The Strategic Executive Suite is a set of products designed with the medium business leader in mind.

MEET THE MINDS

Hebé Lugo

  • Strategic Minds Founder and Designer of the Strategic Minds Methodology and the Strategic Executive Suite
  • President of Strategic Minds International
  • 20 years of business wide experience in marketing, business development, advertising, acceleration of business concepts, startups, personal brand and business to business strategies

We believe Strategists are strongly influenced by their life experiences; Hebé is a romantic entrepreneur, a dreamer, a global citizen, dog lover, experience collector (and some may say adrenaline junkie), culture enthusiast, nature advocate, photographer and writer/blogger. She is a strategic business specialist and entrepreneur focused on changing the course of business.

Since founding Strategic Minds in 2011, she has established herself as a leading business strategy reference, fulfilling her vision as an entrepreneur: to create an option for medium enterprises so they can transform their working methods to compete with large companies through strategic action.

Among her many achievements the growth of the firm Scherrer Hernández & Co. stands out, firm that she led in marketing until the transition to BDO Puerto Rico was completed. Hebé credits her success to the experience she gained growing within the McDonald's system, both in Puerto Rico and internationally, which allowed her to learn a highly structured and successful business model. Since then, she seeks to create new leaders of the industry and their category.
