Alejandro Betancourt Lopez: President of Hawkers Co.

Alejandro Betancourt Lopez has had much success as an entrepreneur. With an early start to his success, he was able to be one of the first to invest in Hawkers. Hawkers is a sunglass company that does not trade quality of price. They produce high-end fashionable sunglasses at a reasonable price that everyone can afford.

The company did struggle after success in Spain but was able to bounce back after Betancourt Lopez and a group of investors put in 50 million euros. The company did continue to struggle after, but Alejandro Betancourt Lopez continued to invest in the company. Putting in an increase of 20 million euros, he now owns half of the company.

This put him at the head of Hawkers, and they later titled him as the president. He continues to help his company stay at the top and sell more than 4.5 million sunglasses. This has raised the company to be named in 2018 one of Spain’s Top 10 startups.

Alejandro Betancourt Lopez graduated from Suffolk University with a double major in Business Administration and Economics. So, deciding to invest in this company wasn’t a split decision. As an early investor, he profits so much and continues to grow with the company and make even bigger investing decisions. Alejandro Betancourt Lopez is the great-grandson of a previous Venezuelan President Hermogenes Lopez. Although these two had never met they contain the same entrepreneurial spirit.

Betancourt Lopez has been able to broaden his portfolio to include but not be limited to finance, farming, international trade, and much more. Alejandro Betancourt Lopez’s: Twitter.
