While contemplating and planning for retirement after 25 years as an executive in the financial and technology industries, he found his true passion was, and had always been, in helping people and teams develop and be more efficient.

Alberto is an Executive Coach, Team Coach and Management Consultant working from Panama City, Panama, and serving clients throughout Central and South America.  He has coached executives at multiple levels and sectors ranging from banking to technology, and from Education to Pro Bono work at NGOs supporting people and communities at risk in Panama.  As a founding member of the International Coaching Federation chapter in Panama, and as its current Secretary of the Board of Directors, Alberto spends a lot of his time evangelizing the local community on what Coaching is, its distinctions and its impact on organizations and society in general.

Alberto has more than 25 years’ experience leading and developing individuals and teams in medium and large organizations, both as a senior executive and consultant, including roles with multinational corporations in the United States, Central and South America.  He is a motivator, results oriented, problem solver and conflict management expert.  Although his executive roles were primarily in Technology, Operations and Project Management, he dedicated the majority of his own development to the people´s side of management.  He specifically focused in the integral development of the person and in creating a shared mindset environment where individuals can feel productive and motivated to reach personal and professional goals.

Alberto holds a B.S. in Economics and a B.B.A in Business Analysis and Management, both from Texas A&M University.  He also holds and M.B.A from Texas Christian University and a Coaching and Leadership Development Certificate from Georgetown University.  He is certified in EQi 2.0, and Emotional Intelligence Tool, and has been part of two Team Coaching Workshops with Corentus.
