Rafael Aguirre

Throughout Rafael Aguirre’s life, his career and all of the projects he’s developed have been a study of form following function. Coming from a long line of engineers, that’s no surprise. Tinkering with problems, creating efficiencies and solving operational challenges is in his blood, he says. At the tender age of 16, his family supported […]

Randall Long – SageView Advisory Group

If you’re a millennial looking to enjoy the same retirement as your grandparents, veteran advisors like Randall Long recommend having a plan in place before the age of 30. Then again, if you’re really ambitious, you can always do what Long did: invest in a mutual fund at 12 years old. “I saw how hard […]

Ricardo Muza —Pfizer Andean Region

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 […]

Ricardo Sarmiento – Estrella International Energy Services

One thing you learn to love about the land is how it never changes. Or anyway it won’t change much in the lifecycle of a drilling rig and its human operators. Here, in the energy industry, the land is as close to a constant as it gets. But people—whether individually or as part of a […]

Richard Kuehn – EPES Transport System Inc.

Nowadays, almost every office worker’s resume states that the candidate is well-versed in Microsoft programs like Word, Outlook, PowerPoint and Excel. Of course, this wasn’t always true. When the first version of Windows was unveiled in 1985, few people knew how much technology would soon make their lives easier, and even fewer knew how to […]

Richard Todd – Innovest Portfolio Solutions

It’s undeniable: Selfishness is a common human trait. This is why Innovest Portfolio Solutions has such stringent standards for its employees—the Denver-based wealth management firm seeks out those its leaders identify as “stewards.” The exemplary team member is a “man or woman for others; they think of themselves last,” says CEO and co-founder Richard Todd. […]

Rip Reeves – AEGIS Insurance Services Inc.

While Rip Reeves isn’t living a double life, he seems to find a way to separate the personal and professional. The former is characterized by adventurous pursuits that, at the very least, would seem risky. A triathlete as well as a mountain climber who has ascended some of the world’s highest peaks, he’s hoping to […]

Rodrigo Cárdenas Valenzuela – Laureate International Universities

Once completed in early 2019, the 37,000-square-meter Universidad Latina de Costa Rica (ULCR) will be nothing short of commanding. Located in Heredia, just north of the country’s San Jose capital, the sprawling three-story complex will feature stately palm trees and a vertical wall of living grass. But it’s the flags lining the main entrance of […]

Rodrigo Tomas Garcia – Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

Whenever Rodrigo Garcia attends an event hosted by the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), the organization he helped found nearly 50 years ago, he always finds himself fielding the same three-word question. Are you surprised? Between the throngs of young professionals packing the convention center halls and the well-known speakers and panelists, it’s abundantly […]

Ron Ahlensdorf Jr. – Summit Valuation Solutions

President, with a capital “P.” It’s a role that countless professionals, and more than a few politicians, spend a lifetime trying to achieve, often at the expense of their health and happiness. Now that he’s earned the badge himself, Ron Ahlensdorf Jr., head of the Toledo-based Summit Valuation Solutions (SVS), has a dark secret to […]
