About Us

Centras means "center" or "core" or simply "the most important thing".

We founded Centras more than 10 years ago and based on three core values: Professionalism, Customer Orientation and Ethics.

We consider our clients as strategic partners and believe in long-term professional relationships.

Our main offices and most of the work team are located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We are flexible and adaptable, which allows us to assume responsibilities in projects in different geographies.

As success stories we can mention that we have traveled through our country as facilitators and trainers of leadership programs for key personnel, we have provided Executive Search, Consulting and Coaching services in cities such as Shanghai, Madrid, Miami and in several countries of Latin America such as Chile, Peru, Colombia, Uruguay, Ecuador, Brazil and Mexico.

I am a person with varied professional interests. Several years ago I collaborate with Centras in commercial and professional matters, being a specialist in “hunting” of technical and engineering profiles. At the same time, I manage and lead a small company dedicated to the construction of light vessels. Previously, I have worked in national and multinational human resources consultancies, mostly in staffing and training areas, although I have also worked in hard processes consultancy for large clients.

I often teach courses on different subjects and sometimes entirely in English, a challenge that I enjoy because I have a very good use of the tool. On the other hand, I like to provide training with some kind of social function such as assisting young people who emerge from unfavorable situations in their preparation to face and join the labor market.

I consider myself a family man, therefore I greatly enjoy spending time with my wife and children, to whom I give all the space that day to day allows me. My energy to move on does not come only from the moments we spend together, but also from those individual moments in which one manages to connect with each member of the family.

Public Relations & Communication Partner

I have a degree in Public Relations graduated from UADE, I have been number 1 of the argentine professional squash women's circuit and I have competed around the world in international tournaments.

Prior to joining Centras and for more than 15 years, I worked in prestigious consulting firms such as Edelman, ZCR Consultores and Identia PR. During my career I have personally attended various companies and foundations of different areas in matters of internal and external corporate communication, corporate social responsibility, institutional image, co-branding and strategy development in social media.

I consider communication as a critical and fundamental aspect in any company, given that it crosses internally all its areas. Towards the outside, it is undoubtedly the key to a positive brand positioning that must be properly addressed to each public of interest. Inward, it is a key tool that enables success in leading people and in the definition of an effective organizational culture. I believe that each space is an opportunity and each silence a place that our competitor will occupy.

In relation to my personal life, I am a mother of two children -Bautista and Julia- who taught me to balance my activities so I can be there whenever they need me. Sport continues to be part of my routines and at this stage I enjoy practicing spinning, functional training and boxing. I like to travel with my family and share moments with friends. I think happiness is found in simplicity.
