Negocios Now announces the list of ’50 Powerful Hispanics in Corporate’

The list comprises senior executives and the board of directors from corporations, and it is another effort by Negocios Now to recognize Hispanics' leadership.

Chicago,  June 28- Negocios Now announced today a list of ’50 Powerful Hispanics in Corporate’ as part of its ‘Who’s Who in Hispanic Business’ edition and its annual gala, which will take place on July 19 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park hotel.

The list comprises senior executives and Board of Directors from corporations and is another effort by Negocios Now to recognize Hispanics’ leadership in business and corporate.

“We are pleased to have brought together under the Negocios Now umbrella Hispanic executive leaders who make decisions in major corporations, but we know this is only a modest representation of the Hispanic community’s presence across the country,” said publisher Clemente Nicado.

Launched in 2014, ‘Who’s Who in Hispanic Business’ has recognized several thousand Hispanic industry leaders. The upcoming edition, to be presented during the Negocios Now Gala, also profiles Latinos in Business, Real Estate, Philanthropy, Nonprofits, and Media, as a unique way for this publication to celebrate the leadership of the community, which represents 30% of the city of Chicago.

With Wintrust as the primary sponsor, the edition and the gala are also sponsored by ComEd, Comcast, Peoples Gas, McDonald’s, BMO, CIBC, KONE, and UIC.
