Family Office Exchange (FOX) has appointed Miguel López de Silanes Gómez as market leader for Europe and Latin America.
He will be responsible for delivering FOX services to current members and will also work actively to expand the network in Europe and Latin America.
His base will be in Madrid, but he will spend half of his time in Latin America.
“Miguel has worked extensively in these markets and knows many leading families,” says Sara Hamilton, founder and CEO of FOX. “He has worked for major business owning families, served as an investment banker, and has experience from his own family business. His accomplished skill set and enthusiasm for owner education will serve our current members well and help gain trust from new members. He understands how to help families develop long term vision and strategic plans for their family enterprises.”
De Silanes has most recently been director of the family office for one of Europe’s leading real estate families, with specific responsibility for designing and implementing the family’s investment strategy and for providing owner education to the younger family members.
Previously, he worked at UBS Wealth Management in NY, Chile, and other locations in Latin America. He began his career at Bain & Company as an Associate Consultant in London and Madrid.
De Silanes says: “I look forward to building a robust network of business owning enterprise families and financial families in Latin America and to expanding the current FOX network in Europe. FOX has years of experience building productive networks of families to solve the issues families face in managing their enterprise strategy, educating their rising generations, building decision making systems when there is shared ownership, and working on critical transition plans. For these reasons, I feel FOX can make a very positive difference for enterprise families in Latin America, Europe and the rest of the world.”
