Jaime Samuel Sánchez Garzón has joined Irving, Texas-based energy advisory firm 5 as an Energy Market Analysis Director in the company’s Mexico City office.
Sánchez Garzón has spent the last ten years working for the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), Mexico’s state-owned electric utility. In his most recent role, he managed the trends and analysis department for the utility, which was responsible for monitoring the market, analyzing risk, forecasting prices in the wholesale electricity market and setting strategies for long-term and mid-term electricity auctions.
“Jaime has invaluable market intelligence from his time at CFE, and a deep understanding of the Mexican utility market following deregulation,” said Andrea Marin, director of the Energyby5 México office. “His expertise in buying electricity for CFE, combined with his analytical skills, make Jaime a significant asset for our clients in Mexico.”
