Hispanic chamber adds Rodrigues, Pinzon, Artiles to board

The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey has added three new members to its board, it announced Friday.

The new members include Ana Rodrigues, a vice president at Banco Popular; Cristina Pinzon, a managing principal at public relations firm Stateside Affairs; and Guillermo Artiles, a partner at law firm McCarter & English.

The new members give the board a more balanced female-to-male ratio and lower the average age, CEO and President Carlos Medina said.

“We are excited that our board has grown to its largest size in my memory — the fact that we have also been able to attract both age- and gender-diverse candidates makes me most proud. I hope more corporations will lean on the SHCCNJ to help diversify their boardroom, as well,” Medina said in a statement.

Chairman Luis De La Hoz said the new members will help continue the chamber’s mission of growing and developing New Jersey businesses.

“All three of our newest board members embody the spirit, expertise and energy needed to be at the table,” De La Hoz said. “Our commitment is to lead by example and that our leadership reflects the best of our talented men and women of our community. We are very fortunate to have them by our side as we continue to strengthen our Chamber #Familia.”
