The Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (FSHCC) has been given the honorable mission to inspire the enhancement of the Hispanic community since 2000.
One way of highlighting our leaders is through recognizing and celebrating entrepreneurial successes and leaders in our communities.
In that spirit, FSHCC recently announced 2019 Top 50 Hispanic Business Leaders in Florida. This award was founded upon successful entrepreneurs who contribute exponential benefits to their communities and the state.
“We are incredibly happy to award recognitions to the leaders in our Hispanic business community and, as a result, the economy continues to grow in the sunshine state,” said Julio Fuentes, President and CEO of FSHCC. “In an ever more competitive business environment, these 50 Hispanic honorees are extremely deserving of this recognition as each of their unique stories and careers were destined to be celebrated and rewarded.”
Some of the individual highlights who made the top 50 list include:
- Tony Argiz, Chairman and CEO of MBAF Certified Public Accountants
- Diana Arteaga, Vice President of Government Relations and Community Affairs for Broward Health
- Josie Bacallao, President and CEO of Hispanic Unity of Florida
