My Professional Experience and Lifeskills

My first attempt at making it as an entrepreneur came about after seeing a void in auto reparation in Heredia, Costa Rica.

 I launched DecoCar, specializing in the sale and installation of windshields, door and window seals and decorative touches for vehicles. Over the years, in response to market analysis and trends, we have expanded operations to also cover car stereo installations, alarms and custom vehicle accessories and additions. 20 years later, DecoCar continues to flourish and provide state of the art responses to the needs of our customers.

When approached by Larry Hernandez, CEO of DLB Group Worldwide, a while back to be the Commercial Director and a partner of the DLB Group in Costa Rica, I enthusiastically accepted knowing that it would be an incredible opportunity to use the marketing skills and knowledge I have gained over my career. Our operations span three countries, Mexico, Venezuela and now Costa Rica, and we live by the mantra of Drive strategically, Live creatively and Believe in alliances. The CEO of DLB Costa Rica, Gustavo Sanchez, and I bring a wealth of knowledge to the company and work tirelessly to deliver results to a long list of satisfied customers. Our hard work and creative brainstorming continue to bring high dividends to the company, and I’ve been fundamental in securing agreements in Costa Rica with clients such as Bridgestone, Fox, Epson and DHL – just to name a few. Each day, usually while enjoying an early morning cup of coffee and catching up on world events, I dedicate time for scouting new clients to add to our portfolio.

I was approached with a tantalizing idea for a software development company and found the concept to be very intriguing. As you probably can imagine, I can’t discuss the details of the project yet, but stay tuned to this space for exciting updates and all the details!
