Jaime's operating experience included serving as CIO, COO, and Board Member of Solaris Technologies, Inc, where he played a key role in the establishment of the entire international supply chain, besides leading the start-up operations and execution of the founder's business plan. He successfully established new operations in new markets in various countries including full cultural integration of the operations leveraging his past experience in integrating multicultural environments to create a cohesive multicultural team.

Jaime oversaw revenue growth from $50 thousand to $12 million in three years.

Jaime's passion and aspiration is to be the type of leader [...] that inspires a sense of belonging to a highly successful organization that truly cares for their members, the local and global community, and lives like an integral part of the business ecosystem they serve.

By the end of his contract, Jaime successfully brokered a strong partnership across the firm's entire supply chain, especially across all internal operations teams and their external contractors. This accomplishment resulted in reducing the already late project delivery time-frame by 13 months and a savings of $8 million.
