Alumnus Tony Ramirez (’02) spoke with the College of Business Ambassadors on January 28, 2015, in the Business Complex.
He spoke about his extensive experience in the business field as well as gave career advice to the ambassadors.
He said that his time at NMSU was enhanced by the wonderful faculty that teach in the Business College. A prime example is Dr. Kevin Boberg who Ramirez said has had a huge impact on his life.
After graduating, Ramirez worked retail for several years and then went on to become a third-party logistics trader.
He currently works as a Supply Chain Logistics consultant for C.H. Robinson which is a Fortune 200 company.
He advised the Ambassadors to get out in the world and experience different cultures, people, and ways of life. He says by doing that himself, it changed his worldview and perspective on life. He suggested they find mentors and meet with them regularly as he has done with various business leaders in his area.
He also advised students to take risks early and take them often. “Figure out what your ‘What-If’s’ are, write it down, and make it happen.”
Ramirez serves as Co-President of the NMSU El Paso Alumni Chapter and volunteers as a youth basketball coach for the YMCA. Tony also serves on the leadership team for the men’s ACTS retreats at Queen of Peace Catholic Church.
He has a Bachelor of Business Administration from NMSU and an MBA from University of Texas-Arlington.
