Romina Fernandez

Director LATAM Operations

At the young age of 24, Romi has managed to become an expert in team management and development techniques. She started her carrier as a customer service agent for Blue Cross & Blue Shield where her passion for people and delightful customer service skills led her to get a promotion in only 3 months. Her background in education made her a great trainer and her student´s success proved it. In a rapidly changing environment, Romi was capable of handling more responsibilities and was tasked as the Client Services liaison between EGS and Blue Cross & Blue Shield.


In her Client Services role, she coordinated strategies between LATAM and the Philippines Sites. Romi's responsibilities included accountability for the results of 300+ agents across three GEO's (LATAM, ASIA, and the US.) She delivered exceptional results for the client in her role.


When Alorica acquired EGS in 2016, Romi was assigned to support the Amazon account in Montevideo, Uruguay.  As the Operations Manager, she led 600+ agents and more than 10 staff to deliver insanely great customer experiences. As the Alorica and Amazon relationship grew to include 9 LATAM Sites, Romi was once again promoted to lead the training and development for the entire program. In 2017, she implemented the Next Level program with Brooke Hoover which resulted in more than 80 Customer Obsession Awards from Amazon compared to 15 in 2016. Romi led the design, development and delivery of additional product training for all agents. This project improved results and resulted in additional new business for Alorica.


Romi believes that the key to success is having a strong front-line management team as they are the ones taking care of the people connecting with the customers. Romi attributes her success to three primary skills:  


1. Her ability to continuously challenge the status quo, critical thinking and refusing to accept the “it has always been done like this” answer; 

2. Her adaptability and empathy in a business world where the only constant is change and where three completely different generations are coexisting; 

3. Her passion for learning, being curious, and implementing new ideas which align with the strategy of her clients. 



In her own words:

“I am not a genius, but I have learned from them! My strongest belief, that I had the pleasure of experiencing several times, is that understanding our employee´s needs, challenges, frustrations and goals is fundamental to be a good leader. At the end of the day, every single human being wants to be successful, it´s just about finding out what motivates them and what is preventing them from realizing their full potential. Once you get to connect with them and help them realize you´re in the same boat, even the most challenged employee will turn 180º. It´s all about fluent communication and constant support.”
