Jaime Aparicio-Otero, a former diplomat, lawyer, journalist and political advisor with decades of experience across Latin America, joins Deheza’s Executive Team. Jaime has extensive experience developing solutions for senior executives across multiple industries that are facing complex legal, human rights, political, media and market challenges in Latin America. His expertise includes international government relations, private diplomacy, and strategic counsel for multinational corporations and investors.
Jaime’s impressive resume extends beyond the word-count of this article but briefly, he has a Law Degree from the Higher University of San Andrés of La Paz, the Bolivian Diplomatic Academy and the Institute d’Etudes Politiques (Sciences Po). He was formerly the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Acting Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of Bolivia, Bolivian Ambassador to the United States of America from 2002 to 2006 and the elected President of the Inter-American Juridical Committee of the Organisation of American States.
Elizabeth Deheza, our CEO, said, “We’re honoured to have Jaime join our team to lead our activities in Washington DC. The wealth of experience he brings to the table from a distinguished career as a lawyer, diplomat and executive advisor will be extremely valuable to Deheza and its clients.”
Jaime Aparicio-Otero added, “Despite the challenges of a region badly affected by COVID-19, social and political polarisation, and a lack of regional integration, Latin America still presents compelling opportunities for businesses and investors amid global turmoil. Deheza has an impressive track record of providing meaningful strategic counsel to the executives of leading corporations and entities seeking clarity on a range of business-critical issues in Latin America by leveraging the experience and knowledge of experienced market and industry natives.”
