Vianovo recently launched a new consulting practice to advise U.S. companies and investment funds on emerging opportunities in Mexico as the country opens its oil & gas and electricity sectors to private participation.  

Our Mexico Energy Strategic Advisory (MESA) practice provides a wide range of services including:

  • Market intelligence
  • Policy analysis
  • Joint venture development
  • Strategic positioning with political and business leaders. 
  • James Taylor and Mike Shannon co-lead the MESA practice.

James, who grew up in Mexico, is a long-time advisor to companies and policymakers on both sides of the border, including several Mexican cabinet members and governors. 

Mike oversaw Vianovo’s groundbreaking, in-depth polls on Mexico (2013, 2012) and has advised energy companies in both the U.S and Mexico. 

Other practice members include Dr. Shannon O’Neil, the Council on Foreign Relations’ leading Mexico expert, and Dr. César Martínez, who previously served as Stratfor’s Chief Analyst for Latin America). Blaine Bull and Billy Moore, two of the firm’s top U.S. energy experts, round out the team.
