Juan Moctezuma brings a strong understanding of financial analysis, economics and accounting to CIEE, as well as a “deep thirst for challenge and innovation. Before joining CIEE he was a senior accountant for a software-systems company, where he managed the accounting cycle and implemented financial controls. He has been a tax and accounting consultant for Bay Area small businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies, and he is continuing to grow his expertise by pursuing his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
On his way to a B.A. in business administration at San Francisco State University, Juan got a fast start in the financial world with internships at a venture capital company (analyzing stock options, financials, and intercompany accounts) and at a San Francisco accounting firm.
Juan puts his skills to work in his free time as well, helping friends with a startup company that merges video and statistical analysis to give professional soccer teams the tools to analyze their matches and scout opponents. The young company has worked with every major team in the U.S. and Mexico, top clubs in Europe and the Middle East, national teams at the World Cup, broadcasters, colleges, and even youth clubs.
