Alejandro has spent 15 years in international assignments with Schlumberger, the world’s leading oilfield services company. He began his career in 1996 in his home country of Argentina, and first relocated to Houston in 1998 to work as Financial Analyst. He later held several other financial roles with increasing responsibility in Europe, South America, and North America.
Over the past 10 years, Alejandro was Internal Audit Manager for North and South America, based in Houston (2011 to 2012); Regional Finance Controller for North America Offshore, based in Houston (2009 to 2011); Regional Finance Controller for Latin America South, based in Rio de Janeiro (2004 to 2009); and Finance Director for Spain and Portugal, based in Madrid (2003 to 2004).

She also sits on the Boards of Directors of the BMA (Business Marketing Association) and the Rienzi (the MFAH house museum for European decorative arts and paintings).
During the MBA for Executives program at Rice University, Alejandro worked on a project aimed at creating a replication strategy for Generation One, a non-profit organization committed to the spiritual growth and physical rebuilding of the impoverished areas of the Third Ward of Houston. This project sparked his desire to get actively involved with a non-profit organization, and he reached out to Discover Fitness Foundation through Bodene Orr, a member of its Advisory Board.
Alejandro’s hobbies include playing soccer and golf, and traveling to exotic destinations.
