Vice President, Marketing and IT
Florida Home Improvement Associates
Andres Vargas is from Bogota, Colombia. He studied computer engineering and cybersecurity at University of Miami and proceeded to work in the IT field for one of the largest computer manufacturers, ensuring that newly implemented standard operating procedures were up to the standard of a world class organization.
Passionate about cybersecurity, Andres decided to leave the corporate world and joined Florida Home Improvement Associates in 2008. At the time, FHIA was a two year old company that had a big emphasis on sales and marketing. Andres originally worked as the IT director for the company, but his role evolved and he quickly became the director of Marketing. He also runs a consulting company where he engages with new business owners and helps them grow. Andres is also in the process of writing a book about a subject he feels many Americans do not understand: how credit works.
