Jose Chacon

Finance Manager

As the oldest brother from a large close family, there were a lot of expectations centered around my educational and professional career results. My family wanted me to serve as a role model for my youngest relatives. I still can remember my younger brothers giving me a hard time because they thought my “crazy ideas” would never be real. Thanks to other incredibly smart people around the world, some of their “crazy ideas” did become true which showed me I was not alone in thinking this way. All these innovators were persistent with their ideas which inspired me to never give up and achieve my goals too.

After graduating from undergraduate college, I had the opportunity to work in the Finance Department of the Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) headquarters. Although finance was not my area of expertise (I majored in Industrial Engineering) I saw it as an opportunity to innovate and develop new solutions. I recall how, having been only 3 months with P&G, I taught myself how to write HTML code and developed a webpage for the Treasury department that served as a model for our global offices. I ended up spending eleven years with P&G working in various roles, facing multiple challenges and responsibilities where I had to make individual and group decisions. One of the most recent challenges was the financial analysis for P&G’s multimillion distribution network where more than 6,000 alternatives had to be evaluated from a statistical and financial standpoint to identify the best solution.

The tech revolution of the Pacific Northwest combined with the desire to experience life amongst the natural beauty of the Emerald City brought me to Seattle. After completing my MBA with the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington, I had the opportunity to join the Xinova Team. Xinova is where I find a passion for the way innovation and creativity come together to transform incredible ideas into reality. I love coming to work to help make a difference for our clients, our society, and our world!
