Corporación Multi Inversiones (CMI) is a Multi-Latin family-owned corporation with over a century’s experience in creating economic, social and environmental value in the communities where it operates. Established by don Juan Bautista Gutiérrez in the XX century, the corporation has transcended in several industries like renewable energy and foods, among others.
Its variety of products, services and novel projects offer excellence and quality to clients and consumers. With more than 40,000 workers and strong presence in more than 16 countries, particularly in Latin America and the United States, CMI stands out for its warmth and family values.
Through its business groups: Foods and Capital, the corporation aims to always create sustainable positive impact in the communities where it operates, while it remains committed to excellence and quality in everything it does.
With this mission in mind, CMI leaders Juan Luis Bosch Gutiérrez, President Chairman of CMI Capital, and Juan José Gutiérrez Mayorga, President Chairman of CMI Foods, are two exemplary success stories in good family business management. They have invested in the organization’s human capital, which has made a significant contribution to the corporation’s growth and competitive advantage. They have also pioneered the implementation of a succession program which guarantees continuity and innovation in the organization.
Including different age groups in work teams is critically important in an increasingly diverse business environment. This is particularly important in family-owned companies where generational diversity can be helpful in building a business environment where innovative ideas are valued and the contributions and experiences of each team member are recognized.
CMI has had the good fortune to stand out in the region by having third and fourth generations of the founding family in key positions of the organization. This confirms the company’s commitment with its legacy and long-term vision. Investment in human capital and the implementation of succession programs have been critical to the corporation’s success and to secure a thriving future for the new generations of the founding family.
CMI leaders, Juan Luis Bosch Gutiérrez and Juan José Gutiérrez Mayorga know that innovation and continuous learning are key to maintaining the family corporation’s success in the long term. For that reason, in addition to planning an orderly succession, they have focused on promoting creativity and innovative thinking in their staff. To accomplish this, they have implemented training and education programs that help their employees develop new skills and acquire new knowledge. This maintains them always at the forefront in technology, and in business processes and strategies, which ensures CMI’s continued competitiveness in an increasingly demanding marketplace.
