Top Ten Líderes 2017

Introducing Hispanic Executive's sixth annual list recognizing exemplary leadership and innovation in the business arena

As 2017 draws to a close, Hispanic Executive presents its sixth annual Top Ten Líderes, a list of outstanding Latino leaders who, in the past twelve months, have made a marked impact in a variety of industries, including banking, sports, food and beverage, oil and gas, and telecommunications.

This year, we brought in Javier Palomarez, president and CEO of the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, as our guest editor. Palomarez helped curate this year’s list and provided expert commentary at the end of each feature.

It’s a powerful, exclusive group of ten, who exemplify the finest in our community.
