FOUNDING PARTNER | CEO
Alberto conceived Olivia over 10 years ago. His mission was to create a company with the soul of a rock band and the synchronized sound of a classical orchestra. Today, he can proudly say he achieved his goal.
With over 25 years of executive experience in the Oil, Gas, and Technology sectors, Alberto has faced great challenges during his career. Thanks to his boundless energy and sharp instincts, he has always been up to the task. He studied Accounting at the University of Buenos Aires and earned a postgraduate degree in business management from the IAE Business School. He’s also a certified coach for Newfield Consulting. In his spare time, he loves team sports, rowing, reading, and listening to heavy metal albums.
