The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) has elected new leadership for its national board of directors.
Yvonne Martin, director for strategic accounts of the integrated business solutions team at United Technologies Corp., is the new board chairwoman. Stuart Jara, Managing Director of Inti Associates, is the new board vice chairman.
"Yvonne and Stuart both bring diverse leadership experience and a commitment to NSHMBA's mission to advance Hispanic leadership through graduate management education and professional development," said NSHMBA CEO Manny Gonzalez. "Their commitment will allow us to reach our goals for growth and innovation."
In addition to this new role, career highlights for Martin include her induction into the New York City YWCA's Academy of Women Leaders in 2007, and her co-founding the UTC Hispanic Leadership Forum in 2002. Her achievements with NSHMBA during the last 14 years include helping launch the Women's Leadership Network at the 2010 conference, serving as president of the Connecticut Chapter, and chairing the NSHMBA Foundation Board of Directors.
Jara has been a member of NSHMBA for 18 years since first joining the organization as an MBA student. He has previously served on the NSHMBA leadership task force and on the strategy committee.
Both Martin and Jara have specific objectives in mind as they take on board leadership.
"I am energized by the recent development of a new strategic plan and want to contribute to the organization by ensuring its execution," Martin said.
"I will work with the national office, chapter leaders, members, and my board colleagues to deliver our strategy and our mission, to make our vision a reality," Jara said.
NSHMBA national board members are chosen for four-year terms through a formal selection process.
