When opportunity knocks, Rima answers. That’s what brought her to the U.S. from Mexico at age 17, inspired her to launch a Japanese outpost of a global nonprofit that promotes opportunities for women in business, and ultimately, drove her to Montage.
A gymnast in her youth, Rima’s flexibility has evolved from physical to mental. She is an astute listener and avid learner. Montage particularly benefits from her ability to build strong relationships with people from all walks of life and transform complexities into impactful solutions. She appreciates the agency’s commitment to excellence—and that no one on the team takes themselves too seriously.
In her spare time, Rima chairs the board of CASA, one of the largest and most prominent nonprofit organizations in the Mid-Atlantic region, which provides a comprehensive array of services, education and civic engagement programs for low-income immigrants. She aspires to be a difference maker, as if she’s not well on her way, and never wants to live without her family, her dog, and skim chai lattes.
