- Mike Valdes-Fauli has more than a decade of experience marketing to Hispanic audiences
Marketing expert Mike Valdes-Fauli has joined BBVA Compass' South Florida advisory board, adding a fifth voice to the panel as the bank builds its presence in the area, said the bank in a press release.
A Tulane University graduate, Valdes-Fauli is president of Miami-based JeffreyGroup, an independent marketing agency with six offices in the Americas that focuses on Hispanic audiences. His comments on Hispanic issues have appeared in various national news outlets, including the Wall Street Journal and the Miami Herald.
Valdes-Fauli is the fifth member of the board formed last year after BBVA Compass opened a loan production office in Miami. He joins Jeb Bush Jr., managing partner of Jeb Bush & Associates LLC and president of Bush Realty LLC; Alberto I. de Cardenas, executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of Mastec Inc.; Hank Klein, vice chairman of Blanca Commercial Real Estate; and Raoul R. Thomas, group chief executive officer of CGI Merchant Group.
"As we continue to build our presence in South Florida, our board is growing," said BBVA Compass South Florida Market President Roberto R. Munoz. "We're pleased to have Mike join the board because he has more than a decade of Latino marketing and public relations experience and he knows the Miami market well."
