Believing is Creating…
I started out in this great adventure of entrepreneurship and business management with huge zest and eagerness. With zest, because I’ve always felt passionate about my country, and from an early age, I’d longed to contribute to its development in some way. I believe in Ecuador just as I believe in family, with unconditional love and devotion, with discipline and energy. And with eagerness, for that is the emotion that brings you to creation. Work is no longer work when we add optimism to our effort. In that realm, work turns into creation.
I accepted the challenge of leading several enterprises in 1994. It was my chance to make my dream come true and contribute to Ecuador. My experience had been limited to the Foundation and to managing non-governmental institutions. With this background, I sought advice from renowned entrepreneurs, I deepened my financial and economic knowledge, and I surrounded myself by principle-committed professionals, whose mottos were these two passions: creating and believing. Creating in order to be innovative in what we do and believing in order to bet it all on the country, and let that energy and thrust be regarded as our characteristics.
We founded Nobis in 1997 and from the beginning its mission was to become a key part of our country’s progress and development, by CREATING employment and growth opportunities for its citizens. We knew that setbacks and complex scenarios should not stop our mission and that only the achieved results would count. We could only conceive this possible through our values such as: Integrity, creativity, perseverance and specially teamwork, by making the most of our human talents, and creating synergy so as to structure a production apparatus where each cog would have each of our companies’ workers’ names and surnames.
Nobis has dedicated its institutional life to reaffirming its commitment and faith in Ecuador and its citizens day after day, in the knowledge that each of our actions will echo in future generations. We are convinced that we cannot wait on perfect conditions in order to produce and prosper. We need to create these conditions, honoring our obligations, with creative and innovative work, envisioning our communities’ sustainable development through social and environmental responsibility.
If working by and for the country defines us as a group of enterprises that has tried to succeed, I think we are still far apart from achieving this. We believe that success is not arriving at a port but rather it’s a constant journey. Our book still has many blank pages to be filled in. What we have done up to now is barely the kickoff of a story that has just begun…
