What are the most valuable skills that you took from your education at RSM?
"They are all infinite and invaluable but the ones that I put into practice on a day to day basis are; 1) team work: creating a more enriching environment for everyone 2) being open minded: I now know how to understand and read between the lines when I am dealing with people from everywhere. 3) technical background: my background before entering the MBA was Industrial Engineering. Now, I feel more than ever prepared to handle one to one meetings with CFOs."

What was the most memorable moment at RSM?
"I would definitely choose the Graduation Day. That day meant a lot to me. It was a dream that finally came true. During the MBA programme I truly lived an experience in which each day was thrilling, challenging and rewarding. My professors, staff from school and friends were the ones that created a well-rounded experience to me."

How would your former classmates describe you?
"The ones that really know me, they would probably tell that I am an extrovert guy and a hard worker. My friends would also recognise the affection that I have towards the RSM community. In that sense, I decided to give back what I received and a fellow alumnus and I founded the RSM Club of Spain. We have a well-established and organised club that promotes the RSM brand within companies, potential students, etc. with a day to day contact with the Alumni Relations Office. Thanks to them, we are providing the best support to alumni based in Spain."

Name three things that make you smile each day!
"When I open the door and I receive my wife with open arms! Or vice versa, when my wife is the one that receives me with open arms. When I start my motorcycle; I love the sound and the pleasure to drive it. And when I am on my way out for lunch; I like relaxed conversations with co-workers which normally end up in telling jokes or teasing each other."

What is your greatest passion in life?
"To overexert myself at all levels and sleep with a completely relax conscious."

What is your ‘I WILL’?
"I WILL make a remarkable impact."
