Finesa is pleased to announce that Andres Gonzalez, President and CEO of Finesa Real Estate Group, has been selected as one of Washington Business Journals’ top 25 Minority Business Leaders for 2014. The award celebrates diverse business leaders in the community and honors entrepreneurial drive, creativity and success of the honorees.

This year was one of the most competitive years due to the high number of qualified nominees. Business leaders are either nominated by their peers, from people within their company or by their clients and customers. Five previous honorees made up the 2014 panel and selected award recipients based on their philanthropic efforts, professional accomplishments, awards and milestones and educational background.

The honorees will be recognized March 20 at the 7th annual Minority Business Leader Awards program hosted by the Washington Business Journal.

“I’m humbled and honored to be recognized as a Minority Business Leader in our community,” said Andres. “The team at Finesa celebrates this award alongside me, as all of the work is a result of a collaborative effort.”
