Diego Amadeo

Director of Solutions for Retail

Diego is a Civil Engineer with solid retail construction, branded architecture, and facilities management expertise. His background ranges from budget planning and execution to extensive experience leading the development and construction teams for top-notch brands. He joined Corbis as Director of Solutions for Retail to bring a deep understanding of retailers' needs and an innovative approach focused on processes, standards, and technological optimization.

His 20-year career includes challenging projects working with large iconic brands, leading multidisciplinary teams, and managing their opening and remodeling programs across more than 20 countries. To McDonald's, the top player in the QSR segment, he led the Construction and Design Management of its 2,200+ restaurants in Latin America for over eight years. He promoted investment optimization strategies that resulted in a cost reduction of more than 15% in Central America and Brazil. At Wendy's and KFC Argentina-Chile, he served as Development Manager for the 130+ restaurants base, oversaw the leasing negotiation of new locations in the region, and the Construction and Maintenance structures, helping reduce construction costs by 3%. Working on the side of the retail company gave him a particular perspective and understanding of the client, from the look and functionality of their stores to the complexities of their operations.

The key is to fully understand the brand's goal with their customers and become an essential part of the experience they ultimately provide.

Under his leadership, Corbis has already delivered a remodeling program in the Caribbean for Arcos Dorados, the largest McDonald's franchise in the world, operating 2,200+ restaurants in 20 markets across Latin America and the Caribbean, and has partnered with Uniqlo to provide branded architecture as a part of an expansion plan to reach more than 200 locations in the US by 2027. Diego has also assisted international brands such as Tory Burch on permitting and coordination issues and helped the company minimize the change orders during their multi-site program in Paris.

Diego adds value to the company with his analytical skills, expertise in solving challenges, and an engineering approach defined by his tireless pursuit of excellence and dedication to achieving outstanding results.

Beyond his professional side, he takes refuge in his passion for running to look at the city from a different perspective. He has raced in the NY marathon three times, the perfect excuse to tour his place in the world.

While team-work is key for achieving consistent success, innovation is needed for reaching new stages
