In the interview, Mr. Rivera discusses the impact of the Information Revolution on Latin America – a prospective super potent Americas trading bloc, his unconventional views on Chinese competition, opportunities for long-term growth, intangible qualities needed in executives and how becoming a pilot trained him to navigate risks on the ground.“Jaime’s insight on Latin America and his team’s unique understanding of the region’s integration in the global economy have built Bladex as a market leader and important resource for investors,” said Trina Gordon, President and CEO of Boyden World Corporation.

“Jaime’s vision, values and leadership are responsible for ensuring impressive results at Bladex,” said John Byrne, Managing Director of Boyden Santiago. “His stewardship of Bladex, combined with his understanding of growth opportunities in both Latin American and the financial sector are impressive.”  

Prior to taking the helm as Director & CEO of Bladex in 2004, Mr. Rivera served as COO of the Bank upon joining the company in 2002. Prior to this, he served in various capacities for Bank of America Corporation, both in the U.S. and across Latin America – in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Guatemala, Chile and Venezuela.
