Fellow Biography: 

Julio has been with Pfizer since 2007 and is currently a Director with Worldwide Innovation where he assesses and implements new ideas to create value for Pfizer and helps drive a culture of innovation. Previously, he worked as the Specialty Care BU Customer Insights Lead and with Market Analytics. Julio has also worked in management consulting and in the consumer products industry.

His volunteer experiences include co-chairing the Columbia University Class Gift campaign for his MBA class and participating in several Pfizer-sponsored United Way activities. He has studied and/or worked in Latin America, Europe and Asia. In 2014-2015, CARE Vietnam is seeking new and innovative ways of engaging with the private sector to bring about positive and sustainable change to the lives of those populations (primarily women and girls) most affected by the underlying causes of poverty and social injustices. Over the next two years, Global Health Fellows will be developing and executing CARE Vietnam’s long-term strategy for engaging the private sector. This work will help position CARE Vietnam as a strong partner in private sector engagement and the model developed could also serve as an organizational model for other CARE country offices.

Julio will develop CARE Vietnam's overall strategy for market engagement of marginalized populations with the private sector and workforce engagement at the workplace.

The insights gained during the fellowship experience will help Julio better understand emerging markets’ stakeholder needs and the best go-to-market approaches. With these insights, he will be able to more appropriately identify and develop innovative health care solutions for emerging markets.

CARE’s vision is a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
