I am an Assistant Professor in the Strategic Management Department of IESE Business School. In 1999 I began teaching part time in the MBA and Global Executive programs and joined the faculty on a full time basis in 2003.
I currently lecture in IESE’s MBA and Executive Education programs where I teach strategy, globalization, and sustainability and publish a weekly blog on these topics under the title Doing Business on the Earth.

Prior to join IESE Business School, I was the Automotive Practice Leader of Heidrick & Struggles and before that spent 15 years as a Management consultant in Europe, North America and Asia for A.T. Kearney and for Arthur D. Little primarily in the automotive sector. I began my career as an engineer for Sonat Offshore Drilling involved in the design and construction of offshore drilling platforms in the U.S., Norway, and Japan.
