Zander Scott - COO

Zander leads the operational team in Bluefields, Nicaragua. With a degree in Sustainable Development focused on intercultural leadership and management from the School of International Training (SIT) in VT and an undergraduate degree in Media Studies from Hunter College in NYC, Zander’s work couldn’t be more closely aligned with his studies. It is a dream come true to create economic and professional growth opportunities in Bluefields, where he has called home for the last 15+years. He has put together a team of talented professionals, many of whom he had the privilege of working with over the years.

Prior to opening the eResponders office, he worked with blueEnergy, an international NGO focused on addressing climate change, and founded Bluefields Sound System, a recording studio dedicated to community produced music and media. His teammates describe him as an “out-of-the-box thinker but with practical groundedness and a strong ability to see the bigger picture” and as a leader who “empowers the team to manage and find solutions and consistently shows his dedication to local staff and community development.”

Gisselle Salomon - Virtual Teams Manager

Born and raised in Bluefields, Nicaragua, Gisselle left after receiving her degree in Business Administration from the Bluefields Indian and Caribbean University (BICU) to seek new experiences. She went to the capital, Managua, where she worked as a Sales Advisor in an international call center. Her teammates say, “She doesn’t get flustered when problems arise and always displays a positive outlook when facing new challenges.” When not at work, Gisselle might be enjoying a moment of peace reading poetry or traveling with friends and family.

Ariana Arguello - Virtual Teams Manager

With a degree in Business Administration in Hotel and Tourism, Ariana is laser focused on strategic development to provide the best service to our virtual team clients. She previously was the Project Coordinator for the Innovation Laboratory, which was a combined project of UNICEF and the Bluefields Indian and Caribbean University (BICU). For fun, Ariana can be found doing crafts, dancing, exploring new places, building with legos and doing humanitarian aid. Her teammates say, “She is a fiery leader who doesn’t hesitate to get things down on a whiteboard to make sense of a project.”

Yesibette Davila - Creative Director

Yesibette joined eResponders on our first project, leading the creative process on developing online learning modules. Prior to joining eResponders, Yesibette was a freelance designer and illustrator focused on editorial design for civil society organizations and NGOs in the Autonomous Region of Nicaragua. She is most proud of co-founding Waiku, an Art and Design Center, which made space for connecting the Caribbean and Nicaraguan cultural movements and allowed her to connect with many magical people. At eResponders, Yesibette has attracted and cultivated a robust team of creative talents. She values the opportunity at eResponders to work with a talented multidisciplinary staff and with a company that contributes to job generation in Bluefields, especially for creative talent. Yesibette’s teammates say, “Yesibette is a talented artist and strong leader who communicates with clarity and a unique calmness that conveys confidence and gently guides her team.”

Eric Lopp - Product Manager

Eric is based in Bluefields, where he worked for over a decade as a manager at blueEnergy, an international NGO, after traveling solo around most of South America and living/working in Colombia. This experience unveiled the depth of the human condition, how adaptable people are and that around any corner you may find a genius at work. His teammates credit Eric with “helping to keep our feet on the ground, asking the tough questions and diving into the weeds to understand and develop new systems.”

Kenny Siu - TC Services Manager

Kenny is from beautiful Corn Island, the Nicaraguan Caribbean jewel. Previously, Kenny worked as Director of Tourism for the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua and currently is a Professor of Tourism at the Bluefields Indian and Caribbean University (BICU). When he took a personality test, the test showed that Kenny is a “celebrity”. And, this is true! He has a magnetic personality and an insatiable desire to provide above and beyond customer service. His teammates say, “add a pinch of humor, a splash of modesty and a huge spoonful of dedication to getting it right… and you would have a Kenny.”

Easthampton, located in the Connecticut River Valley of Western Massachusetts, is a thriving small town known for its creative entrepreneurs, breweries and beautiful setting. From a textile mill town to the thriving cultural and arts center it is today, Easthampton invites creative thinking and re-invention. So when the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, Lindsey, inspired by the creative entrepreneurial spirit surrounding her in Easthampton, launched eResponders to meet the urgent needs of organizations and small businesses needing to pivot quickly to the online environment.
