Operations & Technology

With an entrepreneurial soul and a social and teaching vocation, his career has been developed around four areas of interest, in which he is looking for every day to continue learning: business, data, people development, and social impact.

His first fifteen years of professional life were dedicated to starting several businesses up, mainly in the telecommunications services and maintenance services sectors, where the optimization of resources and operations were necessary to achieve profitability, being the Data Analysis his main tool for decision making.

In 2006, he began to balance his professional activity and his vocation, collaborating in the professional development of people from the knowledge gathered throughout his professional experience as an entrepreneur and executive director.

Aware that after data analysis and decision making, for the implementation of decisions, it is vitally important to manage people, he deepened in this area during the next few years, working on the development of people as an executive coach and human resources management skills professor.

He combines his coaching and teaching activity with direct contact with the company as an advisor of management boards, analyzing data and helping decision-making and its implementation keeping the human factor in mind.

He is connected to the social projects and impact investment at CREAS Foundation, where he launched a small Social Seed Capital fund.
