Features Latin America

Lucia Paolini – FOX Networks Group Latin America

Homer Simpson once said, “Well, I’m not one for taking new jobs on a whim. But as we say in the snow plow business, ‘I’m your astronaut.’” Homer may be a walking contradiction, and a cartoon to boot, but he hit the nail on the head when it comes to not taking a new job […]

Jose Pedro Urrutia – Anglo American

When you think of happy, carefree professionals, lawyers might be the last people who come to mind. Spend any time in Jose Pedro Urrutia’s legal department, however, and you’ll quickly realize it is possible for lawyers to love what they do—and where they work. He’s even found a word for his approach, inspired by a […]

Hector Garcia – Bayer (Andean)

Say you’re a general counsel for a major corporation. A modest acquisition—something in the seven-to-nine-figure range—might take up a few months of bandwidth, not including the integration process that can stretch on for years. If the company’s really in growth mode, maybe you handle more than one. And Bayer’s recent $62.5 billion acquisition of agribusiness […]

Daniel Pérez-Umaña – BAC Credomatic

A job offer like this comes around maybe once in a career—if you’re lucky.

It is aiming for a smoke-free future by promoting products such as e-cigarettes and technology that heats but doesn’t burn. That makes it an exciting time for Adelaida Adames, […]

Francisco Pinilla – Uber (Latin America)

For most of us, using Uber—an app that literally puts transportation at your fingertips—represents the pinnacle of modern convenience. Francisco Pinilla doesn’t think that superlative goes nearly far enough. As legal director and head of legal transactions for the company’s Latin America operations (LATAM for short), Pinilla understands how Uber’s model and methods have not […]

Lilia Pous – VivaAerobus

Family and friends thought she’d landed her dream job, and early on Lilia Pous might’ve agreed. She’d just been named department chief at Mexico’s Institute for the Protection of Bank Savings, a prestigious appointment that entailed working with high-level government data. But to hear her tell it, layers of bureaucratic red tape quickly diminished the […]

Alvaro Martinez – Sodexo (Latin America)

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve met a CEO or two. The same goes for general counsels. Even if you haven’t met any, you know about them. Seeing someone wear both hats at once? You might’ve just found a corporate unicorn. Only, you needn’t scour some ethereal forest to find Alvaro Martinez. He’s out […]

Jaime Orvañanos – WeWork

Whenever Jaime Orvañanos visits one of his company’s far-flung offices, he always takes time to look around. Throughout the space, he sees architects and graphic designers, writers and engineers. Some work collaboratively; others on their own. The verve seems contagious; the air alive with ideas. Then it’s off to the next city, to Buenos Aires […]

Nicolás Villarreal – Grupo Proeza

You can learn a lot about someone from their LinkedIn page. Not just their core strengths and various alma maters, but how their career path foreshadows where they might be headed next. When one scans Nicolás Villarreal’s page, two things are immediately clear: He sees no need for a profile picture, and the three logos […]
