Vice President of Sponsorship – Juan Ocharan, PMP
Background. Juan started his IT career in 1998 in ERP consulting while raising his family in Miami. He consulted from Miami to Jacksonville for two years when an opportunity to lead an IT shop in Jacksonville arose, in 2004. Juan became an independent consultant in 2013 and has enjoyed the opportunity to travel throughout South America adapting Project Management principles to various cultural norms.
He enjoys raising his boys and being active as a coach and volunteer in the different organizations that they were involved in. One of his roles in the Boy Scouts of America was to lead the troop of 25 boys and 30 adult volunteers during the annual fundraiser selling mulch. He had to negotiate equipment rentals, secure a low-cost option on mulch, and guide the volunteer workforce to achieve the goal of achieving over $10K in net profit.
Vision Statement. As Juan’s career flourished, he realized that he enjoyed being a liaison between IT and business as well as protecting his client’s best interests while partnering with vendors. Some of the characteristics of being a program manager and business owner are the same characteristics needed for the role of VP Sponsorship. The role as the liaison between the sponsors and the chapter requires someone that can achieve goals, guide change, and communication effectively within and across organizations.
Vice President of Programs – Larry Flowers, PMP
Larry was nominated to the Board of Directors, in July 2018 to fulfill the duties of the previous 2018 Vice President of Programs. Larry would like to finish the term in this position. Larry returns to the Board of Directors from a past position of Vice President of Special Projects in 2016. He has been successful in working with the network of Project Management contacts and the local Jacksonville community to find interesting and dynamic speakers over the last six months.
We appreciate your time and support for your PMI Northeast Florida Chapter!
