PRESIDENT & FOUNDER
Eloise is a Miami native and has been a pioneer in South Florida’s construction industry as a specialty floor and walling contractor since 1984. Her dedication to securing construction contracts for women entrepreneurs like herself has left an indelible mark on history.
Having already earned a degree in Building Construction from Miami-Dade College, Eloise founded CIC during her junior year at the University of Miami while in pursuit of her Business Administration degree.
Eloise and CIC quickly made an impact on the South Florida landscape, becoming an integral part of landmark projects like the American Airlines Arena, CocoWalk, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Other projects included the Lawson Courthouse, MIA Mover, Marlins Park, and various terminals of Miami International Airport—the world’s largest airport project. However, her involvement in the reconstruction of Haiti’s Toussaint Louverture International Airport after the country’s devastating earthquake is her personal badge of honor.
Eloise has been an Entrepreneur Organization (EO) member since 2000, mentoring in and chairing its Accelerator Program since inception. She is a member of The Global Student Entrepreneur Association, member of the Miami-Dade College Foundation, board member for the Miami-Dade College Idea Center, and was inducted into the Miami-Dade College Hall of Fame in 2010.
Eloise resides in Miami and is the proud mother to Francisco, her business partner, and Ledah, a law school student.
