Germán Saenz

Associate Director, Chile
Specialisms:
My passion is to help companies unlock business value by creating a productive relationship with their key stakeholders. I can effectively bridge the gaps between the private sector and the rest of society, including government, media and non-profits. I particularly enjoy the challenge of devising ways to contribute to the business, while simultaneously enabling the business to contribute to a better world.

Background:
I hold an MA in Business Administration from Universidad Católica de Chile, and an MSc in Development Management from London School of Economics. My work experience of over 20 years was developed mainly in P&G and Samsung, and I am proud of having led their transformation into active corporate citizens in Chile and Latin America. I have developed strategies and led teams in areas such as sustainability, corporate affairs and communications. Earlier in my career I also worked as Brand Manager for P&G and I was part of the “Servicio País” program that enables young professionals to work in rural, isolated areas of Chile. I am also proud to follow the family tradition of serving in the Board of “Hogar Español”, a non-profit residence for seniors.

Person I most admire:
I admire consistency, and I deeply respect those who have the courage to stay true to their principles and beliefs, particularly in the hard times.
