  2. 2. <ul><li>I </li></ul>Career Transition –Mauro (MAC) Calcano I was recruited to Timex by the new CEO specifically to drive organizational change through talent acquisition and management development in this mature business. With the goal of broadening the talent pool for better market reach and appeal of the Timex brand, I led the HR effort to break down the existing (and quite rigid) “ silo structure,” which made it difficult to shift talent resources quickly and pursue a truly integrated, multi-market business strategy. I moved on after three changes of CEO. At Goya Foods, I was recruited to play key leadership role in spearheading the talent Acquisition from direct regional distributor to national Big Box Marketer in order to intensify Goya’s mass channel sales with key focus upon Wal*Mart food distribution. Two family Board Members, strongly opposing new mass channel/Wal*Mart initiative, wrestled control of the company from the CEO & COO were ousted, subsequently brought about my departure and that of other senior team members. At Sara Lee International in London from 1995 to 2000, I built teams located in-country across the globe in a complex marketing and multi-level sales and distribution Organization. After completing a 5 year expatriate assignment, in 2000 I was promoted to return to the USA to integrate and build a new teams for newly acquired companies (Chock Full of Nuts and Nestle coffee brands). Despite considerable success in capturing market share, Corporate eventually decided to exit the roasted coffee business. At Marriott, I transitioned after the In–flight food service business was acquired by CaterAir/ Lufthansa in 1995 and was offered a position as the head of HR for .the Varig food customer service in Sao Paolo, Brasil. I preferred to move to London with Sara Lee International. After my expatriate assignment in 1992 with Chiquita Bananas Operations in San Jose, Costa Rica was terminated due to budgetary reasons, I returned to the USA and joined Marriott.
