The St. Louis Mosaic Project celebrates another milestone as Luis Fernando Campedelli, Executive Vice-President for Human Resources at MasterCard Operations & Technologies, becomes the Mosaic Ambassador Program’s 450th member.
Mr. Campedelli’s broad international experience in the USA, Latin America, Europe, Middle-East and Africa will play a dynamic role in supporting the Mosaic Project’s endeavor of making St. Louis an internationally welcoming hub.
Bill Behr, Associate Director of Employer and Recruiter Relations at Washington University’s Olin Business School, had the following to say of MasterCard’s international outlook:
“Through an active partnership with MasterCard, the Weston Career Center/Olin Business School sees firsthand MasterCard’s continuous commitment in attracting and retaining foreign-born individuals. These actions support economic growth of our region and the St. Louis economy.”
Washington University, among a number of organizations, actively supports the Mosaic Project’s mission to make St. Louis the fastest growing U.S. region for immigration by the year 2020.
The St. Louis Mosaic Ambassador Program plays a dynamic role in this endeavor. Mosaic Ambassadors, such as former Missouri Governor Bob Holden, proactively foster an internationally welcoming atmosphere in the community by engaging in career networks, cultural events, visiting international restaurants, and building relationships with foreign-born individuals. Connecting with the international community and ensuring they feel at home in St. Louis is vital to the Mosaic Project’s success.
