In 1976, during her freshman year at Georgia’s Macon Junior College, Theresa Maldonado sat down for a meeting with her math professor. She can still picture the classroom, where the window was and how the light hit the floor at her feet. Mostly, though, she remembers the sinking feeling. “The message was, ‘Women don’t belong […]

Due to its excellent Caribbean location, the Dominican Republic has the presence of different and world-renowned chains of fast food restaurants. This led to the McDonald’s chain of fast food arriving in this country in 1996, initially located in Santo Domingo, capital of the island nation.

As a young man, Anthony Rivera didn’t know about the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), but was aware of the U.S. Navy and the opportunities it offered for direction, discipline and personal growth. He needed such guidance, Rivera being the Southern California-born son of an El Salvadoran refugee father and a 15-year-old American mother […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Merrill Lynch is bullish on America. So is Bite Squad, but primarily on Middle America—the large towns and smaller cities that don’t so often appear on the radar screens of its bigger competitors. Hence a land of opportunity for a still-young company that’s filling the niche of delivering freshly cooked restaurant meals to customers who […]

Sofia Zuloaga – Aon

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The legal department might have run like clockwork when, at just 32, Sofia Zuloaga joined the South American arm of professional services giant Aon, the first woman to manage the legal functions of a subregion that includes Argentina, Chile and Peru. But Zuloaga wanted the department to be about more than just cold efficiency. For […]

Sofia Almeida Montero – QBE Seguros Colonial S.A.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In a way, Sofia Almeida Montero’s career started with a lie—however white and well-intentioned. When she was 18, Almeida arrived at what would be her “alma mater” to take what she thought was a pre-university political science test.

Once completed in early 2019, the 37,000-square-meter Universidad Latina de Costa Rica (ULCR) will be nothing short of commanding.

But it’s the flags lining the main entrance of […]

Ricardo Muza —Pfizer Andean Region

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s a long stretch from his office in Santiago, Chile, to Quito, Ecuador–over 2,350 miles to the north. But Ricardo Muza, legal director of Pfizer’s Andean Region for the past seven years, has a way of finding common ground between the operations of those far-apart locations as well as in the other three countries in […]

Pedro Frade – HSBC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Diversity has many meanings, and the general counsel for HSBC Brazil Investment Bank and HSBC Group Argentina thinks every single one is important. When Pedro Frade discusses workplace diversity, he’s not just talking euphemistically about employees who are of mixed ethnicity or a certain gender. Likewise, he’s not just using the term in that other, […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In 1980s Bogota, you couldn’t throw a rock without hitting a Renault 4. An economy hatchback first produced in 1966, it remains one of the French automaker’s most iconic models. In Colombia, as in other places, it was everywhere—a symbol of upward mobility in a country where economic stability was rarely a given. So when […]
