Family business award winner Brazil

In February 2020, Energisa Group celebrated its 115th year, marking a journey of remarkable growth that has seen it become the 5th largest energy distribution group in the country, with 20,500 employees and 7.8 million customers.

Throughout this period, the family has maintained the founders’ values of “Safety, People, Innovation, Commitment, Results and Customers.” They are focused on becoming an energy platform to meet all profiles, from consumers within the current energy distribution model to the most personalized consumers.

Ricardo, the CEO, says, “If I had to choose one word to define the legacy we want to leave, it would be ‘comfort.’ I want our customer's experience with Energisa to be comfortable. I want them to be surprised at how we work hard to earn their trust. This is the challenge for companies in general, and we want to be our customers’ choice.”

Congratulations to all winners

We are proud to feature the stories and recognize the outstanding achievements of these remarkable women and men in pursuing their ambitions and building a long-term, intergenerational legacy. Read more about this year’s winners in the EY Family Business Award of Excellence brochure.
