BMO partners with Latino Leaders magazine to launch index of largest Latino-owned companies in the U.S.

In recognition of the power of Latino business owners in the U.S., BMO has partnered with Latino Leaders magazine to create and launch Index 200, an annual ranking of Latino-owned companies in the U.S. by revenue. To qualify for the list, a company can be public or privately owned and must be head quartered in the U.S. with an owner or controller of operations of Latino descent.

“The Latino community has driven almost 75 per cent of the growth in the U.S. labor force since 2010 and adds over $2.8 trillion in total economic output annually. Latino-owned companies are growing faster than most other businesses in their industry sectors, continuing to play an integral role in our U.S. economy.” 

– Eduardo Tobon
Director, Economic Equity Advisory Group, BMO

In addition to sponsoring the Index 200, BMO will host four receptions in Dallas, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles to celebrate the business leaders featured on the list. The events will feature keynote speeches, networking and opportunities to recognize the significant contributions of Latinos in the business world.

The current issue of Latino Leaders features the index, as well as thoughts on the importance of Latino-owned businesses from BMO leaders including Adela Cepeda, Director, BMO Financial Corp. Board of Directors and three leaders from our BMO Commercial Bank, U.S.: Geo Soto, Senior Relationship Manager, Diversified Industries Group; Betsy Erdelyi, Managing Director, Food & Consumer Group; and Henry Del Campo, Senior Relationship Manager, Diversified Industries Group.  

Check out the interviews, along with the full Index 200, in this month’s issue of Latino Leaders.
