Juan Guillen, LatinTRENDS founder & CEO states “The Latino Trendsetter Award recipients proudly represent 51 million US Hispanics. They have each developed the mindset and characteristics of a leader. They are influential heads of households and play a major role influencing what their children and parents purchase. They maintain high standards in actions and deeds. They are accomplished people on the move. They are Trendsetters who never stop! As acculturated Latinos, they are influencing three generations; themselves, their children and their parents. They are influencing mainstream society while inspiring our youth, who will become tomorrow’s trendsetters.”
