My Background

From a very early age, the relationship between sales and marketing has always fascinated me. I started my career as a sales and marketing professional back in Venezuela, working for Venoco Industries, the country's number one motor oil producer at the time. I emigrated to the United States in 2011 and continued with my career in sales as a certified financial services and insurance agent. I graduated with a Marketing degree from Kennesaw State University in the state of Georgia and then moved on to be part of the sales management team at World 50, a company that creates private peer communities enabling CEOs and C-level executives at globally respected organizations, all averaging more than $30 billion in revenue, to connect and stay ahead.

Why I Work Here

I have a passion for learning and growing businesses. At KATALYST, I have the privilege of doing both by contributing to the development and promotion of the most exciting and influential conversations in the world between brilliant academic leaders and top executives at world-renown corporations from around the globe.

About Me

I'm happily married to a beautiful wife, also from Venezuela, who leads the marketing department for a healthcare company. I'm a proud father of a daughter and a baby boy on the way. I am a man of many hobbies, most notable of which are cycling, outdoor cooking, clay shooting, and any DIY project available while always listening to a good scary podcast.
