Ryder Club (network)

On a cold January morning I had the chance to meet with D. Francisco Trullenque, President of the University of Chicago Alumni Club of Spain and Managing Director of Strategy & Focus, a leading strategy consulting firm.

We met at Mr. Trullenque’s offices, located in a beautiful and very classic building on Almagro street, so that he could give me more details about the Ryder Club network.

And the Ryder Club is just that, a network of the more important university alumni clubs in Spain, whose goal is to “share experience and knowledge.” Interestingly, the Spanish Fullbright Alumni Association is also a member of the Ryder Club of Spain (RCE).


Frankly, the list of university alumni clubsis impressive, but more impressive is the number of interesting events that are organized each month, many times in a “joint” format.

For example:

  • 21 January – Chicago Alumni and Columbia Business School sponsored: D. Francisco Román, Pres. Consejero Delegado, Vodafone ESPAÑA.
  • 29 January – (Barcelona) Chicago Alumni sponsors this event: “El Interim Management en épocas de crisis”, Oscar Perreau de Pinninck – Socio Director EIM Interim Management.

All Ryder events will be posted on the Event Calendar as they are announced.

We look forward to the Ryder Club partnership as beneficiaries and as contributors.

** If you would like to assist one of the Ryder events, please let me know, and I will sign you up and send you a proper invitation.

All the best,

Steven Morales, Pres. Berkeley Alumni in Madrid

  1. Hello – I found this very interesting and would like to learn more. Please advise with whom I should speak to learn more. Alternatively, you can reach me at +34 93.368.4689.

    I would be very interested in having members of the Cal Alumni and Ryder networks join the Ameerican Society of Barcelona at one of our upcoming events.
