Prior to joining Vodafone, she worked for Vestas as head of HR in Europe, Africa, and South America, and before that for the consulting firm Penna and the investment firm Boltendahl. Bettina Karsch studied Economics at Brown University (USA) and holds an MBA from the École de Ponts in Paris.
Cepsa has recognized Carlos Morán’s excellent work in the company.

Throughout this time, he has achieved numerous awards for Cepsa's human resources activities, laying the foundations for optimal talent management and smooth labor relations that will help Cepsa to take on the energy transition and become a benchmark in it.
