Carlos is a long experienced executive with recognized successes in many business fields. Working with him is always a pleasure for his enthusiasm, buisiness savvy and honesty. I have worked with Carlos as a partner, in Intelectium, and as a service provider (in Metro and Mediasat) and hope I will continue having the chance of making business together in the future.
Avocat honoraire. Semi-retired - consultant international business and law firm management
Carlos manages legal work the way it should be managed, pro-actively in providing background understanding, rapid and constructive feedback, and a realistic overall strategic view. Because of his background and experience he has no difficulty understanding even complex legal implications of difficult situations. This makes for efficient use of legal costs and management time.
Carlos is definitely the best manager I have ever experienced. Strong leadership, a charismatic personality and multi-cultural skills enable him to run multinational companies with great success. Very good strategic vision combined with result - orientation never let him miss out on a detail. Always finds the right mix between giving objectives, motivating and asking for results. Excellent and trustworthy comunicator both with clients and employees. Let me quote our most important business partner in Italy: "Carlos ha una marcia in più".

I came to know Carlos when I was employed by Metro International S.A. as managing director and publisher of the company’s New York City free daily newspaper. Carlos was responsible for this worldwide company’s publishing operations in Southern Europe and South America, reporting directly to the CEO. He developed a solid reputation as a hands-on manager who ran some of the company’s most profitable operations and was instrumental in its rapid growth throughout the world. In addition to his significant business skills, he is a most charming gentleman.
