By purchasing bonds and investing in the company, it grew. He sold the enterprise for a total of US$819 million. Experts say that he made a profit of $735 million. This sale brought him great recognition throughout the world.
Australis Seafoods is another one of Isidoro’s investments in Chile. He sold it to the Chinese group Joyvio in 2009 for $91 million. When the infectious Salmon Anemia VIrus (ISAF) hit, Mr . Isidoro took over as the head of the company. The company’s reputation was dwindling, and Quiroga’s input was fundamental. With his prolific managerial skills, the company became a force to reckon with in the fish market. After a decade, Mr Isidoro sold this company. But, despite the sale, he still maintained his membership in the board. There has been rapid growth in the company since then. The world has recognized it for its activities in salmon export.
Isidoro is unique because his entrepreneurial skills are not limited. He is a go-getter because he identifies an opportunity and does not hesitate to go after it. Besides, he has grown through the ranks due to his practical managerial skills.
