With all the employees we have around the world, we wanted to bring to light who we are here at IIL. Each month we will spotlight an employee from one of our offices. Here, we introduce Rodolfo Ambriz, Managing Director at IIL Middle East.
Rodolfo Ambriz (Civil Engineer, PMP, PMI-SP, PMI-RMP, MS, MCP, and Registered Practitioner of MSP, MoP, and Managing Benefits) is no stranger to project management. With experience working on mostly large to very large projects in Mexico as well as in other Latin American countries, he is a veteran project management consultant and trainer, as well as co-author of Dynamic Scheduling® with Microsoft® Project 2013.
For over a decade, Rodolfo served as IIL Mexico’s Managing Director. Recently he made the gracious commitment to transfer to the IIL Middle East office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. His family still lives in Mexico but this doesn’t stop Rodolfo from supporting the passions of his two sons—filmmaking—by sharing his knowledge of project management.
Together his sons Roy Ambriz and Arturo “Vonno” Ambriz began their careers in filmmaking five years ago and created their own company, Cinema Fantasma.
“I don’t know much about filmmaking, but I help them with the planning and project side of things,” Rodolfo says. Specifically, he likes using Agile methods when it comes to the films.
What used to be Rodolfo’s home office is now their studio for creating products for Adventure Time, Uncle Grandpa, The Amazing World of Gumball, and other shows. They have also done work with Guillermo del Toro who directed Pacific Rim and Pan’s Labyrinth.
Cinema Fantasma’s latest accomplishment is their film Revoltoso which has been selected for sixteen festivals, received five awards, and will be competing at the Brooklyn Film Festival taking place June 2 – June 13.
