In her role, Ms. Alvarez will be dedicated to the recruitment, retention and marketing of Hispanic financial services representatives, and will continue to strengthen the company’s ties to Miami’s multicultural community.

Ms. Alvarez is a marketing professional with extensive experience in marketing and public relations. She has been described by USA Today as the face of the new American workforce.
