Francisco Arredondo

Francisco Arredondo
30
Guatemala City, Guatemala

Francisco graduated from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut and received an MBA from SHU Luxemburg. After that, he returned to Guatemala where he has been the CEO of Carnes Processadas S.A. since 2001- a food production and distribution company that has operations in Central America. Most of his adventure days have been on a motorcycle, which is a sport that he has competed in his entire life. Some examples of his All-Terrain Rally Endurance Motorcycle Racing are: Paris to Dakkar Race (four times, completing twice), Baja 1000 (four times), and The World Championship for several years- held in places like Dubai, Argentina, and other deserts of the world. Francisco is the only Central American to complete any of these races.

In 2006, Francisco’s sister and brother-in-law trekked to Everest Base Camp. When they returned, they relayed their stories to Francisco and sparked an interest in the mountain. One day, thinking that Mt. Everest is one of the world's greatest adventures and a great challenge as well, Francisco set out to tackle this newest goal. From that point forward, Francisco has climbed in Central and South America as well as Utah to prepare for the Himalayas. With the help of the team, Francisco looks to accomplish his goal and continue with new adventures.
