About Xavier

I bring over 10 years of experience in technology management, strategic consulting, and business process improvement in both the private and public sectors.

Before joining Posigen, Xavier was instrumental in the execution of high impact initiatives for the City of New Orleans. It includes the Bloomberg Philanthropies Innovation Team to help generate and deliver innovative solutions to major urban challenges as well as the Rockefeller Foundation 100 Resilient Cities which goal was to develop a plan to make the city more resilient to the growing physical, social and economic challenges.

I co-founded Rebirth Financial, an online platform connecting small-business borrowers with lenders, which was selected by Forbes as one of the best financial technology innovations of 2011.

I hold a MBA in Strategic Management from Tulane University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Florida Institute of Technology.
