Ines Antonetti-Ferrer Named Hispanic Business Person of the Year
Rochester Hispanic Business Association Award
The Rochester Hispanic Business Association, a Rochester Business Alliance affiliate, named Ines Antonetti-Ferrer its 2013 Hispanic Business Person of the Year. Antonetti-Ferrer owns Ines’ Casa de Hair beauty salon on Rochester’s North Goodman Street, where she also serves as lead stylist.
The 2013 Hispanic Business Person of the Year honor is the latest of several awards that Antonetti-Ferrer has received in her 33 years in business. Antonetti-Ferrer split her days in the Rochester City School District between Jefferson High School and Edison Tech to complete her academic studies along with an occupational education. She received a high school diploma and a New York State license in Cosmetology.
Rochester Hispanic Business Association Chair Grace Tillinghast said, “I am delighted that RHBA selected Ines as the 2013 awardee. Ines is a pioneer Hispanic business owner and one who has established and maintained her business in the city of Rochester. She is only the fourth female to be named Hispanic Business Person of the Year in the 24 year existence of the RHBA.”
Other female recipients include Flor Colon in 1997, Tillinghast in 2003, and Jackie Ortiz in 2009.
