Mauricio Sanchez is the resident savant at VITALS. His first steps in business started as a young entrepreneur selling Christmas cards door to door in his neighborhood in Bucaramanga – Colombia at the age of 8. His career in IT began in technical support at CCAC in Pittsburgh in 1996. He went on to Ecopetrol to program Visual Basic desktop applications. He became the IT Department Director at Portales High School at the age of 23. At the same time, he worked at the National University where he contributed to the development of their new English curriculum for Spanish-speaking people in Bogota – Colombia. He then moved to New York City in 2001 and got his Bachelor’s in Computer Science degree at Brooklyn College. He was hired by NYU Langone Medical Center as a Senior Systems Analyst and then moved to their Finance department as a Peoplesoft Solutions II Developer. He co-founded an IT consulting firm and developed a successful SaaS startup. Mauricio today supervises and orchestrates all things “tech” for our company.
For Healthcare, Education, Real Estate CRM, and Lead Management clients, Mauricio has been somewhat of a secret weapon offering insights and strategic solutions rarely provided by other agencies or marketing firms.
