Paul's story

Our names are Paul Mendoza and Hector M Treto and we are the Co-Founders and creators of Vib’n. Before crossing paths, we both grew up in “Ambos Nogales,” two sister cities known as Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. Our border communities, although small and divided by international barriers, are united by its citizens’ love for the small-town feel and family environment. They, perhaps, are the reason we have such strong ties to the communities we live in presently. A graduate from the University of Arizona with a degree in Architecture, Hector’s passions are creating and designing not only in the practical sense for Vib’n’s business needs but also in the literal sense, always building something with his hands. Paul pursued International Management at Universidad de Kino in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, but found that his true calling was the development of people. The free-thinker, Paul’s influence in Vib’n is clearly in relationship building. In our professional careers, we have over 25 years of combined experience in customer service and management through which we acquired invaluable knowledge that ultimately, helped us identify where our talents could be of value and insight to others. This, and our love for encouraging others to find their purpose, led to the creation of Vib’n.
