ADMINISTRATIVE AND FINANCIAL DIRECTOR
Carlos Eduardo Velasco Sandoval
Administrative and Financial Director
• Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
• Master’s degree in Business Administration.
I began my professional career in 1994 in the technology industry and in the financial area, working with IBM Colombia for seven years in different positions such as Intercompany Analyst, Cash Management Analyst and as Andean Financial Controller for the printer business unit, leading the markets in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. In 2001, I decided to leave the company to continue my studies travelling to the UK to pursue an MBA at Richmond University-The American International University in London. In 2003, I returned to Colombia to work in different financial positions at Hewlett Packard, Printer Colombiana, Avanxo Colombia, Clínica del Country, and Fundación Cosme y Damián.
This variety of industries has allowed me to gain experience in order to develop important projects for the growth of these companies but most importantly, it has given me the ability to lead and understand the people who work in each of these companies.
For me, being able to share my professional experience to help train better people and professionals among young people is gratifying. Education is the basis for a deep transformation towards a better society, and I am sure that between The English School, parents, and students, we will continue to do so.
