NEW YORK, August 25 – Negocios Now announced its 2022 “Latinos 40 Under 40” list recognizing the leadership of young Latinos in the New York metropolitan area. This is the second Negocios Now “Latinos 40 Under 40” cohort in New York City; the first was in 2019.

“Once again, we have an excellent group of young talent from New York on our exclusive ‘Latinos 40 Under 40’ list,” said Clemente Nicado, publisher of Negocios Now. “I can’t wait to meet them all personally and congratulate them on their achievements.

The 40 honorees represent areas of business, healthcare, nonprofits and education, among other fields.

“This was a huge challenge for the Negocios Now team and it wouldn’t have been possible without our growing Negocios Now network throughout the country,” said Nicado. “We worked hard to make this a success.”
