Civic leader and business executive Marielena Villamil has been named the 22nd member of BBVA Compass' National Advisory Board, which is made up of executives from across the bank's Sunbelt footprint.
Villamil is the co-founder and president of The Washington Economics Group Inc., an economics consulting firm based in Coral Gables, Fla. Villamil, who serves on several community boards, earned her master's degree from Vermont's Middlebury College and her bachelor's degree from St. Mary's Dominican College in New Orleans. She will continue to serve on the bank's South Florida board, which she joined last year.
"Marielena has done an amazing job promoting the bank in South Florida during the past year, and she's even attended a BBVA shareholder's meeting in Spain to learn more about the bank," said BBVA Compass South Florida Market President Roberto R. Munoz. "We're so proud to have someone from Miami sit on our national board."
National board members help generate business for the bank and provide BBVA Compass leaders with insight about financial needs in specific markets and industries.
