German - Colombian, born in 1976 in Bogotá, Colombia, lived 8 years in the former German Democratic Republic, 22 years in Colombia and until now 11 years in the Federal Republic of Germany. Today I live with my family in Berlin, Germany. I'm a Professional in Finances and International Relations from the Universidad Externado de Colombia with a Master in Business Administration (MBA) with emphasis on Logistics Management from the Kühne School of Logistics and Management (today Kühne Logistics University) and the Technische Universität Hamburg Harburg (TUHH). I have 15 years professional experience, from which 9,5 years have been in Germany and 5,5 years in Colombia. I worked for 6,5 years as employee in the public sector, 5,5 years as employee in the private sector and 3 years as entrepreneur. My focus has been mainly on three topics: internationalisation (8,5 years), process optimisation and sustainability (5 years) and entrepreneurship, developing and running small businesses (3 years). During my time in Colombia and Germany I had the opportunity to work with partners and clients in Peru, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Brasil, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and the Netherlands.
