With much excitement, Endeavor Global announces its new President, Fernando Fabre. Fernando assumes his role this month in Endeavor’s New York City headquarters. Since 2004, Fernando has served as Managing Director of Endeavor Mexico with passion and dedication, expanding Endeavor Mexico from 1 to 10 offices dedicated to 180 entrepreneurs.
Fernando’s new role focuses on Endeavor Global’s internal organization and performance. His responsibilities as President include leading operational strategies, budgeting, managing personnel, and supervising accountability and performance metrics.
Fernando’s commitment to creating opportunity extends beyond Endeavor: he has served as a part-time professor of Entrepreneurship at Anahuac University, board member of the National Committee of Innovation and board member of Lumni, a student lending program. Appointed by President Vicente Fox, Fernando and Dr. Richard Smith spearheaded an initiative which helped lead to a Mexican association of venture capital funds and programs to support small and medium-sized businesses. Named a top “30 under 30” business leader in Mexico in 2007, Fernando is also a Kauffman Fellow.
Co-Founder Linda Rottenberg will continue leading as CEO to champion Endeavor’s entrepreneurs and global network. With Fernando’s internal support at Endeavor, Linda will direct her efforts to such externally-focused areas as fundraising, network recruitment and partnership development.
