Thiago Davila, CEO, US Aluminum Services, No. 253

From his first trip to the U.S. at the age of 16, Thiago Davila knew he wanted to immigrate to the country. As soon as he turned 18, Davila left his small hometown near Sao Paulo, Brazil and started college at The University of Central Florida. During that time, he began working as an installer for aluminum contractors, which ultimately led him to start US Aluminum Services, his own installation business at the age of 22.
