CHICAGO, Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Guerrero Media, the executive communications and advancement firm that brings leadership stories to life, is aligning three Latino brands in its portfolio through the launch of a new division focused on the Hispanic market. The alignment will drive the group to harness, amplify and multiply the authority of Latino business leaders.
Initiated by Hispanic Executive, the company's first brand serving the Latino professional market through print and digital media and events, and continued by The Alumni Society, its network of Latino professionals who graduated from some of today's top universities, Guerrero Media has built an extensive network of more than 10,000 mid- to senior-level Latino executives, and is now setting its sights on the next generation of leaders through the early 2019 launch of NextGen Collective, a new, digital-media and events brand.
"Through these brands, we cater to, and engage with, Latino professionals at every stage of their career," says Vianni Busquets, VP of the newly formed division.
By aligning these three niche platforms, the company will be better able to address a larger mission espoused by its full network of Latino executives: to make American business leadership, Latino business leadership.
The company's new Latino-market division recognizes, promotes and develops great executives by telling their stories—many of which have never been told—and by connecting and empowering them through events as small as intimate dinners and as large as national leadership summits. Through the company's Hispanic-focused brands, it has created one of the largest, most effective networks of Latino professionals—a group that heavily influences the future of American business.
The demographic shift toward a majority-Latino population in America is reflected in the U.S. workforce—but, surprisingly, not yet in U.S. business leadership. By 2020, 74 percent of new workers will be Latino; already Latinos account for 17 percent of all workers, aligning with its share of the population. Yet, fewer than 2 percent of all CEOs at Fortune 500 companies are Hispanic, and 3 percent of Fortune 500 company board seats are held by Latinos.
"Companies and agencies that can't find Latino talent either aren't looking hard enough, or are looking in the wrong places, because it's abundant. Latino talent is abundant. Look no further than Hispanic Executive and The Alumni Society to find windows into the breadth of talent that's out there," says Pedro A. Guerrero, CEO of Guerrero Media.
