CTO – Office of the President, México
Victor Lagunes is the CTO of Mexican Government, his role is two-fold, the first one is to manage the I.T. operations to the inside of Presidency Office; and the second one is to help create e-government federal public policy, focusing on consolidation, information security and interoperability initiatives.
He got his Electrical and Telecommunications Engineering degree from the Tecnológico de Monterrey in 1998. He moved to Canada to pursue an MBA at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, place where he stayed the next 9 years.

Leveraging from this consulting practice, he lent his services to the state and federal political campaigns in Mexico, in 2011 and 2012, respectively, and, from this exposure, he was invited to join the public administration office as CTO to the Office of the President, position he has held since 2012.
He is extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve his country.
