This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the successful career of British engineer and oil industrialist Weetman Pearson in Mexico. It explains the five factors that contributed to Pearson's extraordinary success in Mexico which include the revival and renewal of diplomatic, commercial, and financial relations between Great Britain and Mexico and his technical expertise, business acumen, and personal agency. This chapter also argues that the catalyst for the expansion of Pearson's business empire was to be found in Mexico and that the bulk of his substantial fortune was derived from his Mexican enterprises.
