Juan Manuel Camposano Jamett – Red de Clinicas Regionales

Its facilities stretching from one end of Chile to the other, Red de Clinicas Regionales has been responding to that country’s health care needs since its 2003 founding. Emergency rooms, critical patient units, surgical pavilions, specialty services—the network has long had all of those amenities in place. But for around 15 years it operated without […]

Luis Alberto Cárdenas Diaz – Banco Sabadell

When it came to helping the new kid on the block get a start, Luis Alberto Cárdenas was there. Cárdenas, Banco Sabadell’s legal director for its Mexican operations, was also the first hire for the bank’s legal department when it started in 2015. Since then, his team has grown to 13, but he clearly recalls […]

Fabiola Ferro – Varian Medical Systems

Waking up to address a court case in Colombia; picking up the phone to discuss legal concerns in Argentina after morning coffee; touching base with a client in Paraguay at lunchtime; and catching up with the sales department in Palo Alto, California, by close of business. Such is a pretty diversified—yet typical—day for Fabiola Ferro […]

Tanya Quiñonez – Honeywell Building Technologies

When Tanya Quiñonez was asked to lend legal support to one of Honeywell Building Technologies’ (HBT’s) most ambitious projects to date—an initiative that involved multiple stakeholders across the company—she jumped at the chance. There was, however, an important catch: she wouldn’t just be providing guidance on contracts and compliance; rather, it was her job to […]

Patricia Diniz – JDA Software Inc.

With a territory covering two continents and more than a dozen countries, Patricia Diniz’s workload may seem never ending and its pace frequently frantic. Yet as JDA Software Inc.’s regional senior counsel for Latin America, Diniz not only welcomes the demands and ever-changing priorities—she welcomes them as a sign the tech industry is becoming more […]

Rafael Aysanoa – Corporación Primax

In 2013, in a rural mountain village in northern Peru, a tanker truck carrying oil tipped over while trying to navigate a rough patch of road. Spilling 9,000 gallons of oil across the surrounding landscape, the accident tainted the soil and destroyed the crops of 30 local farms. What could have been a public relations […]

Iván Diego Durontó — AES Argentina

Everyone loves a good story about making an impossible situation possible—but no one more so than Iván Diego Durontó of AES Argentina. With only a month to complete a monstrous financial task—the likes of which the Buenos Aires-based energy company had never before completed—Durontó and his team actively collaborated with an AES Argentina multidisciplinary team […]

Viviana Alvarado – Sura Asset Management Mexico

In the 70 years Grupo Sura has been entrusted with other people’s money, it has prided itself on investing for the future and ethically insuring clients. Now, in the wake of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s sweeping anticorruption measures aimed at cleaning up the way government and corporations do business, Sura’s Mexico City-based subsidiary […]

Alejandro Capitto Velasco – Prudential Financial

As an in-house counsel, Alejandro Capitto Velasco knows his role is to add his legal expertise to a company’s bottom line by understanding the business and the legal environment it inhabits. How a company does its business means just as much to him, a lesson he looks to impart every day and in every way […]

Fabian Rivero – Megalabs

There were just three steps to the relentless business expansion underway at Megalabs in Latin America. Companies are vetted (1), purchased (2) and integrated (3). There may be other steps, too, but overall it’s a simple idea—hardly the first of its kind. It stands out at Megalabs only because of its swift execution. In the […]
