DANIEL LÓPEZ TOLEDO

Managing Director cbc Guatemala

“Passion, energy and empathy are key to achieving results. We spend more time at work and with our colleagues than we do with our family. That’s why you must love what you do, enjoy it day in and day out without it being a burden; inject passion into it to make it worthwhile.  

At the center of it all is the energy with which we connect with our teams. You must be an active, joyful leader with a winning attitude in order to positively influence our people. Finally, I do not leave behind empathy, and perhaps one of the ones that characterizes me the most. You must have a genuine interest in people, who are the engine of any great company. Behind every action there are people who have needs and dreams just like you.

I identify with the value of WE ARE OWNERS, as it has always allowed me to manage the business with ethics and honesty, seek the greatest benefit for our employees and maximize resources, always doing what is right over what is convenient. With “owner’s eyes” you get a more efficient and profitable business, for much longer.”
