Ariel Cruz Garcia
Originally from Monterrey, Mexico, Ariel earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the ITESM in Monterrey. At Spaic, his family’s construction and real estate development company, he has led developments from their conceptualization to their sales. Also, he started a new housing division catering to a specific market niche and negotiated partnerships with other developers to undertake ambitious projects. These experiences have sharpened his leadership and management skills, while increasing his practical knowledge on real estate.
Before joining the family business, Ariel worked at a business center leasing company, holding various positions, such as real estate agent, investment analyst, operation and sales manager and project development leader. He played a fundamental role during the company’s accelerated growth period, doubling its size from 500 to 1000 offices in only two years.
