HITEC 100 Overview:

Since 2008, HITEC has compiled a comprehensive list featuring the top 100 most influential and notable Hispanic Professionals in the technology Industry called the “HITEC 100“.

The selection task has not been an easy one, as the number of talented and deserving Hispanic technology professionals and leaders continues to grow at fast pace. The HITEC 100 awards recognition, mentoring and professional development activities are made possible by the involvement and generous sponsorships of our corporate partners and volunteers.

We thank our HITEC sponsors and volunteers for their continued support and commitment to our organization, diversity and the professional development of Hispanic technology leaders.

HITEC’s Executive Leadership, board of directors and advisory board members are very impressed and proud of each year’s honorees. We congratulate and salute each and every one of them for their continued career achievements in the ever-changing global landscape of technology.

HITEC 100 Methodology

The compilation of this list of Hispanic Executives in the technology Industry is a difficult task and a hard decision to make without leaving someone worthy of the final list. We had over 360 names of accomplished technology executive leaders. After numerous discussions, the panel arrived to the final list of the HITEC 100 – Most Influential Hispanics in Technology. A panel, comprised of four judges, was invited to take part in the process of voting and validation the project. They followed strict criteria as the candidates were remarkably accomplished professionals. Candidates were judged on their achievement levels, scope of responsibility and the positions they hold within their respective companies.

For nearly a decade, The Hispanic IT Executive Council (HITEC) has been recognizing the nation’s Most Influential Hispanics in the technology Industry. The core mission of the HITEC 100 Nominations is to highlight and showcase outstanding professionals who have excelled in the business of technology, role models who inspire young people to pursue careers in technology and motivate professionals continue to excel and connect with the Hispanic community. Now is the time to take an internal assessment of your company’s talent pool and start selecting individuals who can compete for HITEC's recognition awards! You can inspire our future generation to pursue technical careers by nominating your best and brightest Hispanic Technology Professional and Entrepreneurs.
