Experience
Rodrigo, born to Chilean parents, grew up in the UK for his first 21 years. Shortly after meeting his English wife they relocated to Chile in 1995, where Rodrigo received his degree in interpretation and translation. Prior to joining PSO in 2014, he worked as the Finance Manager for D Science for six years, an industrial design company focused on increasing awareness of science for children. In this position he gained experience with managing government contracts and the on-line bidding system, Chilecompras. Prior to this he was the Sales Manager for Fundación Solidaridad, a Fair Trade Foundation focused on the sale of handicrafts from Chilean artisans for global distribution in 25 countries.

In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family both in Santiago and on the coast, and catching the occasional Premier League football game. He is bilingual (English/Spanish).
