Latino Leaders Magazine has worked with the USHCC since our very inception in 1999. We have interviewed and worked with whoever has been at the front throughout the years. We have gone to events where Presidents, Governors, top corporate captains and leaders have addressed its massive audiences. Our philosophy has always been to support the Latino business owners of our community. We need to recognize that when the USHCC came under the leadership of Javier Palomarez, as CEO, and Nina Vaca, as Chair of the Board, the organization gained momentum and started growing tremendously in influence and relevance. It has become one of the most influential organizations in the Latino community of the United States. Over the years, we perceived the leadership of Javier Palomarez as clear, dynamic and strong.

letter from the director

Our first issue of 2018 pays tribute to the most valuable asset any small business or corporation can rely on: employees. Human capital is still the most valuable asset of all, even in the tech era where it’s value is frequently undermined. In the end, people make things happen. That is why we wanted to launch 2018 celebrating the Best Employers for Latinos 2018. This index, which was developed with input of some of the most respected organizations for Latino advancement took into consideration metrics such as recruitment initiatives, employee resource groups, professional advancement opportunities and leadership development programs. We are honored to recognize these leaders in diversity and will be looking forward to showcasing the stories of their Latino talent in issues to come. A special shout out is due…

insuring the latino legacy

“A GOOD ADVISOR WILL WORK WITH YOU TO COME UP WITH A PLAN AND WILL BE WITH YOU FOR YEARS TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE TWISTS AND TURNS OF LIFE,” For the estimated 56.6 million Latinos in the United States, attaining the American dream extends beyond family roots.

Lizzie Dipp Metzger, a financial advisor for Eagle Strategies LLC, an insurance agent for New York Life Insurance Company and a registered representative of NYLIFE Securities LLC, is at the forefront…
