Carlos Duno
Exit Planning Specialist

Carlos brings a nuanced approach to guiding Sam Goldenberg & Associates’ clients into financial freedom and their best futures. His experience spans top-level executive positions with multi-national corporations to leading The Hire Firm into Albuquerque and Santa Fe’s top executive staffing and recruitment resource. Since 2004, he has consulted with high-net worth business owners to craft achievable strategies that integrate their business, personal, and investment goals.

Carlos graduated from National University of Mexico’s industrial engineering program, holds multiple master level degrees from Columbia University in New York, and is certified by the Hudson Institute of Coaching. He progressed from the initial corporate rungs, to managing Scott Paper Company’s $650-million unit, to Vice-President of Development for the global leader in glass manufacturing Vitro S.A., to serving as the CEO and Chairman of Clean Fuels Technology.

Over the course of his globe-trotting career, he gained valuable experience in business development, strategic planning, financial oversight, and team building. To his native fluency in English and Spanish, he adds conversational competency in French, German and Italian.

Since Carlos, his wife, and coterie of dogs began calling Santa Fe home in the early 2000s, he has dedicated his talents to New Mexico’s business community. He nurtures each client’s style, helps them maximize their leadership skills, and guides them in realizing their organization’s potential. By breaking down daunting goals into practical, attainable steps, Carlos has helped small business owners achieve a financially-rewarding exit with the capital to pursue their next life adventure.

Carlos is proud to be a long-term board member of the Espanola Humane Society and the Santa Fe Botanical Garden.
