He is a graduate of Harvard College, holding a BA with Honors in Economics, and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
“I looked extensively for a mobile commerce partner to bring services to the people of Central America and worldwide,” Salume said. “I selected Mozido and joined the Board of Directors because I believe Mozido’s mobile financial and marketing services are the best in the market and can be applied to quickly generate mobile commerce business in the Latam region and worldwide.”
