Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born in Peru and moved to California, when I was 8 years old. After college, I spent four years working for ACG Media, a retail print media agency located in Torrance. I was hired by ViaTech back in 2010.

It’s my job to work with Sales to acquire and onboard new accounts. I’m responsible for managing relationships with top-tier clients such as Taco Bell, California Pizza Kitchen and Kaiser Permanente.
How has ViaTech’s business and culture evolved since you started?
The business has become a lot more technology driven, which I believe will benefit the company for years to come.

I appreciate the autonomy that I’ve been given to conduct business at the Commerce facility.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from working at ViaTech?
The team at ViaTech is very transparent and has played a big role in helping me understand the business – especially the P&L side of the things.
What makes you effective in your role?
In my 10 years with ViaTech, I’ve learned that you have to be willing to change and grow with the company in order to be successful.
