Fame. He has also been named the Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur of the Year” in the southeast region and Businessman of the Year by the Nicaraguan American Chamber of Commerce in Miami.
Adonel currently has a total of 12 concrete plants: four in Miami-Dade County, one in Broward County, two in Palm Beach County, two in St. Lucie County and three in Haiti. It has more than 210 employees and a fleet of 120 trucks.
