About me: Natalia is from Bogota, Colombia. Prior to LBS, she was living in Monterrey, Mexico, working as fuels operations support manager at Petro Seven (ICONN-Seven Eleven, Petro Seven, MAS Bodega), where she worked for two and a half years. She has eight years of work experience mostly within the oil and gas industry. Natalia has a technical background having graduated as a mechanical engineer from Universidad de los Andes, Colombia. Before graduating, she stared working at ExxonMobil for the Andean North Region (Colombia, Peru, Ecuador) where she had the opportunity to work in various roles across sales operations, planning and pricing, including actively participating in the M&A process through which the company was later sold to Primax Colombia. Her experience includes strategic planning, data analytics and business intelligence, business and market development, operations, B2B sales and project management, among others.

During her MBA at LBS, Natalia aims to leverage her professional experience and technical background along with her growth and learning mindset to transition into technology. She is aiming to further strengthen her leadership skills, experience different industries within the corporate world and engage in initiatives to support women’s professional development.
