Main professional achievements:

I have dedicated a large part of my professional life to do specific consultancies for the public and private sectors, and for international organizations in social, economic and financial aspects; strategic planning; program and project assessments.

In the public finances field, I participated in the development of a diagnosis about the capacities of the country’s municipalities to face the decentralization process. Such study was financed by the Spanish Aid Agency and coordinated by the National

Association of Municipalities (ANAM).  I also trained the Development Councils to design, implement and assess investment projects to design the Nation’s Income and Outcome project.

I am currently an advisor for the Finance Commission of the City Hall’s Municipal Council. One of my main responsibilities is to support the Finance Directorate with the Financial Management Integrated System and Guatecompras. I am also a financial advisor to the Boards of Directors of the Municipal Water Company (Empagua) and the Metropolitan Transit and Transportation Entity (Emetra). As part of my responsibilities as an advisor to the City Hall, I belong to the Projects Follow-Up Committee, which meets weekly to make decisions related to large investment projects.
