In business, there’s a big difference between telling someone what to do to fix a problem and being a leader who resolves a challenge using a hands-on approach. Most of us learn by doing, rather than just seeing. When organisations have the opportunity to jump in head first, and our people are right there with them, we find that our implementation toolkit leads them to real change, resulting in achievements that are sustainable. Emulating that all-in approach is Olazhir Ledezma.
As a professional with over 20 years of experience in consulting and the management of multinational companies, Olazhir has led clients to significant business improvements via design, execution and monitoring. He knows that his work doesn’t stop after implementation. As a former CMO of Belcorp, Partner at McKinsey & Company and Brand Manager at HJ Heinz, Olazhir has worked in a multitude of industries including basic materials, oil and gas, telecommunications and financial services.
Olazhir has had the opportunity to live and work in Peru, the US, Venezuela, Portugal and Mexico and still enjoys when he can travel with his wife and daughter. He stays fit by making sure to keep up a running regimen and Olazhir has some fun with his daughter by trying to beat her at PS4. He also tries a new restaurant each week when he’s home.
