I’ve often said that you cannot be what you cannot see, and by showcasing what these women have accomplished, ALPFA is giving the next generation of Latinas an outstanding group of role models to look up to, showing them that they too can accomplish great things in business.
DALLAS (PRWEB) August 15, 2019
The Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) announced its third annual list of the 50 Most Powerful Latinas of 2019. The announcement was made during their annual convention in Nashville, TN. Pinnacle Group Chairman and CEO Nina Vaca was named to the list for the third year in a row, this year at number 4.
ALPFA’s Most Powerful Latinas list highlights the achievement of Latina executives running Fortune 500 companies, departments, and large private firms, along with entrepreneurs of leading global companies. The criteria used to determine which outstanding Latina leaders would be included are size and importance of the woman’s business in the global economy, the health and direction of the business, the arc of the woman’s career (resume and runway ahead), and their social and cultural influence.
“ALPFA proudly recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments, contributions, and influence of these powerful women. Included in the list are women who run multi-billion dollar business lines and divisions in public corporations, private companies, and affect change through their service on corporate and non-profit boards. The Most Powerful Latinas list was created to highlight the incredible impact that these trailblazing Latinas are having on the business world and the community,” said Damian Rivera, CEO of ALPFA.
“The women included in this distinguished group of respected and accomplished leaders are an inspiration to me and so many others, and I am proud to stand alongside them,” stated Nina Vaca, Chairman and CEO of Pinnacle Group. “I’ve often said that you cannot be what you cannot see, and by showcasing what these women have accomplished, ALPFA is giving the next generation of Latinas an outstanding group of role models to look up to, showing them that they too can accomplish great things in business.”
Vaca and all the leaders named to the 2019 list of most powerful Latinas will be formally honored at ALPFA’s Annual Summit and Reception on Oct. 3, 2019, hosted at the Goldman Sachs Tower in Jersey City, New Jersey.
