The Rise Of A Venezuelan Entrepreneur

The bright start of David Osio’s career was a clear indication that he would succeed in almost everything that he put his hands on. Twelve years after graduating from the Catholic University of Andres Bello, Osio found Davos Financial Group.

Osio was a hard working student who produced good results all through his high school life. This earned him a chance to join the Catholic University Andres Bello, a leading university in Latin America. He enrolled in Advanced Management Program and graduated four years later with an undergraduate degree.

Unlike other graduates, his outstanding performance at the University enabled him to start his career straight at management level. He joined OPED Enterprise in 1981 as both the president and chief executive officer. While still at OPED Enterprise, he secured an executive position at the LETCO Commercial Properties. He worked at the two firms until 1984 when he quit to start practicing law.

Osio began his law career at MGO, a law firm located in Caracas. At the firm, he specialized in banking law, which gave him the opportunity to work with many top banks in Venezuela including Consolidated Bank. His broad knowledge of banking law and experience as a banker enabled him to succeed in his career.

History of success and hard work continued to open more doors for the young professional. Banco Latino International (BLI) appointed him to lead their Private Banking Division in Miami. He worked at that position for two years before Banking Commercial appointed him as their vice president. Osio strengthened the bank’s international position and increased the value of its customer portfolio.

After 12 years of working for other businesses, David Osio had gained experience and expertise needed to start his firm. In 1993, he left Banking Commercial and founded Davos Financial Group. The new company specialized in providing financial advice to businesses and individuals in Venezuela. The business grew faster and employed many financial experts.

As the firm grew, it generated more money for Osio who reinvested the money to start many companies. These investments have enabled him to become one of the wealthiest people in Venezuela. Osio continues to serve as the chief executive officer of the financial group. Apart from developing his companies and providing financial advice to his clients, Osio participates in events aimed at enhancing the livelihoods of different communities. He is associated with non-profit organizations such as Fundana Foundation, Miami Symphony Orchestra, EPK Foundation and Saludarte Foundation.
