20 years ago, I joined CEMEX where I currently holds the posts of Director for CSR Director for CEMEX and Director of the CEMEX-TEC de Monterrey Center for the Development of Sustainable Communities. Under my leadership, programs have been developed which, through collaboration with governments, organizations, companies, NGO’s, universities and communities, have benefited more than 6.8 million people in Mexico over the past 11 years. Furthermore, these programs have been recognized by UN HABITAT, OAS, CEMEFI and IDB, among other organizations, for their innovative approach to eradicating multidimensional poverty and empowering women and young people. I am also responsible for ensuring the success of the integrated system for coordinating relief efforts in the aftermath of natural disasters. This system has become a benchmark and has received the Gold Quill Award and Gold Stevie Award.
I sit on a number of boards of directors of both national and international civil society organizations, including the UN-HABITAT World Urban Forum, the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (CEMEFI), the AXTEL Foundation, the Center for Citizen Integration, Red de América and Desarrollo Comunitario, A.C. Red SumaRSE NL and NEO NL, USEM Monterrey y Reforestamos Mexico.
I have a wide-ranging academic background, with a recent Diploma in Model-Based Development from Red América and Tec de Monterrey; a Certificate in Institutional Strengthening (Development Model) from the University of Monterrey; and a Multinational MBA (dual degree) from Universidad Adolfo Ibañez in Miami and the Deusto Business School in Bilbao and a Master degree in Political Scine from McGill University in Montreal. I have experience in both the public and private sectors.
