ONTIER is committed to continuing its expansion in the north of Spain, appointing Carlos Ranera (pictured), former general business director, as the new director of the firm in the north of Spain, with the aim of making the firm a benchmark in the north and northwest of the country.

Ranera takes the reins of this position after a prolific professional career which makes him a perfect connoisseur of the business network of this area, where he worked for many years in different managerial positions.

He holds a degree in Law from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, a PDD and a NIC-Basel II from the IE. He also has a Management Programme and a Leadership Programme from IESE and is also a regular analyst and columnist for major media.

A large part of his professional career has taken place in the banking sector, in the business area, where he became general manager of EspañaDuero (Unicaja Group), as well as a director of numerous companies. He was also the regional director of Banco Santander and regional director of Banco Santander.

Ranera says he feels “very excited personally and professionally for this new challenge, in which I can reconcile ONTIER’s ambitious project with my knowledge of the territory and my personal and family roots.”

For his part, Pedro Rodero, managing partner of the firm in Spain, declared: “With this commitment, our firm, closely linked to the north and in particular to Asturias since its inception, is committed to accompany companies and investors in their progress and global positioning, taking advantage of the immense potential of the business network of these regions and ONTIER’s experience.”
