John holds a bachelor’s degree in International Business from Grenoble Graduate School of Business and a specialisation degree in Corporate Finance from Universidad Nacional de Colombia. He started his career in sales and marketing in his family business in Colombia, and then took a role in Business Development for a consultancy firm in Beijing. After returning from China, John decided to follow his passion and co-founded a corporate finance advisory firm, targeting SMEs in Colombia’s Coffee Region.
After 3 years running his firm, John wanted to deepen his knowledge and learn from other people working in the financial industry around the world. He chose London Business School because it is the best place to find first class training and the most diverse and high calibre group of experienced professionals all learning from each other in the world’s financial capital. He is a recipient of the Vladimir Vendin Scholarship.
He is now living a life changing experience with his wife in London, where they enjoy travelling and going out with other LBS couples. John has joined the Finance and Emerging Markets clubs, and his wife is a member of the Partners and Women in Business Clubs.
