About the Instructors

Eloy Leibas Photo

Sr. Recruiter - Business Development & New Digital Business,
BBVA USA

Experienced Recruitment professional with 5 years of success in the talent acquisition, onboarding, and employer branding space. I’m a mosaic of experiences built from four cornerstones: obsession for learning, desire to leave an impact, a creative spirit, and coffee. I view each new day as a challenge to outperform myself and service my clients/hiring managers/candidates better than the day before. After all, how can a Recruiter find a company the best talent… unless they first become the best versions of themselves?

When I’m not striving for perfection, I enjoy spending time with my wife, keeping active at the gym, reading and writing, practicing my Spanish, and brainstorming new ideas.
