He wrote two theses, dealing with the mass of the Black Hole located in the center of our Milky Way galaxy and the development of magnetic fields around new-born stars. Manuel also worked at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics as a student observer at the Millimeter Wave Radio Telescope, gathering mass density data of our galaxy. He was president of the Harvard Rugby team, amongst other extracurricular activities.
Previous to co-founding QUETSOL, Juan worked at Procter & Gamble as a Brand Manager for a diverse portfolio of consumer product brands across Central America. The scale and volume of P&G’s activities allowed Juan constant interaction with and intimate understanding of consumers of scarce resources in both urban and rural areas throughout the region. Familiarity with such a large sales and marketing apparatus facilitates QUETSOL’s aims of bringing such world-class services to our customers – regardless of income level.
