The recent Field study on the state of lobbying activity in Spain, by the Complutense University of Madrid, places Cariotipo at the top of the ranking of lobbying consultancy firms, highlighting values such as transparency, experience and the multi-disciplinary nature of our team.
We are the culmination of 25 years of passionate work since we began our activity, in 1997, as a public relations consultant specializing in health. Our founder Carmen Mateo’s in-depth knowledge of political decision-making made it possible to pioneer the development of Spain’s first lobbying consultancy.
Since then, in our constant striving for excellence and concern for the professionalization and development of lobbying in Spain, Cariotipo has worked with international benchmark-organizations, such as Transparency International, and national institutions (see publications). Moreover, in 2006, we created the popular biotechnological magazine Biotech Magazine & News and, together with the University of Alcalá, the Centro de Estudios de Políticas Públicas y Gobierno (CEPPYG), the first academic initiative for the training of active politicians in Spain.
Jorge and Pepe Fernández-Rúa, the second generation at the helm of Cariotipo, took on the challenge in 2011 of adapting the consultancy firm to the new needs of the market, combining tradition with technological development and new forms of management, to enter other heavily regulated sectors, such as food, energy, mobility, taxation and defence.
