Director of Operations, Kraus Hi-Tech
I am Ricardo Rodriguez, a seasoned professional with 25+ years in Audio/Video Operations Management, passionately advocating for diversity in the construction industry. As the Director of Operations for Kraus Hi-Tech, I strategically manage services, consulted customers, and built a diverse and thriving workplace culture. My role as Director of Operations at IVCI Inc. contributed to increased sales, propelling the company to CE PRO's top 100 nationally. Believing in diversity as both a moral imperative and a strategic advantage, I've led teams that showcase a mosaic of talents. My commitment extends beyond business to community engagement and education, actively promoting STEM initiatives and mentorship for underrepresented groups. Eager to contribute as an ambassador for diversity in construction, this opportunity resonates with my values. My multifaceted experience equips me with a unique perspective to drive positive change. I am dedicated to fostering equal opportunities and encouraging diversity in every facet of the construction industry. Excited about being a catalyst for change, I envision this ambassadorship as a platform to ensure diversity becomes an integral part of the construction industry's identity.
