The most admired businessmen in Central America

Guatemalan businessmen, heads of one of the most important corporations in the region, were selected among the first places in the ranking of the most innovative and admired businessmen in Central America. This list was created by Estrategia y Negocios magazine in its 250th edition.

Juan Luis Bosch, Chairman CMI Capital; and Juan José Gutiérrez, Chairman CMI Alimentos, stand out among the first positions due to their performance during the economic crisis of 2020 caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, which brought a lot of unemployment to the region.

In this regard, Gutiérrez pointed out that the priorities of Corporación Multi Inversiones (CMI) in the health crisis have focused on three main objectives, the priority being safety, health, and well-being of all its employees and their families.

Bosch also commented that at Corporación Multi Inversiones (CMI) they have faced the great challenges posed by this pandemic with optimism, prudence, preserving the integrity of the business, and supporting clients, collaborators, and communities.

So it is these two entrepreneurs who have been able to turn this crisis into an opportunity. Corporación Multi Inversiones has been transformed, thanks to the improvement in its protocols, operational processes, and more internal and external situations, through the use of digital tools.

Juan Luis Bosch Gutiérrez, Juan José Gutiérrez Mayorga and their collaborators have faced this adversity under the essential objectives of the corporation, which are abbreviated as REIR:

  • Responsibility
