Hernán Leal Barrientos studied Business Administration at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (Catholic University of Valparaiso). He is a prominent businessman, founder of one of the most reputable companies in the financial area. He discovered in the mountains one of his greatest passions, leading him to be one of the seven Chileans to have reached the 7 summits (the highest mountains of every continent as well as those of the Poles).
Owing to his professional and sports experiences, he was able to develop a model and guide for achieving the most difficult goals in a clear and orderly manner. A clear example of this was May 2018, when he became the first South American who – in only one expedition – managed to reach the Everest summit , and just two days later that of the Lhotse; having attained a continental record. Later in September of the same year, from the top of the sixth highest mountain in the world –the Cho Oyu, he was crowned with a new Latin American record. This feat positioned him as the first Latin American to climb three mountains of more than 8000 mt tall in less than six months.

“Reaching the Summit of the Everest engraved a vision in my heart: We all have inner summits to conquer. That is why I know it does not merely depend on good fortune (or luck) , but on our will power to overcome the mountains that life has set in our way , or else, let them become forever obstacles.
