Meet Paulo Ortega
An ongoing series from The Alumni Society spotlighting its impressive members
Alma mater: UCLA | Location: San Mateo, California (Bay Area)
Where are you from?
I am Latino and originally from Santiago, Chile.
What do you do?
I am currently consulting for a retail company in Chile in a remote capacity. I am assisting them with strategy and business development, new product development, and market research. However, I am actively searching for a role in business development, sales, consulting, or banking. I would love to connect with people with experience in those roles.
What is a career accomplishment you’re proud of?
This is a tough question. I was a successful broker in Manhattan, New York, which is a highly competitive environment. I managed to build a team from the ground up and lead it to success.
In the spirit of giving and receiving, what do you seek from this network and what do you want to contribute?
I’d like to connect with other Latinos to foster a collaborative environment. By leveraging our combined connections and networks, we can offer mutual support and potentially help each other land the roles we aspire to. Sharing insights, opportunities, and resources can only strengthen our professional journeys.
What is a fun fact about you that you’d like to share with the network?
I love to paint. I actually created most of my artwork hanging on my walls.
