And the Samaipata family keeps on growing!

Pablo Ferreras joins us as CFO

Welcome to Samaipata Ventures’ blog, a VC fund specializing in market-place and disruptive e-commerce models in Southern Europe. If you don’t want to miss out on any quality information, follow us here on Medium, Twitter or suscribe to our newsletter.

A week after announcing Eduardo Diéz-Hochleitner had accepted our invitation to become our new Chairman, we are now thrilled to announce a new addition to the Samaipata family: Pablo Ferreras Granado has just joined us as CFO.

Pablo has extensive experience in the field, as former CFO at investment bank Abante for 2 years, one the main independent financial groups in Spain. Previously, he worked as an auditor for the Spanish Securities Exchange Commission (CNMV) and leading audit firm Deloitte for seven years.

And all this aged just 6 years old, what a smart kid! Well, he’s a bit older today but we couldn’t resist ourselves with the photo.

Besides his great spirit (some mornings he even brings us breakfast to the office!), in less than a week Pablo has already become indispensable in our day to day. We really don’t know how we were managing before without him and his strict control of everything that goes on in Samaipata. We are certain that Pablo’s prior experience and more than proven capabilities will be of invaluable value both to our fund and to our portfolio companies.

It’s a great moment to rescue one of our favorite quotes at Samaipata: “None of us is as smart as all of us”.

Welcome on board Pablo! Let’s keep on working together to reimagine the venture capital scene in Southern Europe!
