I’m a continuous learner, and this profession provides me with opportunities to constantly refresh or expand my learning on many topics. No engagement is ever the same, whether you’ve been here for a week, a month, or, as in my case, 17-plus years.
Before joining Egon Zehnder, Angel worked primarily for companies serving the entertainment market. As Managing Director of NBA Latin America and Manager of New Business Development for Disney Consumer Products International, his projects ranged from licensing consumer products across developing markets to activating sponsorship partnerships and staging live events, including managing the logistics for the NBA’s first-ever regular-season game in Mexico. Earlier in his career, Angel gained corporate banking experience at a major financial institution in the southeastern United States.
Angel earned an AB in economics from Harvard College and an MBA from Harvard Business School, and served for several years on the executive committee of the school’s alumni board. He is also a past trustee of the University of Miami and a member of the advisory board to Women Executive Leadership (WEL), as well as a past president of the University of Miami’s Citizens Board. Angel is an active member of the Orange Bowl Committee, combining his passions for sports and civic engagement. He also serves on the national board of Up2Us, a nonprofit group that dedicates itself to transforming the lives of vulnerable young people in America by harnessing the power of sports.
