Andres leads the global business team responsible for Citi’s Consumer mobile and tablet banking offerings around the world. He joined Citi 11 years ago from an international personal-finance startup and has been in a variety of digital roles since then, first for Citi’s Latin America business, then for its U.S. consumer businesses, and, since this year, globally.
Most recently, Andres led the teams that designed and built Citi’s award-winning, critically-acclaimed U.S. consumer banking tablet apps for iPad and Kindle Fire. He is now responsible for building and delivering integrated global designs, products and strategies for Citi´s Consumer mobile and tablet banking offerings worldwide.
Before becoming a banker, Andres was a foreign correspondent and international news executive. He hobnobbed with heads of state and ministers; had tea with mass-murderer military dictators; was driven, blindfolded and at gunpoint, around the capital of Paraguay after midnight; and raced in a car at 120 mph along a minefield in Croatia. He finds most days in banking very manageable.
