Jeanette Chavarria-Torres

The business savvy founder

Age: 26

Title: President

Name of Organization: DCH Construction & Hauling, LLC

Jeanette Chavarria-Torres started her construction-hauling company four years ago at the young age of 22 — when she was still a senior in college.

Chavarria-Torres studied business administration at Dominican University. She was inspired by her father, a Mexican immigrant who lost his trucking business when a major client failed to pay. With her father’s experience in mind, Chavarria-Torres knew that she wanted to gain the financial acumen necessary to run an operationally sound business.

DCH Construction & Hauling is a reliable source for transporting materials to and from construction sites and quarries, and to appropriate dump sites. In just a few years, DCH Construction & Hauling has obtained state and federal contracts and has been certified as a Women Business Enterprise, Minority Business Enterprise, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise and a Woman-Owned Small Business.
