Max Van Rijswijk
CEO in Panamá
Max is Founder and CEO of Caribbean Riviera; a privately backed-up land investment company engaged in the identification, acquisition, development and sales of emerging land properties in the Republic of Panama.
Since 2006, Caribbean Riviera has been active along the Caribbean coast of Panama…identifying, acquiring and titling prime parcels selected on the basis of its tourism and residential development potential. Over the years Caribbean Riviera has adapted to the cultural nuances inherent to the area, formed key strategic local alliances with local authorities and scouted and acquired the most stunning beach front and ocean view properties.
Caribbean Riviera´s acquisition and development activities are guided by three basic principles, referred to as "The Three P's" -- People, Planet and Profit. Because Planet Earth is home to us all, Caribbean Riviera respects nature by maintaining minimal impact standards, developing zero-waste programs and using renewable energy. Caribbean Riviera treats land owners and the local communities with respect, forming strong bonds through financial support, aid in times of disaster and employment opportunities.
In addition to Caribbean Riviera´s land investments, Max has initiated several tourism and residential projects in Panama, including Kingfisher Bay (Isla del Rey, Pearl Islands), Paraíso Escondido (La Represa, Lake Gatún) and Caribbean Essence (Playa Colorada, Costa Arriba).
Max holds an MBA in Marketing, Finance and Strategic Management from the University of Groningen and the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
