Jimenez Recognized for Role in Hispanic Enterprise Community

Aug. 20, 2012

The USHCC applauded board member Tony Jimenez, founder, president and CEO of MicroTech, for being recognized by HispanicBusiness as ranking among the online publication's 100 Most Influential Hispanics. HispanicBusiness highlights America's most influential Hispanics in six distinct categories: Academic, Arts and Entertainment, Corporate, Diversity, Government, and Miscellaneous.

"We are grateful for the tremendous contributions of Tony Jimenez," says USHCC President and CEO Javier Palomarez. "He has been incredibly generous with his leadership and guidance and is a powerful ally to our organization, and a paragon of success within the Hispanic business community."

Due to Jimenez's expertise as a leader in technology solutions and systems integration, both George W. Bush during his presidency and President Barack Obama have sought his advice regarding matters of economic importance. He currently serves as an adviser to the Obama administration on the U.S. Department of Commerce National Advisory Council on Minority Business Enterprise.

In addition to being recognized in this latest article, HispanicBusiness previously ranked Jimenez's company as the No. 1 Fastest-Growing Hispanic-Owned Business (2009-2011). Other recent accolades include being highlighted as the No. 1 Fastest-Growing Solutions Provider in the U.S., and the National "Public Sector Integrator of the Year." A leader in its field, MicroTech ranks No. 1 in revenue on Washington Technology's Fast 50 List with a $330 million increase in revenue since 2007. This is MicroTech's fourth consecutive year on the prestigious list.

"The USHCC's board is made up of highly respected and successful Hispanic business leaders from across the nation and HispanicBusiness' acknowledgement of our very own Tony Jimenez further illustrates the value of our leadership," Palomarez adds. "We applaud HispanicBusiness for making the work of phenomenal and inspiring individuals like Tony Jimenez even more widely recognized and for their tireless efforts to increase the profile of Hispanic business -- the fastest-growing entrepreneurial segment in America."
