Carlos Jr. joined BST Global in 1988 as part of the Documentation team, and in 1990, he became a member of the Design team for BST RDBMIS. In 1993, he was named Manager of the Training and Support teams. From 1997 to 2005, Carlos Jr. was the Manager of the Product Development team – when BST Enterprise was designed, developed and brought to market.
