The Executive President’s office represents the institution, both locally and internationally, and is responsible for public relations and strategic interagency partnerships at the highest level.

It is in charge of supervising that the City of Knowledge carries out its mission, and reports to the Board of Directors and the Board of Trustees regarding progress in the implementation of strategic plans and operational results.


Raúl Adames

Director de Asesoría Legal

I have been a legal consultant for the City of Knowledge since 2005. I graduated from the University of Panama and I have two decades of experience in civil and labor law, contract management, notarizing, and legal and labor counseling. I have represented the City of Knowledge and Panama before the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.


Nelly Angulo

Legal Counseling Assistant


Jorge Arosemena

Presidente Ejecutivo

Since its foundation, and for more than 20 years, I've had the honor of steering the ship of the City of Knowledge Foundation, along an extraordinary and professional team. Before starting this project, I was a public official at the Panamanian Institute of Tourism, the Presidency, and the Ministry of Education.


Darcy Bodden

Executive Assistant

I provide assistance to the Executive team. At the Foundation, I have been responsible for coordinating the Folkloric Dance Group along with their Director, with the support of the VP of Management and Finance. I've had the opportunity to meet people such as local and international presidents, Nobel prize laureates, singers, princes, and even an astronaut!


Guillermo Castro

Asesor Ejecutivo


Eysel Chong

Gerente de Gestión del Conocimiento

I turn knowledge management into a means to translate the experience of the FCdS through value services. Since 2004, I have been surprised to see the diversity of topics and experiences in which I've had the opportunity to participate. I enjoy fresh country air and traveling around the country in search of contact with nature and our traditions.


Dora Coronado

Auditora Interna

I provide an independent and objective auditing service. I am responsible and impartial. At age 7, I taught a 60-year-old lady how to spell her name. My family is my drive and my inspiration. Shortly after joining the Foundation, they told me there was a ghost in the office. One day, I had to stay late and a lamp went on without anyone touching it. I went home immediately!


Vilma Falconett

Directora de Relaciones Públicas

I love my job of establishing partnerships that benefit the City of Knowledge Foundation. I am very organized with my work and I consider myself a fashionable grandmother who likes to spoil her grandchildren. One of my favorite anecdotes at the Foundation was offering and serving coffee to the now King of Belgium Filip Leopold Lodewijk during his visit to the CdS in 2009.


Julissa Guevara

Gerente de Asesoría Legal

My job is to defend the interests of the Foundation. I am responsible, generous, sincere, and loyal. In 18 years, I've had several roles within the organization. I like to dance, skate, read, and play with my pets. I have seen the FCdS grow and this allows me to see how much we have evolved.


Sandra Icaza

Especialista Administrativa

I provide support to the Public Relations Directorate with my joy, creativity, and spark! It is great that everyone at the Foundation knows my name. A while ago, Mr. Ben chose me to represent Lady Mallet, founder of the Red Cross in Panama, for the celebration of her centennial. I had never been photographed that much before! I love working at CdS, it is the best job ever!
