The businessman died at the age of 96 Carlos Pedro Blaquierwho led the company for several decades ledesma, the most important sugar factory in the country. Blaquier served for 43 consecutive years as president of the company, since 1970, and more than 50 years as a member of the board of directors.
10 years ago, he asked by letter to the general meeting of shareholders not to be re-elected because of his advanced age.
Blaquier was a member of one of the most aristocratic families in Argentina: the son of María Esther Estrugamou Guillón (descendant of a family of French origin) and Carlos Félix Miguel Blaquier Álzaga. He studied at Champagnat College and the University of Salvador. He was married to Nelly Arrieta Wollman.
The businessman was prosecuted for crimes against humanity in a case for crimes of the last dictatorship in the Ledesma sugar factory. The case is still open, although the businessman could not be prosecuted due to his delicate state of health.
