Since 2004, he was asked by the GOP to serve as Chairman of Republicans in Mexico with a clear mandate to get out the vote and also defend the conservative ideology through all outlets including television, radio, print, schools and universities, plus also promote its Presidential candidates; he has been intrinsically involved in the campaigns of reelection for: President George W.

In 2005, he brought together the three Presidential candidates: Lopez Obrador, Madrazo & Calderon, a task that no other organization did before or after. Prior to this, he was the Managing Director for Dallas based American Airlines in Mexico, position he reached at 24 years of age.
