    Francisco Baraona

    Interim Manager and M&A Advisor

    "Transformation is like a demanding mountain climb that requires a natural challenge as the altitude increases. Success requires intensive training. In my role as a manager, I act like an experienced mountain guide: I lead the way, but true and sustainable transformation requires each team member to master the ascent independently."
