Nina Vaca has been named to the list of 50 Most Powerful Latinas in Business, which the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) published in Fortune magazine March 14.
ALPFA compiled the 2nd annual list, which features Latinas who have made significant achievements and serve in key positions within Fortune 500 companies or large private firms, as well as entrepreneurs who are leading companies that are respected worldwide.
Vaca, who was also named to the inaugural list last year, is the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Dallas-based Pinnacle Group, one of the largest Latina-owned workforce solutions providers in America.
This year, nominees for the list nearly doubled, leading to the inclusion of 15 business leaders who hadn’t been featured before, including Jessica Alba, acclaimed actress and founder of The Honest Company and Honest Beauty.
Along with being published by Fortune magazine, the list is also being published by People en Español and Latino Leaders magazine.
