1996- Ms. Lilly Cabrera.
Lilly Cabrera, founder, and director of LILLY + Associates International came to Miami in 1979 from Peru. With three children to support, Ms. Lilly (as her employees affectionately call her) began working as soon as she could, putting in long hours waiting tables and cleaning apartments and offices. When Ms. Lilly was thinking about what kind of career to follow, she remembered what her father told her, “There’s always something that has to be shipped.”
Ms. Lilly found her first job in the trade sector as a receptionist at a freight forwarding company and learned everything she could from the ground up. After working in the industry for decades, Ms. Lilly realized that international trade was expanding rapidly in Miami. With tremendous foresight, she decided to use her lifetime savings and skills in international trade to start her own company with her son Nelson R. Cabrera in 1996.
Ms. Lilly retired in 2014 and is now enjoying her grandkids and great-grandkids in Miami Florida.
