The Hispanic Business Salute is an event that recognizes Hispanic entrepreneurs and supports the younger generation in achieving success. Its mission is to celebrate the contributions of Hispanic entrepreneurs in North Texas that have significantly impacted their communities and created opportunities through innovation and entrepreneurship.
We are honored that Mayan Technologies and our Managing Partner, Sergio Prieto, were recognized last Tuesday, September 13th by The Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce as one of Telemundo's Local Hispanic Business Leaders of the year at their 12th Hispanic Business Salute event at AT&T Stadium. Hosted by Rick Ortiz, President, and CEO of the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Sergio and Mayan Technologies was presented with an award to commemorate the special recognition.
"As a business leader in my community, I am proud to be recognized and want to thank the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for this award. You're the best Chamber I have ever worked with, and I want to thank you for your continuous support and guidance." said Sergio Prieto, "Also, I want to thank our team at Mayan Technologies for their tremendous effort and dedication, and finally and, most importantly, I want to thank my wife and my son; you are the only reason why I'm standing here, I love you. Thank you."
As a company, and as a team, we couldn’t be prouder of this recognition, which comes as a result of our incredible dedication to building relationships with our community, clients, and partners. We strive every day to make sure that we are giving back to our community and providing our customers with excellent service while also keeping their best interests at heart.
This achievement wouldn't have been possible without Sergio Prieto—our Managing Partner. Sergio embodies what it means to be a leader: he's humble but confident; he believes in himself but also trusts others; he knows when to push forward and when to hold back; and most importantly, he values integrity above all else.
We're also excited about all the other companies and individuals who received this recognition. Congratulations to Adriana Gallegos from Perfect Timing Events and Lorena Esparza from La Laguna Western Wear, who were also awarded for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to the Latin/Hispanic community. We hope these organizations continue to grow so that we can continue to support each other's success.
Following this amazing event, all winning members were invited to attend the Cowboys vs Bengals game held on Sunday, Sept. 18 at the AT&T Stadium and receive recognition from the 50-yard line, receiving a check from Tom Ehlmann, President of Telemundo 39 and NBC 5. The check was part of the 2022 Hispanic Business Salute Honorees.
It is with great pleasure that we would like to thank Telemundo 39, NBC 5, The Dallas Cowboys, and UPS for having us and honoring local businesses, business owners, and outstanding students. We're excited about this achievement and what it means for the future of Mayan Technologies. We believe this award represents our commitment to excellence—and we're just getting started!
