Jose is a Deputy Director for the NYC Business Solutions Lower Manhattan Center where he helps clients access the capital their businesses need.

Prior to joining Next Street, Jose helped grow his family businesses, Eastern Car Service, and Eastern Luxury Inc., where he gained firsthand experience with the challenges small business owners face. These experiences helped develop a desire to work within economic development and position himself to help create policy changes that can positively affect underserved communities.

On working at Next Street

I joined NXST because I wanted to be a part of the positive impact they are having. Working side-by-side with eager and creative minds, with a passion and sincere desire to help under-served communities and learn from their diverse experience is what keeps me here.

Outside of Next Street

When he’s not at work, Jose enjoys spending time with his three children, is actively engaged as a community board member in Brooklyn, NY, helps Veteran’s access and understand available resources, and is a cigar enthusiast.
