Alberto R. Gonzales Vision to INSPIRE.
Mission to CHANGE.

Alberto R. Gonzales (born August 4, 1955) was the 80th United States Attorney
General, appointed in February 2005 by President George W. Bush, becoming
the highest-ranking Hispanic American in executive government to date.[1] He
was the first Hispanic to serve as White House Counsel. Earlier he had been
Bush's General Counsel during his governorship of Texas. Gonzales had also
served as Secretary of State of Texas and then as a Texas Supreme Court

Gonzales's tenure as U.S. Attorney General was marked by controversy
regarding warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens and the legal authorization of
so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques", later generally acknowledged as
constituting torture, in the U.S. government's post-9/11 "War on Terror".

Gonzales had also presided over the firings of several U.S. Attorneys who had
refused back-channel White House directives to prosecute political enemies,
allegedly causing the office of Attorney General to become improperly
politicized.[2] Following calls for his removal, Gonzales resigned from the office "in
the best interests of the department," on August 27, 2007, effective September
17, 2007.

centered on Procure-to-Pay and Source-to-Pay. These programs are designed to manage large

company operations, global advertising, business development and marketing programs, along
with proposal strategies and preparation. I evaluate new markets for SDI’s service offerings and
monitor compliance with contract administration and corporate agreements. I am also in charge
of SDI’s branding and corporate identity, acting as the face of the company in industry events,
corporate networking and in speaking opportunities throughout the world.

From the advocacy perspective, I act as a Board Member of the United States Hispanic Chamber
of Commerce (USHCC) and lead their Audit and International Committees. I am also Vice Chair
of the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge (IWEC), and collaborate with the
boards of many other Minority- and Woman-owned business organizations. I am very active in
