Four countries. Four cultures. Four means of doing business. Andres grew up in Santiago, Chile, El Salvador, Mexico and USA. His passion about all things international arose from hearing stories from his dad, an international development executive. Stories such as breaking bread in a farmhouse in the depths of the Colombian jungle in the company of a pet snake inspired Andres to seek a path that would have him experience the World. From his teen years exploring new businesses and friendships, he has always been about resourcefulness, openness and growth.

From the beginning of his career in Telecom, Andres has been driven by new initiatives in the pursuit of constant improvement. Via his career path in technology over the last 25 years, he has developed deep capabilities in innovation, marketing, strategy and business development. His efforts have led to the creation of $100 Million + in foundational revenues in corporate and startup environments.

Recently Andres founded, Factor6, a consultancy focused at the intersections of digital, disruption and innovation. In 2006 he co-launched an innovation lab in Deutsche Telekom for a $1 Billion international business unit designed to speed product development and growth in response to aging products and eroding margins. In his role as Vice President of Innovation and resident ‘intraprenuer’ he inspired global teams to launch products and develop markets via innovation management methodologies, time-to-market imperatives and best-in-class technology partners. His efforts there led to the creation and launch of a new business with a market potential exceeding $500 Million.

Andres is a growth catalyst and a passionate promoter of innovation-based frameworks as a way to create and manage value creation in all organizations. He is a regular public speaker with invitations to speak at prestigious organizations such as UNDP, The Milken Institute, Frost & Sullivan and TM Forum in venues located in North America, Africa, Middle East, Europe and Latin America.

Andres holds a Masters in International Business and a BS in Business & Finance. Currently he serves as interim CMO and advisor for two startups; one in Germany and one in Chile. He also serves on the board of directors for Creative Cauldron, a grassroots performing and creative arts organization based in Falls Church, VA, USA. Andres resides in Alexandria, VA, USA outside of Washington DC.
