Sofia Iglesias, Vice President, Air Boca, Inc.
While Carlos is the expert on all things HVAC, it’s Sofia who runs the administrative side of the business. She handles the taxes, book keeping, and payroll, and makes sure that you, her clients, are getting the most savings on your AC equipment.
After making the journey from Cuba to America at age 18, she found herself employed at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. Her gracious personality paired with hard work and determination allowed her to quickly move up in the ranks until she was working as administrative assistant to the executive chef. She credits her ten years of experience at the Resort for giving her excellent business management skills and for teaching her the ins and outs of running a business in a fast-paced environment.
Once Carlos had the licensing he needed, Sofia took all she had learned and joined her husband as his newest business partner. Together they have worked for 25 years to grow a successful company based on their family values.
Though paperwork is important, one of Sofia’s greatest roles in the business is laying the foundation for team camaraderie. She considers each member of the team part of the Air Boca Family and works hard to ensure both Air Boca’s clients and employees are satisfied with their work.
The Air Boca Family
Carlos and Sofia are real-life examples of the American Dream. They came to America looking for self-sufficiency and for a better life, and their hard work has paid off. 2014 marked 25 years of owning their own business, an amazing milestone.
But their dream has been so much more than simply running a successful business. They have been blessed to bring up three beautiful children in a safe, loving environment. They are lucky enough to provide jobs and opportunities for family, friends, and members of their community. They have found countless opportunities to serve the Boca Raton community. They have grown both as business partners and as husband and wife.
As both the Air Boca Family and the Iglesias Family have grown, Carlos and Sofia have held strong to their core values that have helped them find success all these years: loyalty, reliability, honesty, and gratitude. Our family is so grateful for your business. We would never have made it this far without you, so, thank you, from the Air Boca Family to yours.
