President & CEO

The success of the New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is due in part to the generous support of our corporate sponsors,

affiliate chamber members and dedicated elected officials. We want to take this time to extend our sincerest thanks to all our supporters and members for making the chamber what it is today.


Develop stronger and more effective grass roots organizations that are able to assist the growing number of Hispanic businesses in the City to succeed.


Work with the private sector to establish relationships with corporate America that will benefit Hispanic businesses in the New York City.


Work with the public sector agencies, state legislature, Congress, and state executive branch to advocate for laws, regulations and opportunities that promote the growth and success of Hispanic business in New York City.


"Since our inception I have worked hard to form a collective network of influential individuals, public institutions, elected officials and large corporate entities with the sole purpose of advancing Hispanic businesses in New York City. While our fight is far from over, we have made a positive impact in the communities we serve and will continue to do so."


Paving the way to economic development.
