“There’s always someone 24/7 waiting to say the same thing as you. That’s why it’s no longer enough to be vigilant, you have to be all in.”
Taking on Viancos is a gamble. If you’re on the other side, he’ll make sure to have crafted the best strategy and arguments, he’ll think about what to say and how to say it, and he will identify your weaknesses and blind spots. If you happen to be on his side then get ready for the lesson of your life.
He’s someone that doesn’t stop. He’s always got a new angle and plan, even when he’s already resolved the problem.
His entire life has been a training exercise for body and mind — from karate classes to theatre and chess. He always has a new goal, whether it’s running triathlons, 170 KM around Lake Llanquihue, skiing, swimming, or tennis. It doesn’t matter the terrain; the race is always on.
This journalist at heart was seen working on the computers, telephones, and typewriters in almost every big media company in Chile, including as Business Editor at “La Tercera”. But there was no turning back when he was given the opportunity to become the partner and head of Crisis Management at Simplicity.
His preparation is meticulous and obsessive. He doesn’t leave a single stone unturned. He reviews, dismantles, and reassembles all the information and as many times as it takes to craft the perfect strategy. His 20 years working as a business journalist has given him a deep understanding of the business world (and the ability to pull an all-nighter.)
Maybe his ability to understand and resolve complex cases comes from his love for chess, skiing, theatre, and cars… you just never know what you’ll get with our James Bond from Lake Llanquihue, where he resides today.
