FOUNDING PARTNER, CHAIRMAN
Number one fan of my wife and four grown-up kids. Music lover and art collector. Free thinker. Unapologetically contrarian. I’m the only team member with grey hair, so I pretend to be the wisest. Focused on finding #teams of outliers. I have gone full-circle: from banking @BNP, media @PRISA and PE partner @APAX, to business angel and board member @LaNeveraRoja, @Másmóvil @bodaclick @infojobs. MBA @IESE. But have lived pretty much everywhere.
