Norma joined FIND in July 2023 as Chief Operations Officer, responsible for operational excellence at FIND, guiding FIND’s workflow and the organization of all essential business processes.

Norma spent over a decade as a banker in Mexico City and Wall Street. She specialized in risk management and innovation, primarily working on emerging businesses and new financial products. She followed up with a few years as a finance academic and consultant and as CFO for an entrepreneurial venture.

For over a decade she has worked in the humanitarian and environmental sectors, focused on enabling the successful delivery of programmatic strategies through strategic business partnering and the design and implementation of fit-for-purpose operational processes. Norma joined FIND from Greenpeace International where, in her role as interim International Executive Director, she led a significant global cultural transformation, preparing the organization for a new chapter in its fight against climate change.
