Academic Year 2015-2016

President: Renato Franco Rosas

Renato is a charismatic leader who lives MMS’s mission. He strives to connect as many people with opportunities as his team and he can. In addition, Renato is passionate about teamwork, leadership and self-development and he shares his experiences as a way to make an impact on others.
Renato’s story with MMS started two years ago as he joined the Marketing Committee and then became Chief of Marketing for the 2014-2015 Academic year. He was always encouraged to continue growing within MMS, and decided to become president to continue its legacy.
With an enthusiastic personality, Renato strives to develop his team and himself into leaders that can share their experiences and continue driving change at Rutgers. He describes his experience of President as the most rewarding and life-changing one of his young career. His main hobbies are to travel, to read, and share his ideas with others.

This Summer, Renato will be joining Goldman Sachs as a Summer Analyst in the Legal & Internal Audit Division, and he was recently awarded GS’s Scholarship for Excellence, something he believes would not have happened if it was not for the growth he had experienced with MMS.


Vice-President: Chris Cuenca

Christopher (Chris) Cuenca is the Vice President of the Marketing and Management Society. Perhaps the most interactive leader you will meet, Mr. Cuenca has been devoted to help grow our great organization. He is a Marketing major with innovative ideas and always sharing his expertise with our members. He first joined MMS in the Fall of 2014 as an active member while networking, volunteering, and sharing his thoughts for future projects. In the Spring of 2015 he became our Chief of Corporate Responsibility working hard with his CR team to engage MMS in food drives, soup kitchens, and donating beauty must haves on International Women’s Day. He founded the MMS Warriors, MMS’s first project in sports as he led the team to a 2nd place finish at the Annual ALPFA Soccer Tournament. He was elected as our Vice President in the Fall of 2015 continuing the legacy from the past year as he once again led the MMS Warriors to another 2nd place finish at the Rutgers Intramural Soccer Tournament.

His passion for MMS is far beyond the soccer team he has led or the activities he has engaged in. He believes the element for success in a teamwork environment is FUN! He has helped bring the MMS culture to our members by working alongside our team to provide engaging, life changing, and fun activities. “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life” – Marc Anthony. Truly Mr. Cuenca works hard as a student and athlete but as our Vice President he is having the best time of his college life! His experiences in the field to date have been as a Marketing Consultant for 2 Great Kids (2014), a Sierra Mist Alchemist (2015), and an intern at White Label Firm this past summer working on the Verizon Fios Direct Marketing Campaign. Chris is a music lover, a sports fanatic, loves Mexican Food, and plays Chess on his free time. If you see him around campus do not hesitate to stop him and say hello, he is a great person you may want to meet.
