Max brings a unique background which intersects Finance, Technology, and Engineering. He began his Retail Banking career at the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) in South Florida, where he specialized in Premier clients with financial assets in excess of $2,500,000. Subsequently, Max moved to Austin, Texas and spent five years at Bank of America (BoA), where he focused on Small Business Banking relationships. He consistently achieved a Top 10 ranking for sales in the South-Central U.S. Region, which led him to train and develop other banking Associates. While at BoA, he rotated at five different underperforming branches with the goal of enhancing operations and profitability, which he accomplished. Following his passion for technology and engineering, Max continued his career at JP Morgan Chase & Co. in New York City as a Software Engineer. He led the User Interface development effort for the Asset & Wealth Management Fixed-Income Optimizer. Initially written in.NET (WPF/C#), he also developed a Proof-of-Concept UI to initiate the re-write effort into modern technologies such as TypeScript with React.JS and Redux. Max then became the Lead Developer for the new Retirement Center in the Client & Community Banking. He brought to Production a project which was in Development for over a year with no real progress. He saw through the adoption of modern languages such as TypeScript and React.JS with Hooks in the front-end, and Java with SpringBoot in the back-end. Additionally, he played a vital role in modernizing the DevOps process, adopting proper Agile methodologies, and scaling the product from 2 test users, to over 4,600 daily users across the nation.

Max graduated Summa Cum Laude with a dual degree in Finance and Computer Science from Florida International University, in Miami, Florida. He enjoys adventure travel, photography, tennis, and rock-climbing. When not spending time outdoors, Max likes to consume Science Fiction media, Star Wars and Dune being his favorite universes. He also enjoys strategy board games such as Catan, Risk, and Monopoly. Max has been a proud member of the North American Vexillological Association since 2020.
