Hector Torres II

Hector is Urban Value’s second hire. When we were searching for our initial group of associates to help us grow, Hector was at the top of our list to capture. We were able to see Hector excel in another retailer and knew he was a perfect fit for us. Hector has been able to provide so much insight to our merchandising pricing and selection throughout the years. He has also taken a lead role in our technology path. Without asking, Hector has stepped up and provided us valuable insights on how to leverage our back office software while guiding us on future enhancements we should be considering. Hector is a great example of “Pave The Path” you want to take with our company. He has proven himself time after time within our company. We appreciate all he does and value his contributions with us. Hector is helping Urban Value Corner Store move in the right direction in our pursuit of growth within the Multi-Family apartment community.
