Get to know Josué Riestra - Brand Manager Latam

by Helen Butterworth News

If you could go anywhere this weekend, where would you go and why?  

I would love to go to Japan (to see the F1 race), but also to know this great and different culture.

What are you most passionate about?

I love travelling and I love to get to know new places and to explore them (not just know the “regular” stuff). Also I’m very competitive and I like all kinds of sports.

What is one thing you have learnt in the last year?

That time is the most limited resource we have. We should love everything we do or don’t do it. I like to experiment and learn from my past mistakes. And I always remember that we only have one life and everything we do must be worth living.

Your favourite memory involving tea:

The time Ximena told me I was selected for my new position and that I would be able to participate in this great team.

The most memorable experience from your career so far:  

My most memorable experience was a work trip to Colombia, which I got to go on with a colleague (and friend). It was my first working experience out of the country; it helped me to understand other ways to see the organisation and it was also really fun!

What do you hope to get from your time in the joint venture:

A new experience. I hope to learn a lot from a new and different business. I am moving to Guatemala for this position and I’m also looking forward to getting to know new friends, a new home and a new culture.
