ALPFA WELCOMES NEW CEO DAMIAN RIVERA

Damian Rivera, Chief Executive Officer, ALPFA

The Board of Directors of the Association of Latino Professionals for America, ALPFA, one of the largest and most established Latino professional organizations, today announced the appointment of Damian Rivera as its new chief executive officer.

"After an extensive eight-month search, we are thrilled to welcome Damian to ALPFA,” said Board Chair Yvonne Garcia. “Damian is passionate about our mission of developing Latino business leaders and driving value to our community. Our organization will truly benefit from his experience as a business executive and consultant."

Mr. Rivera was most recently a Managing Director in Accenture’s Resources Utilities practice, where he led some of the firm’s largest utility clients in the Northeast. Mr. Rivera was also Accenture’s Managing Director responsible for the North American Hispanic Employee Resource Group (ERG), a role in which he led the strategic direction of internal career progression for all 16 ERGs across the U.S.

“I am eager to join ALPFA at this exciting moment, when Latinos are taking even larger and more important assignments in so many parts of the U.S. economy,” Rivera said.

Mr. Rivera serves on the National Board of Per Scholas, whose mission is to break the cycle of poverty by providing technology, education, access, training and job placement services for people in underserved communities.

He holds a degree in chemical and biochemical engineering from Rutgers and will complete his MBA from Columbia University in 2019.

Mr. Rivera succeeds Charles Garcia, who has served as ALPFA’s CEO since 2014.
