Borja Raventos

About Me

I have more than 2000 hours of experience in coaching executives and members of family businesses.

As an executive and team coach in the IESE Business School (Barcelona), I work with high level international directors.  I am also a visiting Professor at IE Business School (Madrid) and ESADE Business School (Barcelona).

I combine these activities with that of a shareholder (16th generation) of Codorniu Raventós, a company of over 460 years, considered to be the oldest family business in Spain and one of the oldest in the world.  I was a member of its Board of Directors for over 8 years (2006 – February 2015).

As a coach, I was trained in the Co-Active Coaching & Leadership programs from the Coaching Training Institute-CTI (California) and I am certified by the ICF (International Coach Federation).

Before coaching, I worked for more than 15 years in multinationals, such as Sara Lee and Ferrero, occupying management positions and leading international teams.
