Blackmere is pleased to announce the addition of two new team members: Flor Reyes and Veronica Sommer.
Flor Reyes Joins Blackmere as Career Development Strategist
Florencia (Flor) Reyes recently joined Blackmere as Career Development Strategist. Flor’s diverse background includes 14 years in technical recruitment for large enterprise organizations such as Univar Solutions, Microsoft, IBM, Motorola Mobility, FMC, Ford Motor Company, Celanese, and SAP.
In addition to her technical talent acquisition skills, Flor’s passion is in helping people. “With more than 80% of the world’s workforce dissatisfied with their job, I feel like I have a real opportunity to help make a difference. I am also in the process of becoming an Ontological Coach which has changed the way I see life and my purpose. Now at Blackmere, I have been presented with the opportunity of working for a greater cause in becoming an expert in the world of cyber security, and helping companies find the talent that will protect them,” she said.
When she’s not at work, Flor enjoys another altruistic role: being a mother to three amazing boys. You might also find her playing field hockey or strumming her beloved guitar. Flor is a native Uruguayan, and is fluent in both Spanish and English.
