Our CEO and co-founder Lili Gil Valletta arrived to the U.S. at the age of 17 with only a student visa, a suitcase and not a word of English. as a rising star in corporate America, she quickly became one of the youngest female executives at corporations like Johnson & Johnson where over her 10-year tenure she pioneered multicultural marketing strategies and founded the Hispanic employee resource group, HOLA.
