Relating efficiently with collaborators, clients, and communities is one of Progreso’s most important activities. The chairman of the board knows that achieving long-term sustainability for the country is a priority, and a strategic issue for the company.
In the fourth chapter of the «ADN Progreso» Podcast, José Miguel Torrebiarte addressed this and other issues related to environment, growth, strategic alliances, and communication.
In his first speech, Torrebiarte assured that one of the most important processes that he promotes and enjoys at Progreso, is generating a tight-knit relationship with all stakeholders. “Being close to the people is Progreso’s pride and responsibility. It’s also important to work side-by-side with our collaborators, clients, and in general, with every sector related to our activities”.
Communication is a key process for all of Progreso’s activities, achieving it in an efficient and tight-knit way allows for Progreso’s annual goals and sustainability processes to be achieved successfully.
José Miguel Torrebiarte has held different positions within Progreso, from a window factory that closed operations, to managing Mixto Listo. «Occupying different positions within different business units, allowed me to have a comprehensive vision of the important things within the company and promote decisions, from the board of directors, where the common good prevails.«
The president of Progreso’s Board of Directors is a faithful believer in the importance of being close to the people. Committed with Progreso’s values, José Miguel Torrebiarte knows that the company’s leadership and its collaborators are unique and one of its most important attributes.
Another of Torrebiarte’s priorities is promoting good practices to care for the environment, something that Progreso has been doing since its foundation, more than 120 years ago.
“All our policies are aimed at taking care of the environment. Caring for it, makes us aware of the relationship between natural resources and communities; a quality that definitely has always distinguished us”.
The search for new business opportunities is something that he handles with precision and in a sustainable manner. Sustainability is an extremely important pillar within the company’s policies. «As entrepreneurs we are responsible for finding different and efficient ways to generate new opportunities for everyone.»
To conclude, he spoke of the importance in attracting the best human talent to guarantee long-term sustainability for the company. «At Progreso, people are the center of all our operations and it’s one of our most important assets.»
“At Progreso we believe that being good neighbors is a determining factor. Sustainability and community development are principles that we live day by day, and are embedded in Progreso’s DNA”.
