For its Latin American assignments, MENTREG partners with and defers to the regional expertise and extensive experience of Carlos Dumois and his extensive team at CEDEM. And MENTREG uses that expertise throughout the world whenever the focus is on issues of owner management. Carlos Dumois, CEDEM’s founder, has over 40 years experience in working with the owner-managers of businesses that started small but have grown to become powerhouses in the Latin American and – in some cases – the world’s economy. CEDEM is a full service consultancy in innovation and entrepreneurship but specialises in a particular focus on working through the value creation process with owner managers and founders of family firms. Using talented consultants and leveraging their models and experiences, CEDEM, like MENTREG, is a mentoring organisation, accompanying the entrepreneur in the search, selection and implementation of major decisions in the search to achieve new value from new knowledge. From its offices in Guadalajara and Miami, CEDEM is perfectly positioned to service the Latin American market. Kevin Hindle and Carlos Dumois have been colleagues and friends for nearly 20 years.
