Board of Directors

After working for decades as an executive leader in private industry and government, Mr. Jorge Rosenblut now works as an independent consultant to help clients incubate growth, encourage evolution from legacy practice, and transform business models to manage disruption and re-emerge in their industries.

From 2000 to 2015, Mr. Rosenblut acted as president and held Chairman of the Board roles within Enel Group (Endesa Spain), a global energy leader. One of his key accomplishments was helping to direct the $16 billion split of Enersis into two separate entities – Enersis America and Enersis Chile, the largest corporate split ever executed in Latin America.

Prior to joining the ranks of corporate executives, Mr. Rosenblut held leadership roles in the Chilean government in the 1990s. He received his master’s degree in Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School in 1985, and that year joined the World Bank in Washington, DC.

Mr. Rosenblut has been a Member of the Board of Directors of the Institute of the Americas since 2014 and is currently serving as Chairman of the Board. He is based in Miami, Florida, and is the proud parent of a daughter who is currently completing her MBA at Columbia University in New York City, and a son who recently completed his BA at Washington University, Saint Louis, and is now exploring his early roots in Chile.
