Introducing Raul Martinez Adrover, East Campus Plant Operations Supervisor

 By Samanta Matadin

Raul Martinez Adrover, supervisor of plant operations for the East Campus, is the successor of Jerry Cochran who recently retired after 19 years of service to the college. Prior to Valencia, Raul worked in the hospitality industry for 25 years with extensive experience in the housekeeping department. He has held various leadership positions, with his most recent position being at the Sheraton Hotel, where he worked as the director of housekeeping.

Coming from the hospitality industry, Raul understands the value of good customer service and hopes to transfer his expertise in creating a hospitable atmosphere to the college. To accomplish his goals, Raul shared that it is important that he “empowers his team and provides the necessary skills and tools to succeed.”

Raul shared that one of the best aspects of his career is being a member of an organization that embraces teamwork and supports employees to the best of their abilities. He compares “the closeness of the employees here at Valencia [to] a close knit family that works together for a common goal.”

Welcome to East Campus, Raul!
