Carlos M. Regúnaga

Vice President, Buenos Aires Office

Carlos Regúnaga is a renowned analyst of Argentine politics and economics, who has been a senior associate and director of the Argentina Office of the Center for Strategic and International Studies since that satellite office was opened in 1995. He has authored numerous articles on Argentina and regularly heads delegations of Argentine Congress members and judges to the United States as part of an institutional strengthening program.

His experience in the policymaking community transcends the think-tank world and academia. His expertise is rooted in actual government experience, having served as adviser to the president of Argentina (1979–1981) and chief of staff to that country’s secretary of commerce (1983–1985). Regúnaga also acquired valuable experience in the private sector during his career as legal counsel and member of the Board of Directors of several corporations belonging to the Bridas Group (1981–2000) and, most recently, as president of Digital Angel S. A. (2004–2009), a subsidiary of a U.S. company that markets radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions for the traceability of livestock, equestrian horses, and pets.

He earned his law degree from the Universidad de Buenos Aires and did postgraduate work at New York University and Princeton University.
