Arican by birth. Father of two kids. Since graduating from Law School at the Catholic University in Santiago, where he also studied Aesthetics, he realised that his don was creating: hence, his law firm Failla & Martínez. Amongst many of his projects, Joel has published two apocryphal poetic works, and currently oversees all development of Picnic Sur S.A.
American from Osawatomie, Kansas. He studied sociology at Gordon College in Massachusetts. After traveling in Latin America, he fell in love with Santiago and decided to study his masters in International Politics at the University of Chile. He was a professor of international relations, but realised that his passion for bicycles and Chileans was much stronger than for books and classrooms.
Joined the team due to her enthusiasm of biking and desire to have a cleaner Santiago. She wants to live a kind life both to the planet and the people. She began as a green guru early 2015 and one year later she was offered the job as operations manager. Marcela is like the mother of the company and is the oil that keeps our bike chains running.
Tharsis has 31 years of experience in the field of tourism. She is always smiling, creative and motivated, which makes it a perfect fit for her to be in charge of new business areas. She enjoys biking, travel, and contact with nature.
She was raised by her maternal grandparents who taught her to be joyful and strong to deal with life. Her village was quiet, so there wasn’t much to do besides read books and watch TV. And so was born her interest in the world, different cultures, languages, and travel through the experiences of others.
She came to Chile from California in January 2012. She fell in love with the country’s sense of humor and wine. She wanted to share the love she has for the country. If you’re lucky enough to meet her and are able to decipher her speedy Spanglish, she will delight you with all her knowledge of music, bars, and the best bike routes.
When Pablo arrived in Valparaiso in 2010 few could have imagined that this student of tourism would leave such an impact. Pablo is a highflier, gliding through the skies of Valpo and Stgo. A lover of music, a world class dancer, and never far away from glass of rosé.
Filled with energy this Santiaguina got charmed by the port city and is loving it! This strong powerful woman came to the team as an intern and decided to stick with us. If you want to make her energy shine through the roof a chocolate is necessary.
Julie came from France to do an internship, but ended up being so passionated about her work than a few months later, she was hired. She has a passion for cheese (like all french no?) but also for the tourism industry. After visiting countries all over the world, she decided to stay in Santiago to join the Green Team.
Barbara has been on the team for a few years and studied in the area of tourism. She is now doing what she does best... BIKES. If you don't see her tightening tyres then you will see her cruising around in Santiago on her bici.
Jeraldine has taken to the challenge of Admin and Accounts with flying colours (were talking in work ethics and also in clothing choice). She is a ray of sunshine in the office that has taken to the spirit of the company and her new transportation of choice? Green Bicycle thank you very much.
Joaquin works with us in reception and he's one of the best there is! He speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese and is learning French from Julie! He loves biking and BBQs, and hiking and camping beneath the stars.
Boris is another awesome receptionist, his dedication to LBV is crazy as he bikes 20km to come to work! He is an English teacher in his spare time and has a passion for music, especially guitars. He loves sunsets, find him on Cerro San Cristobal with Casper and a beer.
Fanny is one of our interns, coming from France to work in marketing and communications. It's her first time out of Europe and she is taking in her stride. A lover of Rugby (yes a woman's sport too), and food, French food of course... Even if she is more than happy to try all the Chilean dishes.
Venetia has come from England to spend a year with LBV. She studies Spanish and French at university, and has a passion for all things eco! She also loves skiing and travelling, and can show you all the best nights out in Santiago.
Casper is working with LBV to improve his knowledge of business, and decided to come to Chile because the Chileans he lived with in Barcelona last year were so awesome! Casper loves a bit of reggaeton (he is also a model!), and is a mean cyclist.
Nahiara is a huge asset to LBV due to her sparkling personality and her prowess with Portuguese! She works in all areas of the company and helps us with making the company more accessible to Brazilians.
Mari joins us from Finland, although she has lived in Chile for almost 3 years after she fell in love with the country! She loves surfing and travelling, and speaks Spanish, English, Swedish and Finnish fluently. She also loves wine!
Cesar came to us as an intern, and has now migrated to a permanent job with us! He is LBV's number's guy and he is a magician with maths. Find him crunching statistics to make our company the best in Chile.
