David J. Osio is the founder and CEO of the Davos Financial Group of companies in Venezuela. Since its inception in 1993, Davos has been committed to providing financial advice to an exclusive group of customers. Working at the helm of Davos, Osio has propelled the company’s profitability, thus allowing him to strategically position several independent and licensed companies in cities around the world including New York, Miami, Geneva, and Panama.
Osio embarked on his stellar career in 1981, when he managed the coffee export program as president and CEO of OPED Enterprise. He moved on to another executive position in LETCO COMMERCIAL COMPANIES where he structured marketing programs for various industrial products in the United States; his efforts quickly raised him to the highest ranks of the company.
In 1984, Osio ventured into banking law by joining the Caracas law firm MGO. His position at MGO put him in charge of corporate clients such as Ferro Corporation and Consolidated Bank. Bolstered by the experience that he gained at MGO, his past experience as Legal Advisor, and his deep knowledge of the banking industry, Osio was offered a leading role in the Private Banking Division of Banco Latino International (BLI) in Miami—within two years of his appointment he was promoted to be the Vice President of Banking Commercial.
During Osio’s term as Vice President, the company’s customer portfolio increased significantly in value, thus positioning the bank as an international player of standing. Following his brilliant stint with BLI, Osio ventured out on his own to form the Davos Financial Group of Companies in 1993. Today, the Davos group is a successful name, both in areas of financial prowess and social responsibility.
The Davos group’s success lies in Osio’s ability to develop each of the companies as a financial boutique offering tailored services exclusive to each client’s needs and expectations. He attributes this acumen to his training with Swiss Bank Corporation and the American Banking Association.
In addition to financial success, Osio’s group of companies have strived to maintain enduring corporate responsibility. To that end, Davos companies have collaborated with non-profits supporting the arts and culture. Some other beneficiaries of Davos are MISO (Miami Symphony Orchestra), Children’s Orthopedic Foundation, UMA Foundation, and Fundana Foundation, to name a few.
The economic opportunities and charitable contributions made by David Osio and Davos have been lauded through several international awards including the Medal of Honor from the United States Congress; South Florida Business Leaders 2009; Movers and Shakers 2009; “Best Offshore Corporate Service Provider” by the magazine New Europe; and the 2014 Miami Award Winner in a program that honors and recognizes the achievements and positive contributions of companies in the Miami area.
Osio is a graduate of the Catholic University Andres Bello, Venezuela. He also has a specialized degree in International Banking Law (Advanced Management Program) from Estudios Superiores de Administración IESA. Osio continues to lead Davos and its companies to new heights of corporate and social responsibility.
