Principal Officer

Mr. Mauro E. Mujica

BIO

Mr. Mujica has been the CEO of U.S.ENGLISH Foudnation since January of 1993. As an immigrant to the United States from his native Chile, he has a firsthand understanding of the obstacles facing non-English speakers upon their arrival in this country. His insight into the linguistic isolation of non-English speakers, and his determination to help tear down these barriers, made him a perfect successor to the late Senator S.I. Hayakawa, who founded the organization in 1983. Mr. Mujica became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1970. He holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Architecture from Columbia University and was made an Honorary Member of Emmanuel College at Cambridge University, England. He is fluent in Spanish, English and French, has a working knowledge of Italian, and is currently studying Russian. Mr. Mujica was a member of the Advisory Board of the US-UK Fulbright Commission from 1995-2000 and the former Chairman of the US Fulbright Advisory Board of the US-UK Fulbright Commission from 1997-2000. Mr. Mujica is an international architect whose career spans 28 years. An accomplished businessman, Mr. Mujica is a partner and investor in several international firms in Europe and the United States, with company interests ranging from architecture to real estate and investment banking.
