About me: Francisco was born in New York, but has spent most of his life in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He graduated from Universidad de San Andres in Buenos Aires and did a student exchange at Bocconi University in Milan. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Francisco has worked in several roles and industries. Before joining LBS he held three jobs simultaneously: family business CFO, managing agribusiness; adjunct professor at Pontificia Universidad Catholica Argentina, teaching tech applied to business and entrepreneurship; and managing business development at Argentina's tech and travel unicorn. 

Francisco decided to attend London Business School to grow his international network and further develop his business skills. He hopes to continue his career in tech. Francisco holds an Executive Committee position in the Travel and Hospitality Society and is an active member of the Tech and Media and Football clubs. He remains a devoted River Plate fan and watches all their matches despite the time difference!
