Petra Benes is active in Latin America since 1994, she lived and worked there for seven years and visited almost all the countries on the mainland. Back in the Netherlands Petra gained extensive practical knowledge and experience when it comes to export, not only to Latin America but also to southern Europe and Asia. Petra studied Latin American Studies at Leiden University, later followed by courses in marketing. She is also guest lecturer International Business and Languages at the University of Applied Sciences in Leeuwarden.
Petra combines Dutch soberness, conciseness, orderliness and structural thinking with the passion, warmth, spontaneity, and zest for living so characteristic for Latin American people. She has an entrepreneurial spirit and is result driven, speaks Spanish as well as Portuguese. Her open personality and knowledge of Latin American countries and (business) culture enable her to establish contacts and break the ice easily.
