PRESIDENT & FOUNDER
Named “Entrepreneur of the Year” by the Women’s Executive Council in 2016, lifelong learner Lourdes Mola opened her boutique consultancy firm, Lourdes Mola Solutions in 2015. With 25 years of professional experience in Corporate America, including two decades with The Walt Disney Company, Mola has excelled in a wide array of roles: Sales, Business Development, Marketing, Public Affairs and Corporate Citizenship. Propelled by a desire to fuel business growth in our community, Mola now puts her skills to use empowering others. “I started my own company so I could create an impact in the community and help the next wave of businesses succeed. I know there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach, but I also know there are proven strategies to stand out from the competition and make an impression. I’ve sat on both sides of the table and know I could help them. That was my calling; that was my catalyst. Since that first year, my team has grown and our offerings have expanded, but helping others succeed continues to be my driving passion.”
A respected influencer in the Central Florida business community, Mola has served on numerous nonprofit boards, including the Central Florida Economic Development Commission, Prospera, Hispanic Heritage Scholarship Fund of Metro Orlando and Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando. Mola is actively involved with the Hispanic American Professional Business Women’s Association, Girl Scouts of America, United Arts and The National Association of Women Business Owners. Mola currently serves on the board of the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County, appointed by now Senator Rick Scott and Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis.
A first-generation Cuban-American, Mola has a deep understanding and respect for the influences that ethnicity, race, language, and culture have on society. She takes pride in her community and understands the great responsibility that comes with inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs, business developers and innovators.
When she’s not working with businesses to help them succeed, Mola enjoys spending time with her husband and two teenage children, traveling the world and exploring other cultures.
