The 2007 Latin Business 100

Once again, we offer our list of those we feel are extraordinary individuals in the Latin business arena. The names are most likely quite familiar to you, either from last year’s list, from reading our magazine and other Hispanic media over the past year, or from personal experience. We’ve added some new names and replaced some from last year. The people replaced are by no means less extraordinary; it’s just that we’ve arbitrarily limited our list to 100 individuals and in order to add new names, some old ones had to go.

Just like last year, there’s nothing scientific about this list. We used no underlying selection criteria other than conspicuous achievement. In the end, it’s simply a group of outstanding Hispanics that we admire.
