Hispanic Chamber Prez Makes Most Influential List

 WASHINGTON -- United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) President and CEO Javier Palomarez has been recognized by PODER Magazine as a Business Leader in the publication's annual "Top 75 Most Influential Hispanics" list. The list includes the most notable figures from the political, business, science, education and entertainment arenas. In his role at the USHCC, Palomarez serves as a national advocate, representing the interests of over 200 local Hispanic chambers of commerce and nearly 3 million Hispanic-owned businesses across the country.


The January 2011 issue of PODER declares that "Palomarez has become a key player and cheerleader for Latinos in the business arena" and that he "is focused on promoting government lending for Latino-owned small businesses. He knows better than most the role Latino businesses can play in lifting the U.S. out of the recession." Other Hispanic leaders selected for this year's "Top 75 Most Influential" list include Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, Burger King CEO Bernardo Hees, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez and actress Salma Hayek.

"To be recognized by PODER Magazine is an honor, but moreover it is a tribute to those on behalf of whom I serve – the millions of Hispanic entrepreneurs in America who are transforming our economy," says Palomarez. "I am grateful and proud to represent the interests of the growing Hispanic business community, in Washington and around the nation."

USHCC Chairman Nina Vaca-Humrichouse added: "To have the president of our organization named to this distinguished list after little more than a year in the position is a testament to the leadership he has shown and the results which the USHCC has been able to deliver to its constituents under his guidance. We look forward to further great strides in 2011."
