Features Hispanic Leaders

Adriana Ocampo – Boeing

Over a 20-year time frame, as the typical white-collar professional ascends the corporate ladder, moving to a new company is often the only way to find that next rung. In the event they hit a ceiling, a full-on vocation change might be in order. Adriana Ocampo can claim much of the above—the two-decades of work, […]

Alberto Martinez Magliano – Intel/Microsoft

Watching the Apollo 11 moon landing in the summer of ‘69 on a black and white television in Venezuela, 6-year-old Alberto Martinez Magliano was thunderstruck with a love for science. It was that wondrous event, he says, that spawned a generation of would-be engineers like him. From that point in time, Martinez became a “studious […]

Chief Anthony Rivera – U.S. Navy

As a young man, Anthony Rivera didn’t know about the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), but was aware of the U.S. Navy and the opportunities it offered for direction, discipline and personal growth. He needed such guidance, Rivera being the Southern California-born son of an El Salvadoran refugee father and a 15-year-old American mother […]

Dawn Jones – Intel

After two years as an administrative assistant and another two years working in Intel’s public relations department, Dawn Jones had proven herself a valuable asset—diligent, dependable and always willing to go the extra mile. So when the single mother of two decided she wanted to finish her degree, she wasn’t quite sure how her boss […]

Diana Ortega – General Motors

At the GM Lansing Delta plant in Delta Township, Michigan, more than 3,000 employees are working together to build thousands of Buick Enclaves and Chevrolet Traverses, move them off the line and to dealer lots throughout the country. These are massive undertakings, entailing millions in research and development—requiring a microscopic eye for detail from all […]

Elia Quintana – American Petroleum Institute

Growing up in Arvin, California, a modest town of 21,000 about 100 miles north of Los Angeles, Elia Quintana remembers driving past the hundreds of oil fields that dot the arid hills of nearby Bakersfield, their beams and heads bobbing like giraffes at a waterhole. To her, they were as much a part of the […]

Ellen Ochoa – National Science Board

It’s the kind of question Ellen Ochoa has heard more times than she can count, from fans, press and peers alike: When you first flew into space, saw the earth looming like a huge swirling marble below, more removed from life than you’d ever been before, what did you think about? Those expecting some stirring […]

Ilenia Herrera – Accenture

Ilenia Herrera remembers getting a call from one of her many hires, a young Hispanic American man who had just earned a big promotion and wanted to thank Herrera for giving him his first post-college job. She remembers the young woman whose entire family cleaned houses on weekends, just to earn enough to send her […]

Jose Luis Jacobo Jr. – Boeing

Growing up in a low-income neighborhood in East Los Angeles, Jose Luis Jacobo Jr. remembers struggling with English in school (Spanish being his first language). Surprisingly, his next fluency would come in mathematics, numbers being a “universal language”—and one he easily understood. Nurtured by a supportive family and network of mentors, his abilities in science, […]

Juan Salgado – Northrop Grumman

Juan Salgado was eight years old when he moved with his mother from a village in the hills of El Salvador—a place with no running water and minimal electricity—to the town of Coatepeque, about 15 miles from the city of Santa Ana. For Salgado, the change was bittersweet. He missed the pristine beauty of the […]
