Jaime Abello is General Director and co-founder of the Gabo Foundation, in whose creation and management he worked from day one, when the 1982 Nobel Prize winner sought him out to help him realize his idea of offering workshops for practical training and the pursuit of excellence in journalism.

Before joining the Foundation, he was director-manager of Telecaribe, a regional public television channel in the Colombian Caribbean. Abello has dedicated his professional life to journalism, communication and culture. He is a member of boards of directors and advisory councils, including the Global Agenda Council on Informed Societies of the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2010 and 2011, as well as the representation of Latin America, since 2006, in the board of directors of the GFMD (Global Forum for Media Development), an international alliance of leading organizations in support and development programs for journalistic media.
