Fernando Rodriguez is a Senior Partner at Stanton Chase’s Santiago office. He is also a core member of the global Natural Resources and ESG practice groups, where he leads these practices in Latin America, advising the world’s leading mining and energy companies in the region.

In close partnership with senior executives and hiring managers, Fernando has driven strategies for multiple search assignments that advance the interests of his clients with assets and operations in Latin America, helping to identify, assess, and develop their leadership teams.

Prior to joining Stanton Chase, Fernando was General Manager for an international executive search firm where he successfully expanded the practice across South America, opening markets in Chile, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia and effectively serving high-profile clients in the mining, infrastructure, and energy sectors.

Working with CEOs and C-Level leaders, Fernando is known for the implementation of regional strategies based on risk and potential, and he has a strong understanding of the commercial issues facing organizations operating in different Latin American markets.

He has also been instrumental in developing and implementing specific market-entry plans for expansion into the Latin American markets, attracting major investors and acting in a technical and management capacity on PPP projects with governments and corporations, including Siemens AG, Barrick Gold Corporation, AES Gener, Andean Power, and BHP Billiton.

With the ability to break through language and cultural barriers, Fernando is fluent in English and Spanish, with a vast and accurate vocabulary in both languages that has been utilized across complex business negotiations.

Fernando has a degree in Economics and a master’s degree in International Trade from Monash University in Australia.
