Albert is currently an Account Supervisor at VMLY&R New York where he works on the Pfizer account. His past experience has allowed him to engage with various industries including telecommunications, CPG, and technology. Albert was born in Boston and raised in Maryland—throughout his childhood he was exposed to new cultures via family travel. It was a trip to Costa Rica in the fifth grade that inspired him to gain fluency in the Spanish language, which he later realized through schooling and study abroad programs in Spain and Argentina. Albert has a degree in Business Administration with a focus on Marketing and Global Business Management from Babson College. He is extremely excited to fuse his business skills with his passion for culture and helping others. Outside of work, Albert enjoys jazz, New York in the summertime, Netflix, and a good book.
