Yohan Powell Joins CARGAMOS as Co-Founder and CFO
Since our kickoff, CARGAMOS has always focused on building a dedicated team to provide innovative supply chain solutions. Our commitment and values have brought great success – with more than 100,000 shoppers every month enjoying an excellent experience when receiving their purchases. Now, we are pleased to announce that Yohan Powell is joining the next chapter of our story as co-founder and chief financial officer.
Yohan joins our team to drive strategy and finance and oversee fundraising M&A initiatives. CARGAMOS offers the best next-day shipping solution in Latin America, connecting retailers and independent shippers with our unique last-mile infrastructure strategically located within close proximity to the region.
Yohan counts more than 15 years of experience in the financial sector, including a decade as an investment banker in Macquarie’s M&A and private equity departments in London, Sydney, Paris, New York, and Mexico City. He has advised clients globally on more than 50 transactions ranging in value from $100 million to $2 billion.
Yohan, who assumed CFO duties in March, also spent more than two years at McKinsey in Mexico City, where he helped Latin American startups and traditional companies scale and leverage their existing resources to create thriving ecosystems.
“I am delighted to have Yohan join the CARGAMOS executive team. He brings extensive experience in operations management and has driven several substantial growth programs throughout his career,” said Ivan Ariza, CEO of CARGAMOS.
“Yohan’s experience in consulting and investment banking will provide CARGAMOS with the structure and best practices we need to support our ambitious growth strategy,” he added.
“I am very excited to join CARGAMOS at this important time in the company’s growth stage. I particularly look forward to working with Iván Ariza, Éverton Viana, Fabián Antorveza, and the rest of our team members to unlock the potential of e-commerce in Latin America,” Yohan said of his appointment.
At CARGAMOS, we have the bold vision of becoming the last-mile logistics extension of all e-commerce in Latin America. We are creating a dense physical last-mile network of strategically located pickup and delivery points at high-proximity nodes to optimize the delivery cost downstream. CARGAMOS was founded in Mexico City in 2019 by Iván Ariza, Éverton Viana, and Fabián Antorveza,
