Manuel Olguin brings more than seven years of international sales and client service experience in the financial sector in New York City and Hong Kong to his role helping school districts build systems and structures that will grow and support great leaders at all levels.
A native of San Antonio, Manuel grew up in a low-income neighborhood and understands firsthand the importance of a quality education. He is passionate about improving access to education and transforming the educational landscape in Texas.
Before joining Holdsworth, Manuel worked as a manager at Accenture Strategy in New York developing strategic, financial and operational solutions for growth-minded clients in the financial services and professional services industries.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and sociology from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, as well as a certification in business strategy from INSEAD.
Manuel also used to be a mid-stakes poker player, but these days you’re more likely to find him fishing, watching college football and spending time with his wife and young son.
