Former President, Mexico
Vicente Fox served as President of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, marking the first time that the dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) had lost a presidential election since 1920. Under his leadership, the country experienced a period of fundamental economic strength and stability. As governor of Guanajuato from 1995 to 1999, Fox saw the state become the fifth most important Mexican state economy and, in certain sectors, surpass the national average. Previously, Fox worked with the Coca-Cola Company, advancing from a route supervisor to company president for Mexico and Latin America. Since leaving office, he has been involved in the development of Centro Fox, a center for the advancement and study of democracy that encourages commitment and solidarity among the Mexican population for the underprivileged. Fox studied business administration at the Universidad Iberoamericana and received a diploma from the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.
