A graduate of the Humber College Business Management program, Mauricio has been managing successful teams for the last 25 years. He is currently Dispatch Manager at Strada Aggregates, where he has worked for the past 15 years. Mauricio says he loves working for Strada because of the amazing team of people he gets to work with everyday!
In his spare time, Mauricio enjoys spending time with his daughters, family and friends. He loves to travel and strives to take his girls somewhere new every year. Mauricio also enjoys playing poker, although he has recently realized he is not as good as he thought he was. A big soccer fan, Mauricio tries to attend every Toronto FC game to cheer on his nephew, Jonathan Osorio, a member of the team. In addition, he has been known to travel to various cities in Canada and the USA to watch his favourite team play.
