Biography

Cesar Jacobo Calvo Lopez-Peñalver is the CEO and majority shareholder of Pescatlantic Group, a global leader in the tuna industry trade. He also serves as board member of Vonoil Energy Group, Seas Consulting Business, Db+ Co Group, and O.P. Mar Atlantic.

Born on October 22nd, 1981 in Cumana, Venezuela. Cesar is the first child of Santiago Antonio Calvo Barrero and Agustina Lopez-Peñalver and his grandparents migrated from Spain to Venezuela due to the economic crisis during World War II. In 2007, he graduated from the Warrington College of Business obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a major in Finance and Entrepreneurship. The following year Cesar landed his first job at Wall Street, which he considers one of the most pivotal achievements in his career as it provided valuable learnings for him in finance and world relations with consumers.

The Calvo family has always been involved in the distribution and commercialization of seafood. Initially the family business was dedicated to the shrimp and tuna fishery during its first years. And Cesar’s, late father Santiago’s vision was very clear. With his father being a master of commercialization and production techniques of fish; and his grandfather an honorable man for his impressive ethics and integrity. Cesar was destined to tie these values into the foundation of his business.

Despite his strong lineage, Cesar’s ambitions exceeded his family’s expectations. His ambition drove him to officially incorporate himself in the family business of sashimi grade trade with learned knowledge from both family and educational institutions.

Despite his young age, in 2009, Cesar began Pescatlantic Group where he positioned the company as a worldwide leader in tuna grade trade and the American market.

He perceived a need from fishermen and final consumers: a lack of credibility among both parts which became the core drive amongst Pescatlantic group. He believes it is important that both parties involved in every exchange are satisfied. Thus, Cesar’s goal as a businessman had been to become the mediator that guarantees both producers and consumers full satisfaction.

Currently, the headquarters of the companies directed by Cesar Calvo along his partners and agents worldwide are located in Miami, Florida with offices in the Caribbean region. The sea is one of Cesar’s passions. He defines fishing as an indescribable art. As an avid reader fascinated by the human mind, Calvo enjoys history, politics, and motivational books. His life motto is: “find what you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”, an advice an admired person once gave to him. Therefore, he describes himself as an enthusiast and infuses the passion of family, integrity, and hard work into all that he does.

Pescatlantic remains with a unique vision; the company believes in maintaining a flat hierarchy and open doors to create family feelings and lasting relationships. About its future, Calvo’s goal for his business is to continue being a leader in the fishing industry while protecting sea animals and their habitat at all costs.

“One must be on the crest of the wave; to get there one must read very well its waters”. – Santiago Calvo Barrero.
