Background

Summary

Information Services professional with +15 years of experience, working for government and private sector in Colombia as well as overseas. During this time, I have been assigned to many different management roles including, Director/Leader (Communications - ICT, Planning), Business Consultant and Program/Project Manager. In addition to this, +6 years of mentoring experience as lecturer (teacher) enhances my professional background.
As of my academic achievements, I have a Bachelor’s and a Master of Science degree in Electronics Engineering; I also earned a specialist degree in Telecommunications Management and completed the certificate program in Executive Leadership from Cornell University. In addition, currently I am certified as Project Management Professional (PMP® #494406 – PMI®). I can communicate in three languages: Spanish (Native), English (Full professional proficiency) and French (intermediate proficiency).
Academic studies and work experience have clearly defined my professional career path as a whole; with a strong sense of commitment, I enjoy leading and consulting as much as teaming up under challenging and multidisciplinary environments where leadership and execution are most needed.
