Salvador P. Gavilan dedicated his life to achieving his Mechanical Engineering degree so he could satisfy his desire to work in industries tied to car manufacturing. His first job came at General Motors when he was barely 18 years old, and from there, he spent the next 32 years tied to the automotive industry.
His passion for car racing eventually came to light, when he started to work for Mobil Oil Corporation where he spent 21 years closely involved with engines, car manufacturers, and finally getting involved with Formula 1 and being appointed Formula 1 Coordinator at Mobil Headquarters. Having raced sports cars for few years, Salvador was not only fully dedicated to his job, but he was enjoying his work, his assignments, his life, and his travels around the world to supervise activities during Formula 1-weekend races.
Salvador went to get his Master’s degree on Business Administration at the University of Washington, in Seattle, Wa. a degree that eventually helped him work with his wife’s Corporate Travel Business after he decided to retire from Mobil Oil Corporation. He spent the next 7 years as the Financial Manager.
Salvador‘s life has always been about accomplishments and ethical work. He decided to obtain his Real Estate License late in life, with the purpose to interact with people and prove his Human Relations capabilities, his Integrity, and his dedication to help others. He believes Real Estate is about Knowledge and communications.
