Founder & Advisory Board

Born and raised in Cuba, Esther and her family fled to the US in 1964 to escape communism. Through resilience and hard work, they achieved the American Dream, feeling blessed to having made San Diego their home since 1979. She is happily retired there, with her family close by, after enjoying a successful business career in telecommunications. Esther is considered a pay-per-view television pioneer and feels very fortunate to have had the opportunity to help expand the reach of digital satellite television in the Americas and Asia-Pacific .

Esther has served on the boards of public and private non-profit organizations. At the Chairmen’s Roundtable , she has enjoyed being a pro-bono business mentor to San Diego CEO’s for over 10 years.

She was honored by The Salvation Army as a 2020/21 Woman of Dedication in for her contributions as a volunteer in San Diego and is a member of the Tea3 Foundation Advisory Board since its inception.
