Alejandro Betancourt Lopez is one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs in Venezuela. The Venezuelan businessman holds various executive positions at O’Hara Administration, Pacific Exploration and Production Corporation, and Hawkers.
Alejandro Betancourt Lopez is an alumnus of the Suffolk University in Massachusetts, where he took a double major in Business Administration and Economics. After he graduated from university, he started to look for a job. He aimed to gain experience so that he can enter the best companies in the world. His first job was with a company operating in the energy sector. He was trained on how the industry works and guided him on how exploration and production are taking place inside the company. Later on, he transferred to Guruceaga Group, where he focused on international trade. He also worked with BGB Energy for a short time.
His major stint was with the Pacific Exploration and Production Corporation. In May 2015, Alejandro Betancourt Lopez was able to purchase 20% of the company’s shares through O’Hara Administration. Three months after he purchased the shares, he was appointed to become the company’s director of the board. His promotion as the director of the board is a testament to the trust given to him by his co-workers, and he promised that under his leadership, the company would expand aggressively to penetrate new markets. He hopes that these expansion plans would help the company generate more profit. Another thing that he suggested was the entire restructuring of the company. This will cost the company $575 million, and the executives are thinking carefully about whether to approve it or not.
For Alejandro Betancourt Lopez, the most important thing in the energy sector is the ability of the company to cope with the changes. He also highlighted the importance of establishing new satellite offices in faraway places where oil and gas operations would thrive.
He is also working with Hawkers, a fashion company that specializes in sunglasses. The company was formed in 2016 after he partnered with Spanish entrepreneurs Hugo Arevalo and Feliz Ruiz. So far, the business is booming, and they are gaining a lot of new clients who slowly discover the products that they offer.
