Guillen International

Guillén International is an international consulting company based in San Antonio, Texas that specializes in providing international marketing and logistics services. For the last twenty years, the owner Lorena Guillén has been helping small businesses succeed in global markets. With a philosophy of excellence and quality, this Texas-based firm is one of a kind.

Born and raised in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, Guillén is an accomplished business executive, with more than twenty years of senior leadership experience in operations and consulting. Her combination of business vision and a passion for international trade, logistics, and worldwide sourcing has been invaluable to many small businesses in the region.

In 2011 Guillén became a client of the International Trade Center in order to meet growing international trade challenges in her business. That’s when she began working with Sr. International Business Consultant Monica Alcoz, whose consultation helped her identify and check up on various leads for sourcing from Asia that she was later able to develop and build relationships with. On the advice of Alcoz, Guillén participated in San Antonio City Councilwoman Elisa Chan’s San Antonio – Wuxi China Trade Mission. While there she visited and started partnerships with several Chinese factories.

Through the company’s participation in the International Trade Center’s training and events, Guillén has been able to continue learning about new opportunities to grow her business. Commenting on her work with the International Trade Center, Guillén notes: “Utilizing the resources that the International Trade Center provides for all our international needs has been the most evident decision made. I encourage businesses to learn what the International Trade Center has to offer… a world of knowledge!”

In March of 2012, Guillén began a new endeavor: opening her first plant nursery. What started out as a hobby has quickly grown into Guillén Nursery. She is now ready to expand to a 2 acre second location and is projected to expand to a third location next year. The goal of Guillén Nursery is to expand globally. She is already planning to import seeds of some of the beautiful and exotic plants and flowers she saw during her trips through Asia. She is also working on the distribution of Solid Rain, a U.S. manufactured product that has the unique property of expanding the supply of water to plants up to six months. The future for Guillén and her ventures is bright. The International Trade Center will be ready to help.
