Obama Administration Hosts Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Members




DETROIT -- Two executives from Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce member companies were invited to join Obama Administration staff to engage in high level talks on job development and to be recognized as a successful manufacturing enterprise in a rural area.

Linzie Venegas, Chief Marketing Officer, Ideal Group headquartered in Southwest Detroit, participated in a Detroit Business Leaders Discussion hosted by The White House Business Council and Business Forward.  The Feb. 10 discussion in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building centered on key topics of employment, the economy, and job creation.

Vengas was one of only 30 business and civic leaders selected for their consistent, positive impact on Detroit and their demonstrated commitment to the city's revitalization and resurgence in the national marketplace. The high level talks focused on discovering ways the Obama Administration and business community can work together to create more jobs and ensure that local business leaders are aware of available government programs and resources.

Aztec Manufacturing and its Chairman, Frank Lopez, were recognized by Judith Canales, Administrator for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Business and Cooperative Service, for representing a successful manufacturing model that has made positive contributions to the economy and job sustainability in the rural communities where the business is located.
