Jorge Aguilar

Director of Human Resources

Jorge Aguilar joined World Council in July 2019. Prior to joining our team, Jorge enjoyed a diverse range of professional experiences—from large multinationals in the private sector to small non-profit organizations. 

Born in Guatemala, Jorge received a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire—where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Business Administration. His career started in finance and accounting, but he later decided to take on a different challenge as a Human Resources professional. He is a certified Senior Professional of Human Resources (SPHR) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SCP).

In describing his motivation for joining WOCCU, Jorge states: “From my very humble beginnings in Guatemala, ‘saving for a rainy day’ was in my DNA. My mom and I lived in extreme poverty, but somehow, she managed to give me an allowance of two cents per week. I would spend one cent and save the other one. I benefited from having access to a mobile bank—a van that visited my school once a month. This is where I deposited my very small savings. Access to financial services was very important during my childhood.
