Vice President - CLA Sales
I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. After completing my graduation from O&M University, I started working as a COBOL programmer. Then I slowly transitioned to the Oracle domain. Till 2003, I kept working for various verticals and was also taking classes as a certified Oracle instructor and I also served as a professor at a university.
In 2004, I became a DBA consultant and worked for many clients such as top banks and insurance companies. During that time one of my customers approached me for a database security software to be implemented for their application. I then started investigating and got to know about Mage (then MENTIS). I approached them to understand the Product, which served as a platform for meeting Rajesh and further turned into an opportunity to represent Mage (then MENTIS) in the Dominican Republic, Latin American and Caribbean areas.
One of the things that I like the most and that I usually tell customers about Mage is that we deliver a higher-quality product than our competitors with one-tenth of the team strength. According to me, this is proof of our efficient work system. All the employees here are approachable and always ready to help.
Apart from work, I love all sports and I am a huge fan of baseball. I am blessed as I had the opportunity to work for 5 years as a Manager in the Operations department of my favorite baseball team. It was a dream come true for me to work there and had been on my bucket list for a long time. Those years were the gift of my life.
During the early days of my career, I started playing Tennis and with my consistency and rigorous practice, I was the best player in my district. I am also good at basketball. Every day, I run a sports show for an hour for a social media channel at 12:30 pm, which has had a profound effect on my Sales role. It’s a continuous learning experience for me, as I get to interact with new people and ideas.
My family has been a solid foundation for my growth especially my father who has always been my inspiration. He still serves as a Police Officer at the age of 86. He has always had the fervor to work, and he is one person that I look up to. I come from a very humble family, but my father persuaded me to learn new things every day, which paved the way for my growth. During the pandemic I completed my Oracle Cloud certification, and I started learning Python. I believe learning is a never- ending process, and that being consistent, disciplined, committed, setting goals and working towards them are the core values that lead to success.
I am an early bird and a fitness freak; I start my day at 5 AM and exercise regularly. Recently I have also cultivated the habit of cycling.
I am blessed with three kids – two girls and one boy. My elder one is a dentist, and she lives in the US; my younger daughter is pursuing a public relations course in Chicago and my boy has taken up a Visual Communication course in the Dominican Republic. We are a close-knit family and I usually make plans to visit my girls in the US 5 to 6 times a year. I love traveling, having travelled to many countries, and I am looking forward to visiting Japan and Australia the next summer.
