Latino Impact Awards 2015


San Diego Magazine and Univision KBNT San Diego are thrilled to have hosted the Latino Impact Awards. The third annual event, held at The Headquarters at Seaport District on October 14, honored San Diego’s most distinguished Latino leaders and celebrated their incredible accomplishments. Corporate, entrepreneurial, and civic Latino leaders of all ages and industries gathered to connect with their peers during this evening of inspiration.

This year, 47 people were selected as finalists by our panel of judges—nearly double the amount from 2014. Five distinguished people were honored in the following categories: Cross-Border Leader, Entrepreneur of the Year, Inspirational Leader, and Volunteer of the Year. Congressman Juan Vargas was presented with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

“San Diego is fortunate to be such a thriving multicultural city with dynamic leaders and visionaries,” says Jim Fitzpatrick, CEO and publisher of San Diego Magazine. “We salute the 2015 honorees and nominees for the Latino Impact Awards who have greatly enriched San Diego and the cross border region, along with helping the local business, cultural, and artistic communities flourish in so many positive ways.”
