He is professor of business administration at the Universidad Politénica de Cataluña, professor of corporate policy at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (Spain) and visiting professor for the senior management programmes at INCAE (Costa Rica), IESA (Venezuela) and the TEC of Monterrey (Mexico). His main concerns are “the heads of organizations”, a field that he studies from various angles. In his own words: “I believe that directors need to read the press and be informed to know their environment, and I also analyze how to strengthen senior management teams. Currently, I am doing an in-depth analysis of the role of the advisory council as a complement to the board of directors.”

He has a Law Degree from the Universidad de Barcelona and his expertise lies in the strategic management of family owned businesses, a subject that he teaches on the Family Business Programme that the Instituto de Empresa has in collaboration with the Tecnológico de Monterrey, and on the forums organized by the Family Business Institute (Instituto de Empresa Familiar).
