DALLAS, TEXAS

Meet Hector!

Helping veterans for their next mission with Salesforce mentors and training.

I’m an Air Force veteran, Big Brother, Certified Salesforce Developer and Admin, Fidelity Investment executive, and founder of the Merivis Foundation.

Who I Am

Texas son but have traveled all over the world as an Air Force veteran, technology consultant, and IT executive. I founded the Merivis Foundation that supports the veteran community preparing for the next mission through training, mentoring, job readiness, and accessing an alumni network for the Salesforce economy.

How I Got Here

I’m an Air Force vet who served during Operation Desert Storm. I hail originally from San Antonio. After my military career, I earned my bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas and my MBA from Texas State University, and I put them to work at Dell, Salesforce, and Fidelity Investments. 

Where I'll Go

I’m incredibly passionate about philanthropy, which started with becoming a Big Brother but culminated in creating the Merivis Foundation in 2015. In a few short years, Merivis has trained over 50 veterans and military spouses to be Salesforce administrators, and we’re just getting started.
