His roles have varied during that time span from brand management roles at a single market to category and multi-category roles in multimarkets to his current role, where he leads the soft drink category for the Latam region.

He had the privilege to work as well within bottling operations in Venezuela and Mexico, which has helped him in building a better understanding of the business overall.

Welcome, Eric to Portada's Council System!
