Being kidnapped when I was 23 years old inspired me to focus on helping others become the best version of themselves. That includes summoning the courage to address the ‘uncomfortable issues’ most people prefer to avoid.
Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Marcelo founded the Technology Division of The Southern Cross Group, a leading private equity group in Latin America. He began his career at his family’s business, Grimoldi S.A., and later helped launch the Boston Consulting Group’s practice in Argentina.
Marcelo has a degree in industrial engineering from the Argentine Catholic University and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He frequently speaks on CEO succession, talent management, and team effectiveness in family businesses and major corporations at international public forums and company gatherings. He loves to play soccer with friends and spend time with his family in Patagonia’s Lake District.
