Almudena García Calle leads Aboo Partners. In 2012, Almudena co-founded Aboo Partners with Margarita García de la Calle. Both had previously worked together at Goldman Sachs, advising on significant transactions and later serving as Investment Directors at Monitor Private Equity. During their time there, they observed that many family businesses lacked access to quality M&A advice. It was at that moment they decided to establish Aboo Partners, aiming to provide high-value advisory services with a distinctly international perspective to medium-sized companies in our country. With an extensive background of working together in both advisory roles and direct business management, they bring added depth to their analyses, a close connection to the business reality, and a more realistic vision of viable actions and their implementation. Additionally, Aboo Partners has a committee of industrial advisors who, as needed, complement the capabilities of the management team based on the requirements of the different transactions. Aboo Partners is dedicated to building long-term relationships with its clients founded on trust and excellence. Professional excellence, honesty, a motivation to provide real value, and the dedication of its professionals throughout the entire project are the hallmarks of Aboo Partners.
