To the American public, Vicente Fox may be Mexico’s most well-known, modern politician. Prior to becoming president, he received a top management diploma from Harvard Business School and went on to become president of Coca-Cola for Mexico and Latin America. He has most recently made national headlines by telling President Trump that Mexico “will not pay for that [expletive] wall,” and continues to engage President Trump on social media.
Vicente Fox Quesada was born on July 2, 1942. He grew up at Rancho San Cristobal in Guanajuato, a communal holding, where the only difference between him and his childhood friends was the opportunities he would have. His experiences continue to remind him of the threat of poverty in his country.
He studied Business Administration at the Universidad Iberoamericana, and later he received a top management diploma from Harvard Business School. In 1964, he joined the Coca-Cola Company in Mexico and started from the bottom. He eventually became President of the company for Mexico and Latin America.
He served as President of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, the first candidate from an opposition party to be elected president.
Nowadays, he is actively involved in encouraging leadership and creating opportunities for disadvantaged people through his organization, Centro Fox.
