We are pleased to announce that our 130th Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 14th June at the exclusive Merchant Taylors’ Hall, located in the heart of the City of London.
This corporate event is one of the most important activities that the Spanish Chamber organises during the year and it is attended by leading representatives from a wide range of British and Spanish companies. Following tradition, the event will be presided by H.E. the Ambassador of Spain, Mr. Carlos Bastarreche Sagües.
On this truly special occasion, we are pleased to count on Mr. Luis de Guindos, Minister of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness of Spain as our Guest of Honour, and we would like to take this opportunity to introduce him as well as the Ministry he represents.
After studying a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Business at the Colegio Universitario de Estudios Financieros, with an extraordinary prize upon graduation, Mr. Luis de Guindos has developed his career in both public and private sectors.
Mr. de Guindos began his professional career in the private sector in AB Asesores as an adviser. Following on from this, he worked in Lehman Brothers Spain and Portugal as CEO, the same position he held for Nomura Securities, prior to becoming responsible for the finance division of PricewaterHouseCoopers.
Since 2011 Mr. de Guindos has served as Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain, renamed in 2016 Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness. He has played an important role in the resolution of the financial and economic crisis, being involved in the negotiations with the EU and the subsequent financial structural reforms of Spain.
With such a remarkable Guest of Honour, we are positive that attendees will be delighted to listen to Mr. Luis de Guindos insights and exchange impressions with him during the evening.
Not to mention that the Gala will be hosted at one of London’s most impressive livery halls: Merchant Taylor’s Hall, which dates back to the 14th Century! If you want to have a look to the magnificent setting for our 130th-anniversary gala dinner, please click here.
