    My name is Victor M. Rios and I am Associated CEO of Rios Figueroa Consultores. I graduated in Advertising from the Palermo University in Argentina. I have been working for Rios Figueroa Consultores for 17 years now. Throughout my career I have worked with different companies as a consultant. We’ve helped companies from different industries, even though our main focus has always been the Agrochemical Industry. Working for the Agrochemical Industry has given me the opportunity to explore the Mexican territory and have a better understanding of the Mexican Agromarket. My work has also taken me to different countries, allowing me to work with the top Agrochemical Companies in the world. Being part of the agricultural world has been an enriching experience, that continuously reminds me the importance of food production around the world and the difficulties growers face year after year to bring food into our tables.
