After 30 years of serving in the Chilean Air Force in different areas such as Finances, Salaries, Logistics, Human Resources) towards the end of 2014 I undertook an exciting challenge to join the Kallman team, a totally different duty to the ones that I was used to. To achieve my goals in this new challenge, my background as general accountant and commercial assistant helped, but primarily the big support of the team that we have here in Kallman Latin America

Después de haber trabajado por más de 30 años en la Fuerza Aérea en distintas áreas (Finanzas, remuneraciones, logística, personal), hacia fines del año 2014 emprendí un gran desafío el cual fue integrarme a Kallman, algo totalmente diferente a las labores que yo realizaba. Para poder lograr mis objetivos en este nuevo reto me ayudó de cierta manera mi experiencia por el título de contador general y asistente ejecutiva comercial que poseo, pero sobre todo el gran apoyo del grupo humano que formamos en Kallman Latin America.
