We would like to congratulate "Plaza del Sol and its owner, Simon Cipriano, at the 4th Anniversary of its existence.

It is always difficult to be a successful small business, and most of the small businesses fail within the first year. So being able to celebrate its 4th Anniversary is something to be proud of! 

Well done, Simon!!! Congratulations!!!!

Frank Venegas Jr., Chairman and CEO of Ideal Group Inc., will be the Keynote Speaker at the Ohio Hispanic Chambers of Commerce Gala Dinner on Sept. 12th .

Headquartered in the Southwest Detroit barrio known as Mexicantown, and employing 250 people, The Ideal Group companies’ combined 2007 annual revenues exceeded $151 million. In 2004, Inc. Magazine selected Venegas as one its of 25 America’s Most Fascinating Entrepreneurs and USHCC named Venegas as its 2004 Business Man of the Year. General Motors has awarded The Ideal Group its prestigious performance award, the GM Global Supplier of the Year (2002-2007) for Best in Class Construction Services and Material Management.

Venegas serves on the Board of Directors for the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and The Michigan Minority Business Development Council. He is also a member of the General Motors Global Council and is the current Co-Chair for the GM Supplier Diversity Council. He serves on the Tuck School of Business (Dartmouth University) Advisory Board and the University of Michigan – Dearborn Dean’s Advisory Council.

The Venegas rise from barrio to global entrepreneur is rooted in his desire to learn and his zeal to apply the lessons learned along the way. Frank committed early to his goals and believed he could achieve them and advises others to be likewise committed to their dreams. “If I told someone when I was young that I was going to have a $151 million-a-year business and do what we’ve done, most people probably would have said, ‘You can’t do it,’ and would have tried to talk me out of it,” he says. “But if it’s inside your heart and if that’s what you want, you should go do it.”

Six Hispanic executives participated on the panel, including Accenture’s Jay Zerbe, Utility Industry Managing Director. Jay shared his thoughts about building and maintaining relationships. Another panelist, Tillie Hidalgo Lima, talked about goal setting.

Tillie is the President/CEO of Best Upon Request, a company that Accenture played a key role in helping to “put on the map.” Best Upon Request is a privately held minority-owned and woman-owned national concierge services firm headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. Nellie Borrero, director – Global Inclusion & Diversity at Accenture, recently took some time to interview Tillie. Tillie offered advice for professional women and spoke about how networking, goal setting and stepping out of one’s comfort zone can be critical to one’s success.
