Those who know how the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey operates already know that Carlos Medina and Luis De La Hoz are the co-leaders of an organization that is at the forefront of bringing business issues impacting their members to the forefront.
Now, they have titles representative of that fact.
The SHCCNJ announced Monday that Medina will assume the titles of CEO and president, while De La Hoz will be the chairman.
Previously, Medina served as chairman, while De La Hoz was vice chair.
Their duties will not change — but they will carry them out with titles that better illustrate their authority.
Medina said he’s happy for the change.
“lt better reflects what I do day to day,” Medina told ROI-NJ. “And it enables Luis to have more oversight of the board and the vision of the chamber, so he’s empowered to do more things.
“It effectively uses our talents more efficiently.”
De La Hoz welcomed the change and was quick to acknowledge the efforts and influence Medina has had since taking over the chamber in 2012.
“Our vision, strategy and main goal is to continue the growth we have had in the past years and to seek new and innovative ways to foster success for thousands of small and Hispanic-owned businesses in New Jersey,” he said.
