Team Profile: Jorge Ortiz

Jorge Ortiz has been with Western Shelter for five years, and currently serves as our Sales Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean. He is based out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and was personally impacted by Hurricane Maria. We greatly admire his work ethic and the commitment to his community that he displayed in the wake of the storm as he continued to serve his customers without reliable electricity or communications. It was only natural that we would feature him in our first team member profile.   

Responding to disaster

This has been a historic month for natural disasters, with Hurricanes Irma and Harvey in the Southeast U.S. and the Caribbean, extreme wildland fire activity in the Western U.S. and Canada, and Mexico experiencing its strongest earthquake in a century. The resulting demand for shelters and relief equipment has been unprecedented.
