Director of Business Operations
Wilitza oversees the company’s operations worldwide while working with CEO André Wolper on execution of business plans, special projects, marketing, and promotion of sales efforts. In other words, she wears many hats to get many different things done.
Her responsibilities include all aspects of Embodee’s office in San Juan, Puerto Rico, while supporting staff in its other offices, in Portland, Oregon, and Sofia, Bulgaria.
Wilitza's career began as one might expect of someone with a go-getter attitude: a day after graduating from college, she was en route to New York to work for JPMorgan Chase on Wall Street. There she began honing her marketing, relationship management, and sales strategy skills as part of an asset management sales team.
After several years, Wilitza yearned for her tropical home and returned to Puerto Rico. Before joining Embodee, she worked on the sales and marketing team at a multinational insurance company and then became the operations and marketing director at an investment startup, managing its resort and marina assets.
A graduate of the University of Puerto Rico, Wilitza holds a business administration degree, with concentrations in finance and marketing, and donates business consulting services to a local charity. A “foodie,” she enjoys trying out new restaurants, spending time with her two kids, and visiting the tropical beaches year-round.
