“I had just gotten back from my maternity leave. After almost 10 years in the energy industry I realized that I was a round ball trying to fit into a squared hole. No matter how long you keep rolling the ball, it will not fit unless the ball gets smaller. And I was not up for becoming smaller. Not at all.
On January 21st 2008 I got fired.
I decided to set up my own company and create a purposeful environment. An environment where empowering people is at the core of the strategy.
Today at holaluz.com, together with my two co-founders and an incredible team of 173 people, I am a driving force behind the green energy revolution. This revolution is changing our world dramatically, as the Internet did two decades ago.
One of my best professors ever, José Antonio Segarra from IESE Business School, loves to say: “Being optimistic is a must and a personal choice.” Following his advice, I challenge, empower, and lead people under my number one premise: EVERYTHING is possible.
I’ve had the privilege to receive numerous awards as an entrepreneur and business woman. Forbes Magazine has listed me as one of the 100 most creative people in the world of business. And the award I treasure the most is the one I get when my three girls kiss me good night.” — Carlota
