Mar Aguilar has been with the Population Council since 1990 when she joined the regional office for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) in Mexico City. In 1992 she was promoted to regional office manager for LAC. In 1998 Aguilar moved to New York City to serve as budget manager and then financial manager in the International Programs Division. She left the Council in 2002 to complete her master’s degree in administration at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). Soon after completing her program of study, she worked for Habitat for Humanity Mexico, where she was director of finance for the 2004 Jimmy Carter Project held in Mexico. In early 2005, she also consulted for two other Mexican NGOs.
Aguilar returned to the Council in October 2005 as financial manager for International Programs where she continued to serve until her appointment as director of International Support in October 2009.
In the years she has been at the Council, Aguilar has played a key role in reshaping the Council’s structure and management. Because of her experience working in an international office as well as in the Council's New York headquarters, she has in-depth understanding of the Council’s operations.
