José- Carlos has 25 years’ experience of restructuring, finance, HR and IT in several large multinational corporations. He now stands as Vice President for ASSET, an association with over 600 members – CFOs, treasurers and finance professionals from both corporates and public institutions.

And if any of those complexities ever prove to be unusually tricky, she sometimes finds the answer while reading a good book.
