Bernardo Quintana Kawage
Non-Executive Chairman
Bernardo brings experience and advises the company’s Executive Management, while working on the firm’s relations and business growth strategy. He is currently CEO at ADVANCE, a conglomeration of construction and civil engineering firms.

His family has been involved for over 60 years in a constant search for engineering solutions and achievements. Consequently, he grew up with the idea that infrastructure is one of the most important driving forces for development of nations. This led him to pay tribute to his grandfather, Ing. Bernardo Quintana Arrioja, by setting up the engineering knowledge center that bears his name: the Instituto Bernardo Quintana, which he chairs.

He has made a significant contribution to the infrastructure sector in Mexico, as CEO of ICA Construcción Urbana, National Vice-Chairman of Public-Private Associations within the Mexican Chamber of the Construction Industry (CMIC), COO of ICA Construcción Civil, Director of American Chamber of Commerce of Mexico, A.C., and member of the Board of Alumni of Anáhuac University.

Bernardo has a Civil Engineering degree from Anáhuac University and two Masters, in Business Administration and in Finance, from the IE Business Institute in Madrid, Spain
