As a testament to his success, Mr. Rodriguez was named EMC Regional MVP Latin America in 2007 and Microsoft Regional MVP in 2002. Looking ahead, he aims to first become an entrepreneur and then build the company while staying in Mexico. What drives him is the fact that technology can help everyone.
