Carlos Quintanilla Schmidt (born 5 August 1953 in San Miguel) is a former vice president of El Salvador under Francisco Flores from 1999 to 2004. Quintanilla and Flores were known as the "dollarizers" (dolarizadores), having introduced the use of the U.S. dollar as the official currency of the country. Quintanilla's successor was Ana Vilma de Escobar.
In November 2017 an investigation conducted by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalism cited his name in the list of politicians named in "Paradise Papers" allegations.
