About the topic:
This Powerhouse Thought Leadership Series will be conducted virtually via Zoom.
As industries, countries and the international business continue to cope with Covid-19, they also need to recover from this huge exogenous shock and begin to renew their approach to strategy. We will review why Covid-19 will not stop globalization, the new horizons of the strategy formulation and ultimately, what the 5-steps on strategic planning is all about.
About Professor Humberto Patorniti
Prof. Patorniti’s 35-year career in the hospitality industry has been defined by his passion for leading growth initiatives, building high performing teams, and for growing profitable business for service organizations. His international background, education and business expertise expands across healthcare, retail and offshore oilrig businesses. Bilingual English/Spanish.
Whether as a General Manager, Vice-President or as the CEO responsible for the Sodexo Group in Mexico, Mr. Patorniti’s philosophy has been simple: “Engage your team members and they will accomplish the unthinkable.” In his 7 years as CEO and President, team México tripled revenues, increased cash on hand by 10-fold, and led team México to reinvent the Company’s brand to meet Mexico’s market spending behaviors and consumer preferences. Deeply committed to education, he was the genesis of a partnership with the Mexican Department of Education, to establish an adult degree completion program. This program enabled Sodexo employees and family members who had not been able to complete their Elementary or High School education, to do so.
After retiring from Sodexo in 2013, Mr. Patorniti has not only become more active in business, but has ventured into higher education. As a Rutgers University faculty member and lecturer, he imparts professional wisdom into several graduate level courses at Rutgers Business School, both in the US and Singapore.
