Tell us about your relocation path. Where were you prior to this?
Alberto: In 2008 I started an internship with PUMA Mexico, I held different positions in the Marketing team managing a variety of exciting projects over a period of five years. I was then invited to relocate to our regional office in Chile where I was Brand Communications Manager for the LatAm region. After 4 years in Santiago, I moved to Boston to oversee our global PR for Running and Training. Now, I recently relocated to Herzo so I could work closer with the Sportstyle BU, as I transitioned to that team.
What do you like about the experience?
Alberto: It’s been an amazing experience, primarily meeting so many new people, different cultures and ways of thinking. It’s allowed me to grow in my career, but also personally.
Did you struggle in the beginning?
Alberto: It’s never easy leaving your home country, as you leave behind so many things, primarily family and friends. Also, when you arrive to a new place, there are so many things that are different, which you just must get used to. I’ve been very lucky that I haven’t done this by myself, but I’ve had a great partner by my side that has certainly made things much easier.
Why did you choose to relocate?
Alberto: At first it was just a great opportunity, I never thought I would be away from Mexico for so long, the original plan was to just be away for a couple of years. It obviously something that most people dream of, and having the chance in front of me, I just needed to seize it. It’s been so fun and as mentioned before, it’s allowed me to know new places, advance in my career, meet new people and different cultures.
