In 1977, Mr. Salcedo earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from IUP. He earned his law degree, as well as a degree in Political Science, from San Andres University in La Paz, Bolivia.

Prior to joining Intensus, Mr. Salcedo was a vice president at Earthworm Tractor Company and an attorney at YPFB State Oil Company of Bolivia.

In addition to his position with Intensus, Mr. Salcedo also serves as senior partner at Jireh Resources Company, Inc., which specializes in establishing commercial and industrial relationships, primarily in the heavy construction industry on an international basis.

Over and above the work he does in the business community, Mr. Salcedo has been involved in Christian television and radio for the past twenty years. He currently produces the nationally known Concert of Prayer, which is broadcast in Spanish and carried by nine thousand stations worldwide.

Mr. Salcedo and his wife, Linda, have two sons, Matthew and Michael. They live in Cold Spring, N.Y.
