After returning to his country in 1987, Jose Raul Gonzalez Merlo has held different executive positions in the most prestigious companies in Guatemala. 

From his position as CEO of Progreso, he seeks to take the company to its next level of growth, making it a successful regional company that generates pride among its employees and stakeholders.

But, above all, he seek to preserve the legacy of their founder, Carlos F. Novella; a visionary human being in the business, social and environmental fields. An example of a business and family leader from whom we can, and should, all learn a lot from.
