Mauricio Riveros Named Hispanic Business Person of the Year
The Pike Company Executive Receives 25th Annual RHBA Award
The Rochester Hispanic Business Association, a Rochester Business Alliance affiliate, named Mauricio Riveros its 2014 Hispanic Business Person of the Year. Riveros serves as Executive Vice President of The Pike Company, overseeing project operations and risk management.
Riveros is also responsible for Pike’s “The University” program that provides internal training and professional development for all Pike and LECESSE employees. He developed the company’s “Steps to Success Program” that provides hands-on training to women and minority-owned companies in alliance with public and private enterprise.
Rochester Hispanic Business Association President Hiram Hernandez, Sr. said, “Mauricio has the leadership of an innovator, the one who inspires leaders to act, and the one who gets things done.”
Prior to coming to the United States and The Pike Company, Riveros served as National Director of Planning and Territorial Organization for the Bolivian government. Riveros serves on a number of local boards including the Upstate New York Minority Supply Development Council, Allendale Columbia School, St. Ann’s Community, and the YMCA. He lives in Perinton with his wife, Bess, and three children.
Riveros said, “It is with great honor that I receive this award for making a significant contribution to the Hispanic and business community of Rochester. Being from Bolivia, I have always held the Hispanic community near and dear to my heart and consider it a privilege to contribute in any way possible. Through my interactions with various organizations, groups, and companies whose goal it is to improve the lives of our general community and Hispanic population and make connections amongst the Hispanic community, I have found the Rochester Hispanic Business Association to be a great promoter of these goals. I could not be more grateful and blessed that they have chosen me as this year’s Hispanic Business Person of the Year.”
Mauricio Riveros receives the annual Hispanic Business Person of the Year award at the Rochester Hispanic Business Association gala luncheon September 25 at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
