Chief Executive Officer
Proudest accomplishment?

I am really proud of my family, my wife Lisa and our kids, Anton and Bella. We love to play sports and take fun adventures together!

 

Ways to unwind?

I love golf, mountain biking, skiing, and fishing. I’m also into CrossFit, as my wife is a world class competitor and owns a personal training gym.

Most important factors of success?

Attitude and effort. These are the only two things we can control.

My heroes?

I have two, my father and grandfather. They were both entrepreneurs. My grandfather pioneered the fishing industry in Chile and my dad the international ink business.

Favorite quote?

Not sure it’s a quote but ‘The True Gentleman,’ written by John Walter Wayland in 1899.
