Luis Fernando in a few words

Professional with over 17 years of experience, including 12 years in strategy and management consulting and 5 years in financial services. Previously the UK Director of an award-winning, global strategy and management consultancy, with a central role in the scale up of its London office. Currently advising startups in the music/digital media and wine industries in their growth journeys.

Proven multi-sector track record as a consultant, particularly in commercial transformation programmes and top line growth projects for leading players in FMCG (Beverage, Food and Beauty), Financial Services and Media. I have helped clients unlock sustainable, cost efficient top line growth by building and implementing route-to-market and market entry strategies.

I have also delivered, managed and implemented projects in over 20 countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia, including global programmes that boosted marketing and sales capabilities throughout mature and emerging markets. Examples of such programmes include distribution network management, key account management, business planning and sales force management, and have allowed clients to increase efficiency and build effective commercial relationships that ultimately unlocked further revenue growth.

Besides working with world class clients, as UK Director of a boutique strategy and management consultancy I had the opportunity to grow and develop a high-performance team, increase consulting revenues by bringing new business and leading a global key account, develop a consulting brand, own and manage a P&L and drive annual and strategic planning processes - in other words, manage a consulting operation on its day-to-day.
