Profile Information

about me
My position at JPMorgan Chase Auto Finance was eliminated in September of 2008 due to job reduction. I have a professional banking career of more than 25 years. At the present time I would like to obtain a position within a growing organization in the fields of Accounting and/or Treasury/Operations which will utilize my transferable banking skills, experience and education.
I am also considering the possibility to explore the area of translation in Spanish, my native language.
what is your current, past or ideal job title?
My last job title was Cash Management Associated. I was an Assistant Treasurer at JPMorgan Chase Auto Finance Division.
I do not have in mind an ideal title, for I consider my performance and not my title what will make me to succeed and to lead others.
what languages do you speak?
what countries have you lived in?
I was born in Cuba until I migrated to the US in 1969.
what's your Hispanic connection?
My grandfather on my mother's side of the family was a native of Galicia, a beautiful province in the northern part of Spain, which I love to visit soon.
