Carlos Huereca Is Comfortable with the Uncomfortable

When Carlos Huereca immigrated to El Paso at the age of 13, he had no choice but to get comfortable with the uncomfortable.

His parents showed him how. It was at the dinner table where they often made tough decisions about their furniture business. Carlos had a front row seat to conversations about financial management and talent recruitment. It was during that time when he learned to heed the words his mother would repeat over and over: “Stay focused and committed.”

He still treasures that early education and has used it to propel his career growth. First it was in sales at Dish Network. Then he pivoted to human resources at ADP. Today he owns dual roles as both CHRO and COO at Corporate Relocation International (or CRI).

It’s at CRI where he’s not only able to leverage succession planning as a strategic, competitive advantage for other companies, but also support employees in their own life changes—and help make them be comfortable with the uncomfortable.
