Founder, FRV

We believe that our success needs to have a positive impact in those regions where we operate and that education is the best channel to meet this goal, and to improving the future of those communities that embrace our projects

Fernando Salinas

Country Manager at Central America Region, FRV

After nine years working in FRV, I have significantly grown not only professionally but also personally. Living in four different countries and performing a wide range of activities will certainly have a positive impact in whatever activities I perform in the future.

Everything has to change to stay the same. Energy has to be accessible, clean and sustainable, but if it is not affordable, the change will never come.
