In a move aimed at elevating Hispanic representation in corporate leadership, the Hispanic C-Suite Corporate Council (HC3) has announced the appointment of George Herrera as its new Chairman of the Board of Directors. This decision highlights HC3’s ongoing commitment to advancing the development, leadership, and philanthropic endeavours of Hispanic executives, while bolstering their influence within their respective companies, organisations, and communities.

Mr. Herrera, a revered figure in the Hispanic business leadership community, resumes this role of Chairman with a clear vision and unwavering dedication to the cause. “Leading HC3 is not just an honour but a profound responsibility,” Herrera stated, emphasising the organisation’s mission to propel Hispanic executives into top-tier decision-making positions and foster corporate environments that reflect the diversity of society.

Andre Arbelaez, President and CEO of HC3, echoed Herrera’s passion, emphasising the organisation’s commitment to bridging the gap in Hispanic leadership through comprehensive development programmes and advocacy efforts. “Our goal is unambiguous – to leverage the exceptional talents and contributions of Hispanic professionals to drive meaningful change in the corporate world,” Arbelaez asserted.
