"The impact of Hispanic-Americans to our communities and the nation's economy is undeniable," said Katherine O'Hara, Founder and President of The O'Hara Project. "I look forward to working closely with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to develop a deeper connection with their network's leaders and corporate innovators."
Two-thirds of American jobs are created by small businesses, and Hispanic enterprises are leading this critical growth; starting new ventures at a rate three times the national average.
"We are pleased to watch The O'Hara Project's growth within the USHCC, America's largest Hispanic business association," said Javier Palomarez, President and CEO of the USHCC. "It's a testament to their commitment and the opportunities made possible by our services and network."
