When did your work at AFRY allow you to contribute towards Making Future?​

I guess it’s all the time. Whether it’s improving a company’s performance, analysing new investments or even recommending strategy, all of these projects are about making future.

In what area are you passionate about making a difference?​

One of the areas I like to work on the most is analysing investment opportunities in developing countries. It’s great to participate in initiatives that generate benefits for a broader set of stakeholders.

Besides your job. Tell us more about yourself. What do you like outside your work?​

I love mountains, cycling in the morning, and spending time with my family and friends, especially over a pint of beer. Finally, as a good ‘Gaucho’, I love drinking chimarrao.​
