In 1995 he became the first president and co-founder of the Spain-United States Council, a civil, private organization supported by the governments of both countries, created to promote cooperation and links between Spain and the United States. In 2002 he became Managing Director & Partner of Advent International, one of the largest private equity firms in the world.
