 Alma mater: Johns Hopkins | Location: Jersey City

Where are you from?

Union City, New Jersey; Cuban heritage (parents are from Trinidad and Fomento, Cuba)

What do you do?

Currently, senior advisor at the Gateway Development Commission. I am the former CFO and treasurer of NJ Transit. My expertise is in corporate finance, strategy, and M&A.

What is a career accomplishment you’re proud of?

Oversaw $5 billion operating and capital budgets of the nation’s third-largest public transportation organization and was responsible for over 600 employees in the finance, real estate, information technology, and human resources departments. Transformed and substantially improved the effectiveness of formerly underperforming departments.

In the spirit of giving and receiving, what do you seek from this network and what do you want to contribute?

I’m looking forward to expanding my professional and personal network beyond my current circles and connecting with people who share a similar heritage. I’m also considering options for the next phase of my career and hope to learn more about the experiences and paths others have taken while sharing mine with whomever is interested or might learn from my own.

What is a fun fact about you that you’d like to share with the network?

I’m an avid cyclist and have ridden my bike through parts of Italy and France, including routes taken by the Tour de France in the Alps.
