Ibero names new leader; Angelica Perez-Delgado will succeed Hilda Rosario Escher
By RANDY GORBMAN & DENISE YOUNG
The Ibero-American Action League’s new leader has a long connection with the agency.
Angelica Perez-Delgado is the new president and CEO of Ibero. She is succeeding Hilda Rosario Escher, who said earlier this year that she would be stepping down.
Perez-Delgado said that during her youth and early adulthood, Ibero provided her with a lot of support.
“I am one of many Ibero success stories,” she said. “I was a teenage mother; I had my first child when I was 16. I’ve received several services through Ibero throughout my life. My children attended the Early Childhood Center.”
She says that support was critical during a time when she was starting college and working toward a new life.
“Kind of making my transition from being on welfare and transitioning into being a working family,” she said. “I was a single mom … Ibero went above and beyond with me.”
She says if not for Ibero’s support during that difficult transition, she wouldn’t be where she is today.
