Behind the AIIM logo is a group of passionate and dedicated professionals focused on serving our wonderful community of information professionals.

Together, we are AIIM!

This week we meet Ricardo Fernandez, Manager, Online Content.  Ricardo has been with AIIM since August 2011. He is originally from Kingston, Jamaica and currently lives in Florida with his wife and daughter.  Ricardo came to the US to study aeronautics and completed his college degree and masters program in Maryland. While in Maryland he also reconnected with a beautiful lady he knew from Jamaica - they had grown up together, from the same neighborhood even. How cool is that? They married and the rest, as they say, is history. Let’s meet Ricardo.

What do you do and what do love about it?

I am AIIM’s online content manager. I wear different hats - manage vendor ads, webinar archives, and handle the back-end logistics to make sure everything runs smoothly. I also handle the analytics once the program is done to keep track of the important details.

I love the flexibility to learn different concepts while achieving the goal. It’s constantly changing and I try and stay a few steps ahead.

Describe yourself using 3 words only.

Relaxed. Fun. Family.

What are you proudest of?

My daughter, she’s my greatest accomplishment.  Everyone says she looks like my wife, I say she’s a cuter me.

What movie, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, do you have to watch when it’s on?

Underworld/The Matrix.

Summer or Winter?

Summer, definitely!

Favorite color?

Liverpool Red :)

What do you do for fun?

I host cookouts or play soccer. I played Division 1 soccer in the US, but haven’t played on a team in years. I spend most of my time cooking now. My favorite dish is jerk pork - it’s a very intense flavor. I love to cook for friends and family. Check out some of my favorite dishes on Instagram searching  #chefawerk
