Washington D.C. – The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) is proud to announce the launch of a partnership between the USHCC Hispanic Business Enterprise (HBE) program and Rafael Marrero & Company, to help Hispanic businesses across the nation successfully enter large private and public-sector supply chains; which can often seem inaccessible to Hispanic business owners.

“The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce exists to open doors and provide business opportunities for our members,” said Javier Palomarez, USHCC President & CEO. “This initiative will give our Hispanic Business Enterprises cost-effective access to public and private sector certification services— providing them with the resources needed to further scale their businesses and unleash their untapped economic potential.”

Through this partnership, Rafael Marrero & Company will provide a wide range of public and private sector certifications, technical assistance, supplier diversity consulting, and other services at significantly discounted rates. Rafael Marrero & Company is the USHCC’s official business-to-government and business-to-business supplier diversity certification partner.

“I am humbled to partner with the USHCC in the creation of this initiative. I know it will be a great benefit to Hispanic-owned businesses across the country,” said Rafael Marrero, President & CEO of Rafael Marrero & Company. “It is our goal for all USHCC HBE members to utilize this powerful resource at their disposal, as well as create awareness of the countless business opportunities available to them within the public and private sector. We are confident this initiative will be a tremendous benefit.”
