Carlos is a change agent, with deep business, technical and strategic insight who understands how to maximize value creation. He is a transformational leader who engages teams and motivates individuals in different parts of the organization to drive successful outcomes.
Carlos is as comfortable working with corporate boards as with execution teams, and he always keeps the ultimate success of the project in mind, effectively utilizing customized approaches that deliver successful results."

"When I made the decision to retire after more than 45 years as an entrepreneur in the construction industry, I asked Carlos Orozco to help me structure my company to project it into the future in a sustainable manner, which would not depend on my presence in any executive position, preserving the fundamental principles and values that I have always believed in, and building on the strengths we have developed over the years.
This process has been supremely enriching because Carlos has a comprehensive vision that includes all areas of the company from management, commercial, technical and construction, to financial, accounting and administrative.
The restructuring work done to project the company into the future is full of wisdom because of the way Carlos has led and empowered the different groups, giving them a north, and highlighting the strengths of each person to inspire them to give their best of themselves.
Carlos understood quickly that this was a fundamental first step that had to be taken, and I feel admiration and respect for the knowledge, experience and wisdom with which this process has been managed, and that has resulted in supremely positive transformations of people in key positions for the operation of the company.
But of equal importance has been the way in which Carlos understood the financial and business situation of the company, the limitations and problems that we had with the existing projects, and the way in which he has helped us take advantage of new opportunities and technologies to significantly improve the results , and prepare the organization and the company for a future based on the permanent pursuit of excellence.
The moral, spiritual and intellectual principles of Carlos are those of a person trained, structured and with the knowledge and clarity to apply human values in all his management decisions."
