The ROSEN family

“What I have liked most about working at ROSEN is the fact that it is a family company, and people’s wellbeing plays an important role in decision-making. Whenever changes are discussed, the natural question is how they will impact the individual and their family. On a personal level, I have had the opportunity to grow in many aspects within the company and been promoted quickly. I also got a chance to live in Lingen, Germany, as well as opportunities to meet and interact with many people from South America, North America, Europe and Asia.” 

Great friendships

“After so many years, I have built great friendships that last beyond when people leave the company. It is common for colleagues who have worked with us to stop by the office in Bogotá as part of their trip to Colombia. As a team, we have faced the loss of co-workers or people who were very important to us; we have seen many children being born and growing up. That way, we participate in each other’s lives and create special types of bonds."

Outside of the office, you will most likely find Omar spending time with his family, among other activities. “I love to spend time with my dog. I also really like social entrepreneurship and technology education for children and I dedicate some of my free time to these topics. I also like the cinema and have previously studied film and television. I like to do outdoor activities with my family, and enjoy exercising, in particular swimming.”
