About Us

Message from the CEO

Thank you for visiting our site! GradSave is an online college savings registry that helps parents, family and friends save for a child’s future education. GradSave makes it easy for you, your family and friends to give the lasting gift of an education in lieu of traditional gifts at events such as birthdays, Christmas or other holidays. No more trinkets, please!

We fundamentally believe that it “takes a village” not just raising a child but also from a financial perspective. I encourage you to check out our site, and more importantly, get started GradSaving today! To learn more, click here to see how it works or see our frequently asked questions.

Meet the team!

Marcos Cordero

CEO & Chief GradSaver

Prior to GradSave, Marcos had a successful career in management consulting, primarily in the Strategy and Operations Group at Deloitte Consulting, where he advised a variety of Fortune 500 clients. Marcos holds a BS in mechanical engineering from MIT and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He is quoted frequently on college savings and crowdfunding articles. When he’s not busy leading the GradSave troops he is an avid beach volleyball player.

Irma Grondin

Co-Founder

GradSave got started when Irma realized she didn't want any more "stuff" for her newborn daughter. Instead, she thought, “why not have our family and friends share in our child’s special occasion by giving them a gift that would last a lifetime. Even a $10 gift will grow to so much more when it’s time to go to college.” When she's not serving as mom she's hard at work as our legal counsel. Her vision to give Nicole a college savings gift put the wheels in motion for what is today GradSave

Sergio Mendoza

CTO

Sergio's one year old son is the top challenger for cutest fisherman and most likely to study Applied & Engineering Physics and Japanese Language at Cornell University like his dad. With a strong belief that software can be great, and that developers are the world's most powerful energy source, Sergio codes, pushes pixels, and runs the software & technology teams at GradSave.

Erik Nestorovic

Developer

Erik came from Peru to study Electrical Engineering at Rice University, but ended up staying to work at GradSave. Although he spends most of his time coding, he helps out with marketing campaigns and other things around the office. When he's not busy writing software, you can find him playing or watching soccer.

Talia Fernandez

Financial Controller

As our bookkeeper, Talia makes sure we keep good track of all the snacks we buy around the office. She also makes sure all the money from your GradSave account ends up in your college savings plan.

Joseph Lage

Summer Intern

Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Joseph Lage is the newest and youngest addition as an Intern to the GradSave Team. A current Senior at FIU with a passion for marketing, music and cuban coffee, Joseph is always busy coming up with the next great marketing campaign.

Marcel

Office mascot

Marcel is the least productive member of the GradSave team, only coming to work a few times a month. When he does come to work he will just run around the office until nap time. You can usually find him digging up an old bone or trying to chase cars as they drive by the window.

Visit us any time!

The GradSave team works long hours enabling college savings, but we sometimes get out and enjoy sunny Miami. At any point in time you can find a member of the GradSave team on the phone with a parent helping share their registry for an upcoming birthday, to letting off some steam from all the hard work at the GradSave ping-pong table!

If you’re ever in the area and want to say hi, please come visit us at our GradSave HQ and find out what is the latest in college savings!
