Diageo, the beer and wine company, has been recognized by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Denver (Hispanic Chamber) as the Corporate Advocate of the Year.  The Hispanic Chamber jointly awarded Diageo and Beverage Distributors, along with nine other individuals and companies, for their “outstanding leadership and support in the Hispanic community” at the organization’s 28th Annual Business Awards Luncheon. Comprised of small-business owners, corporate representatives, community leaders, and association members representing various professions, the Hispanic Chamber is the state’s largest minority Chamber.

“At Diageo, we are committed to being an organization, and working with organizations, that value diversity and inclusion; it is core to who we are and simply makes good business sense,” said Joe Lehane, Senior Vice President, Diageo.  “We are honored to receive this recognition from our partners at the Hispanic Chamber and look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with the Hispanic community in Denver and throughout the world.”

Award recipients were chosen by a nomination committee consisting of past winners and board members of the Hispanic Chamber.  Companies and individuals were evaluated based on their business success, involvement with organizations, committees and board of directors that promote Hispanic business development, as well as Hispanic business outreach and involvement with the Hispanic Chamber.
