In spring, we held several events at our office in Bogotá, which was opened last year, to further expand our activities in South and Central America. Since then, our partner in Bogota, Dr. Christian Bühring-Uhle, has quickly succeeded in strengthening the team:
Ricardo Sala moved from Spencer Stuart to join us in the summer of this year and will in future advise our South and Central American clients as a partner. Ricardo, who was Colombia’s ambassador in Bonn in the 1990s, has many years of experience as a CEO and supervisory board member in family businesses, among others. At Spencer Stuart, he was responsible for the industrial and board practices in Colombia and other Latin American countries.
With Nelson Echeverría, the former CEO of BASF Colombia, Venezuela & Ecuador, we have gained an outstandingly well networked Senior Advisor for building client relationships. He will provide us with close advisory support and, on a case-by-case basis, will also work on challenging consulting projects. Nelson has decades of experience in international top management and is involved in various supervisory boards, advisory boards and foundations. Together with Christian Bühring-Uhle, he is a member of the Executive Committee of the German-Colombian Chamber of Commerce.
