It’s not easy taking on the leadership role of a team scattered around the world, but Armando Villasana of World Fuel Services Corp. was up for the task.
Villasana, 39, is the director of global human resources information systems and he turned around World Fuel’s team at the Doral, Florida-based company in less than a year.
Through his leadership style, he developed the team’s skills while also increasing engagement and cohesion in the group that admittedly hadn’t been in the best shape.
Javiel Lopez, the head of HR at Quirch Foods, said that Villasana successfully combines business, human resources and technology, demonstrating that HR can both be technical and business-oriented in a beneficial way to companies.
