Upon graduating from college in 1992, Minerva Arboleya entered the luxury retail industry when hired by the world-renowned Bal Harbour Shops in the marketing department. Taking cue from the best in the business, Ms. Arboleya, learned the ropes of retail marketing and leasing from her years inside the Bal Harbour Shops, working directly for the mall owners, and respected, Whitman family. This experience in luxury retail forged the path to her subsequent position as Marketing Director for Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour, and later Southeast Regional Director. In 2001, Ms. Arboleya was recruited by The Rouse Company, where she served as the first Marketing Director for the $600 million dollar luxury retail shopping center in Coral Gables, Florida, Village of Merrick Park. By joining the company during the construction phase, Ms. Arboleya was instrumental in contributing to the leasing mix and tenant prospecting for the mall, in addition to her senior marketing responsibilities.
In 2005 Ms. Arboleya shifted from the corporate world to the private sector. As a marketing entrepreneur, she worked closely with luxury brands to create and implement their branding and communications campaigns from her showroom office located in the Soho neighborhood of New York. During eight years, Ms. Arboleya was responsible for producing high profile runway productions, each season, for European clients at the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. This exposure forged valuable relationships with international media outlets from around the world.
Since 2010, Ms. Arboleya shifted rolls from pitching media outlets to owning TRILLIONAIRE®, a luxury lifestyle publication geared to affluent individuals in the U.S. and abroad. In addition to the creative role of overseeing an editorial team, Ms. Arboleya is responsible for the day-to-day business operations for TRILLIONAIRE®, and other niche publishing projects. Following the success of the publication, TRILLIONAIRE GROUP, the investment arm, was born out of the desire to connect likeminded investors with business opportunities around the globe. Identifying, courting and delivering investors to high profile projects, real estate, retail or hospitality, is the focus of Trillionaire Group.
Drawing from her early experience in the corporate world, mixed with a passionate entrepreneurial drive, is what has lead to Ms. Arboleya’s successful career.
