As the Associate Director of Finance & Operations, Hector Lucero provides support on key financial and HR matters for Global Programs. He works closely with the Assistant Vice President of Finance & Operations in support of BU’s global initiatives and projects, with an emphasis on managing financial operations and complex budget models.

Prior to joining BU Global Programs Hector worked at Harvard University for 13 years.

He worked closely with faculty, postdocs, and students throughout all aspects of their employee and research lifecycles.

Hector has a passion for human rights, born out of his experience in 2015 when he found himself on the frontlines of the unfolding European migration crisis, helping migrants and refugees as they reached the shores of Lesvos, Greece. His interest in geopolitical dynamics, distress migration, and sustainability drive his belief that a global approach to education and business is critical for positive change.
