I am lucky to have developed my professional career working for myself as well as for other people:

This was my first job after graduating from IESE. Formerly I had worked as a "controller" at EXPEDITORS INTL. and as a senior consultant at ANDERSEN CONSULTING.

It has a turnover of more than 50 million Euros per year and more than 50 people as staff. I was a member of the management committee of HAVAS Media Spain and co-directed HAVAS Entertainment at a global level.

We developed projects such as "CAMARON, La película" (winner of 3 Goya Spanish Film Awards), Y TU QUIEN ERES (directed by Antonio Mercero), Football CRACKS / Soccer ACES (with the participation of Zidane and Francescoli, it had more than 120 million viewers in each edition - 2010 and 2011 -, was broadcast on TV in 23 countries, followed on-line from 142 countries, the most watched YouTube channel in the world, etc.), SURF CRACKS / SURF ACES, several entertainment formats, discs, concerts, etc.
