We want to give tremendous applause and congratulations to LALCC member & 2018 Latino Business Awards co-host Maria Salinas for her recent appointment to CEO of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce!
This is a momentous moment in history for the 130-year-old organization, as Maria's appointment makes her the first women and the first Latina ever to be selected to lead the LAACC. What Maria will bring to her new role is decades of qualified experience in financial planning and business management. The Founder and President of Salinas Consulting, Maria possesses wisdom in leading organizations through their financial plans, reporting, controls & compliance and general accounting matters. Before launching her business, she’s held several finance and accounting leadership roles at The Walt Disney Company for 11 years and has served as Director and former Chairwoman of ProAmérica Bank. Her leadership has extended from Ernst & Young LLP, where she managed and supervised audit engagements as Audit Manager, to her current role as Chair of the Board of Regents at Loyola Marymount University.
Congratulations Maria! The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce is in great hands!
