Sheri Aguirre

Strategic Initiatives & External Relations

Working on Strategic Initiatives & External Relations, Sheri Aguirre leads select CEO priority projects and programs. This currently includes leading internal communications, gaining support for federal legislation that would exempt mitigation grants to homeowners from federal taxation, and identifying opportunities for innovative partnerships to support CEA’s insurance and mitigation mission.

Sheri grew up in Miami and attended Vanderbilt University before heading to Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. She began her career working in Congressman Bart Gordon’s press office, and then honed her communications and outreach skills working for two national trade associations—all while obtaining her Master’s in Communications from American University. After moving with her husband to the West Coast, Sheri lead public relations for 12 years for a software company in the Bay Area, working with customers including Google, Pixar, NYSE, and Salesforce.

Prior to her current role, Sheri worked in other capacities at CEA as the Director of Communications and the Managing Director of Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB). She is extremely proud of her contribution to building the EBB program from a pilot of 8 homes to a well-respected and credible program serving thousands of homeowners.

Outside of CEA, Sheri loves to travel, explore other cultures and trying to capture a place’s essence through black and white street photography. Now that their kids are grown, she and her husband plan to do more bike travel around the world. At home it’s all about spending time with family and friends, eating, drinking and laughing—Sheri loves any excuse to host an impromptu get together.
