Creative visionary. Problem solver. Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist. With an outstanding record of success that includes being named to PRWeek magazine’s 2012 “Top 40 under 40 PR Executives,” Miguel is the “ROCK” in RockOrange.
Miguel’s world has no borders. Having lived and worked in some of the most dynamic and diverse cities in the world, including Miami, Hong Kong and Paris, his network spans the globe.
This trilingual lover of new cultures first showcased his marketing and communications muscle working for the world’s most famous mouse. During his nearly a decade working for Disney Parks and Resorts, Miguel successfully led some of the company’s biggest media relations initiatives on three different continents, from opening new theme parks and launching new blockbuster attractions, to inspiring more than one million people into action.
As if that weren’t enough, Miguel was most recently chief communicator for Burger King Corporation and its network of over 14,000 restaurants in 100 countries. While at The Home of the WHOPPER®, he led all internal and external communications for the brand’s global turnaround strategy and managed more local, national and global crises than he can count on his abacus. This guy knows how to make things happen.
When he’s not running companies, Miguel dabbles in photography and uses his proclivity for the camera to see the world through different-colored lenses.
