TransLattice, an application platform company for enterprise, cloud and hybrid environments, today announced that CEO Frank Huerta was honored with the Jerry I. Porras Latino Leadership award on March 10.
The award was presented by the Hispanic Business Students Association (HBSA) of the Stanford Graduate School of Business at their 16th Annual Latino Leadership Banquet.
The HBSA hosts its annual awards banquet to both celebrate the history and presence of the Graduate School of Business (GSB) Latino community, and honor and encourage leadership in the Latino community beyond the school.
The Jerry I. Porras award commemorates the achievements of a GSB alumnus and his or her contributions to the Latino community. A committee of students, faculty, and alumni determines recipient of the award.
"I am honored to receive this recognition from my fellow Latino GSB alumni," said Frank Huerta, CEO of TransLattice, who received his MBA in 1993. "My business school education at Stanford has been instrumental throughout my professional career. I appreciate the work of the GSB Hispanic Business Students Association and its support of Latino entrepreneurs in industries around the world."
Previous recipients of the award include Mike A. Aviles, former President and CEO of Vignette Corp. in 2011, and Laura Sanchez, Managing Director of Goldman Sachs in 2010.
TransLattice is a geographically distributed application platform company that provides data where and when it is needed, for enterprise, cloud and hybrid environments. This new approach to enterprise and cloud infrastructure results in significantly reduced costs and deployment complexity, while dramatically improving system reliability, scalability and response time, according to a news release.
TransLattice was founded in 2007, and officially launched in August 2010. The company received $9.5 million in Series A funding from DCM, a leading early stage investment firm.
