Taimir’s natural aptitude for business made her the ideal pupil for her dad to bestow his knowledge of Sales Strategies and Customer Relations at a very young age. Combined with her desire to create a better life for her family in their new country and a passionate work ethic, Taimir joined with her father to invest in her first business venture at the age of 13.
After graduating High School, Taimir attended college where she met her husband and they started their family soon afterward. While raising their 3 children, Taimir worked in various fields including the boating industry, governmental agencies and the legal field. In 2001, Taimir was once again compelled to follow her spirit of entrepreneurship and purchased a pest control company, Pest-Logic. In this new venture, she has managed the implementation of all operational aspects of the business as well as marketing, sales, daily operations, supervising office staff to servicing of all accounts in the early days to developing technically advanced office operations. Taimir is now the Chief Marketing Officer for the company with a goal of breaking the top 100 Pest Control companies in America.
Taimir’s desire to give back along with her success in her pest control company have provided her with the opportunity to get involved with causes close to her heart. Taimir organizes events for immigrant children during the holidays with HALO - Haitian American Leadership Organization and she has also given of her time and energy for the following organizations: NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), The Boys and Girls Club of Broward County, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Free Cakes for Kids UK, Junior Achievement USA, Dolphins Cycling Challenge, The Dolphins Business Alliance and Prestige Club of SW Broward.
Taimir is a native of Havana, Cuba and left the country with her family in 1980 during the Mariel Boat Lift. She was only 5 years old. Her family’s history gives her a unique appreciation for the freedoms of her adopted country and the opportunities they present for all peoples willing to work towards their goal. These shared ideals have drawn Taimir to McWilliams Collective where she has the opportunity to share her natural capacity for business, sales strategies, customer relations, marketing, entrepreneurial expertise and philanthropic spirit on a global scale.
