Nicolás Posse, an industrial engineer with a long career in the private world in management positions, is chosen by the president-elect, Javier Milei, to be his chief of staff starting next December 10.
Graduated from the ITBA in 1989 and with subsequent studies at the British University of Cambridge, he began his career working at the company Molinos Río de La Plata, and continued working in the food industry until 1999, when he became General Manager and Marketing Director at Telecom.
Shortly thereafter, Posse took over as General Director of the Río de la Plata Region of the Red Bull company, and between 2009 and 2017 he was Project Director of the Aconcagua Bioceanic Corridor, a failed initiative that sought to unite the Atlantic and Pacific oceans through a railway corridor. of high technology.
That was where he met Milei, who also worked at Eduardo Eurnekian’s Grupo América conglomerate. They became very close quickly.
Until now, Posse worked for Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 as general manager of the business unit for the south of the country, in charge of the airports of El Palomar, Mar del Plata, Bahía Blanca, Neuquén, Bariloche, Viedma, Puerto Madryn, Comodoro Rivadavia, Esquel, Río Gallegos and Río Grande.
Since July he had been without pay to be able to fully dedicate himself to the political campaign.
Milei himself revealed that Posse accompanied him along with his possible Chancellor, Diana Mondino, in the repeated contacts he had with international leaders on Monday morning.
“Working to shrink the State and eliminate taxes,” indicated the photo that the three leaders of La Libertad Avanza spread on the social network X.
Weeks ago, in a television interview, Milei had characterized Posse as “a person of extraordinary intelligence, hyper honest, with a furious capacity for work and, above all, very organized.”
And he added: “The Chief of Staff has to be very orderly. He is an exceptional person. Furthermore, we have been friends for 15 years and the reality is that he is the one who is coordinating all the technical teams, he is the one who manages the ministries on his shoulders.
