Sebastian Velaquez

Data Analyst, System and CRM Administrator

Having arrived in Australia in 2008, my initial job was in construction. After securing my first office position at the Bankstown Community College as a Receptionist, I have slowly progressed advancing my career from Receptionist to Administration, to Support Officer, to Business Intelligence Advisor, to Reporting Coordinator until I stumbled upon Salesforce – with whom I fell in love with! With Karl Nguyen (Salesforce) as a key mentor I obtained my Salesforce Administrator Certification in my first attempt!

My Salesforce experience includes Aussie Home Loans and Western Union as APAC Administrator, where under the incredible guidance and mentoring of Laura Bass I was able to take my Salesforce knowledge and skills to a completely new level. I have since then worked with other charitable organisations.

I have joined the POWHF team to implement Salesforce and with their help, take the Foundation into a new era.
