Ofelia Bukantz de la Garza

Senior Human Resource Manager. - PepsiCo Latin America Beverages

Ofelia Bukantz de la Garza moved this year to Miami, Florida from Mexico City, Mexico. She received her BA at the University of Texas and after graduation accepted a job to work with PepsiCo Mexico. She currently holds the position of Senior HR Manager for PepsiCo Latin America Beverages responsible for Corporate Social Responsibility, Awards and Recognition and Communications programs for Latin America. 

Since an early age, Ofelia has been passionate about helping her community and the role of women in society. In this regard she has been very much involved as a member/president of organizations such as: Junior League of Mexico, Red Cross of Mexico, and Executive Women International in Mexico and then globally.

Ofelia is a firm believer that no Organization/Corporation can survive in the business world without having business practices that benefit the community. Organizations have found the need to create programs that can impact communities and the society. We should be working to develop healthier and more responsible citizens that go beyond charitable giving but create long-term solutions. In this sense, Ofelia is a key developer of initiatives for PepsiCo Latin America such as: Building Communities with the World Food Program in Ecuador; Operation Smile in most countries in Latin America as well as Eco Challenge with Young Americas Business Trust (OAS).

In her free time Ofelia enjoys reading, listening to music, travelling and meeting with friends.
