Earlier this month I travelled to New York to attend the 2014 Spain Economic Forum. The event was organised by the Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce, an institution that, since its founding in 1959, has expanded its reach to become a key player in the economic relations between the two countries. At the Spain Economic Forum, I had the opportunity to share ideas with several members of ESADE Alumni who are now successful professionals in the United States.
I was proud to see how ESADE-trained professionals such as Daniel Landaluce (Lic & MBL‘99), Chair of the Organising Committee for the Spain Economic Forum, have become involved in the organisation of international forums where proposals for global change are debated. Daniel is also the President of ESADE Alumni’s New York Chapter and a Director at PwC in New York. He participated in the Spain Economic Forum alongside prominent figures such as José Manuel Soria, the Spanish Minister of Industry, Energy and Tourism; Javier Fernández-Cid, CEO of Mapfre; and Mónica de Oriol, Chair of Círculo de Empresarios and an ESADE graduate.
