At BCG, Innovators view the world from unexpected angles. They bring creativity and a fresh perspective to every challenge they face. Gonzalo has the courage to take action.

What I care about most is being part of the most relevant transformations of companies in my country.

Gonzalo

In Gonzalo’s Words

I'm an engineer who loves new ideas, and BCG has allowed me to explore a wide range of industries and companies finding interesting ways of analyzing problems and discovering new perspectives. Even more important, I have had the opportunity to interact with highly prepared people from several industries.

I consider BCG truly unique because it really focuses on people and provides an unparallel platform from which to grow and learn. After two years, I am sure this is the place I will choose to become a better professional as well as a better individual.

About Gonzalo
