WASHINGTON -- The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility has chosen Cid Wilson as its new president and CEO, it was announced on Monday.

Mr. Wilson, who currently serves as managing director, U.S. Equity Research for Princeton Securities Group, will succeed Carlos F. Orta, who served HACR for nearly eight years.

"Cid has exceptional qualifications, bringing the perfect mix of corporate experience and a decades-long involvement with the Latino community and its organizations," Margaret Moran, chair of HACR's board of directors, said in a news release. "He has a proven commitment to increasing the representation of Latinos in all areas, including corporate America."

HACR, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the country's largest advocacy group for Hispanic inclusion in corporate America, according to the release.

Mr. Wilson pronounced himself honored by the appointment.

"As an alumnus of HACR's programs, I know firsthand the work that HACR does around the country to advocate for greater inclusion of Latinos in corporate America," he said.

Mr. Wilson is a graduate of The Ohio State University and has worked in the financial services industry since 1993. In 2006, Forbes ranked him the top equity financial analyst in his field.

In Nov. 2012, he was named chairman of the board of Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, which advocates for Congressional support for the authorization and creation of the new Smithsonian American Latino Museum.

A lifelong resident of Bergen County, N.J., Mr. Wilson serves on the ethnic advisory board for PepsiCo and the consumer advisory board for Verizon Communications.

He has also been a board member of leading minority advocacy groups such as LatinoJustice PRLDEF (formerly the Puerto Rican Legal Defense & Education Fund), the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Dominicans on Wall Street.
