Marc Papell

Founding Partner and Partner Director of the Colombia office

“This job allows you to transform the reality of a region and change lives”

 

He started in the field of clusters as a recent graduate. He admits that the sector attracted him immediately, and now he has 18 years of experience dedicated to it! He has carried out projects in Catalonia, Brazil, Italy or France among others. And in 2005, he began his adventure in Cluster Development together with Lluís and Eduard.

 

In 2012, the team realised that Colombia could be an interesting market for the company and Marc decided to move with his family. Since then, the Colombian head office has been growing and currently has a team of five people and has carried out more than 50 projects.

 

This job allows you to transform reality and change lives. He explains that this sensation is even more intense in Colombia than in Europe, since “you offer new development possibilities to people and communities”.

 

His family is his main passion since he spends 50% of his time away from home, so when he returns, he tries to spend as much time as possible with them.
