Our People

Manuel Calderón


“Since our beginning in 2004, I have seen our dream become a reality: putting together a fantastic team and above all, seeing our clients succeed. It's never been about growing, and yet it continues to happen year after year. I'm a firm believer that it's because we have been passionate about delivering value every time... there's no substitute for that.”

Manuel founded V2A in 2004, which he named to reflect his philosophy that consultants should not only add value in defining strategy or solving problems (Vision), but should also add value in ensuring implementation (Action).

  • Strategy
  • Organization
  • M&A Support

  • Life Sciences

Prior to founding V2A, Manuel served as practice leader in the Strategic Management Advisory Services practice of Ernst & Young in San Juan. He also worked as product engineer and manufacturing leader at a large pharmaceutical site.

Manuel holds a BS in Chemical Engineering and a minor in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He also holds an MBA in Finance and Strategy from the University of Michigan.

Manuel enjoys spending time with his family (nothing beats a day at the beach together!), reading (specially history and biographies), traveling (love to get to know new places) and all things soccer (playing the "masters" league and watching the pros).
