MIAMI, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Latin Trade presents the Top 25 Businesswomen in Latin America, a revamped annual list of the top women in business in the region.

Many of the names on our list include women who have won awards for their achievements, or have made significant contributions through their leadership skills, such as steering their companies successfully through the financial crisis of 2008 and other challenges in the region.

Their achievements are even more remarkable given that the number of female CEOs in Latin America is still lower than other regions, according to experts. That is why many of our honorees are actively working to promote a more equal business climate through foundations and CSR initiatives for female entrepreneurs.

Some names this year include Mexico's fifth wealthiest person, Eva Gonda de Rivera; Linda Rottenberg, CEO of Endeavor, who has won several awards for innovation, and Isabel Noboa, head of one of Ecuador's largest business groups.

Among others are also Annette Franqui, founding partner of Forrestal Capital, the company that advised Arcos Dorados in the acquisition of McDonald's in all of Latin America and the Caribbean, and Veronica Allende, founding partner at Pacific Investments with a 19-year career in private and growth equity investments across the US and Latin America.

The women on this list include those who have inherited, and manage, some of the largest fortunes in the region, as well as those who have managed and directed large mergers and acquisitions.
