October 2016

Together with the German-Colombian Chamber of Commerce and with the support of the regional office of the IFC/World Bank Group and the CESA, a renowned local business school focusing on privately enterprises, AvS – International Trusted Advisors organised the first “German-Colombian Congress on Family Business” in September. 60 representatives of Colombian entrepreneurial families discussed strategies of family and company governance with our three regional Advisors, and experts from the sponsoring organisations.

Christian Bühring-Uhle, Head of our Latin American practice, was appointed Honorary Representative of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (“Hamburg Ambassador”) in Bogotá by the Lord Mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz.

Endeavor, the leading global high-impact entrepreneurship movement, also selected Christian Bühring-Uhle for its pool of distinguished Mentors, who serve as sparring partners to a highly selective group of high-potential young entrepreneurs.
