ROBERTO KRIETE, CHAIRMAN, TACA (TAC) CORPORATION & (AVI).
January 2011: After steering dramatic expansion and consolidation at TACA (TAC), Roberto Kriete kicked up a gear in 2009 when he engineered a merger with Avianca (AVI) - linking with another of Latin America's well-known aviation families, the Efromovichs.

The sound of a helicopter powering up blares from the mobile phone of Roberto Kriete. The long-time executive and owner of Central American airline grouping Grupo TACA politely excuses himself and, when he is ready to resume the interview, explains his unusual choice of ring tone. Kriete says aviation is in his blood, having dedicated 30 years to transforming (TAC) from a tiny flag carrier with three airplanes and an annual revenue stream of $35 million into an airline group that was generating $1 billion in revenues before its merger one year ago with Colombia's Avianca (AVI).

Kriete is also a private pilot. He spends his weekends flying a two-seat aerobatic airplane and twice-weekly takes the controls of his helicopter, which is parked on the roof of (TAC)'s headquarters in San Salvador.

When Avianca (AVI) CEO, Fabio Villegas is in town, Kriete sometimes takes Villegas out for lunch in the chopper. Having the two top executives of the new Avianca (AVI) - TACA (TAC) parent company flying together in a helicopter may seem risky, but for Kriete it is pure fun. As for work, Kriete cannot think of a better job than running an airline. "This is what I enjoy doing," he says. "The airline industry has been good to me."

Kriete recalls that when he first became involved in (TAC) in 1980, his family owned only a 20% stake, which was originally acquired by his grandfather Ricardo Kriete. Over the next three decades, the Krietes slowly grew their stake in (TAC) to 100% and established a consortium consisting eventually of eight carriers in seven countries. Kriete says he "has always been a supporter of consolidation" and knew that at some point it would make sense to pursue a tie-up with another Latin American airline group. In October 2009, Kriete chose German Efromovich as his partner. Efromovich owns Avianca (AVI), Avianca Brazil (ONE) - formerly Ocean Air (ONE) - and Ecuador's AeroGal (ERG).
