Business magazine selects Alvarado as a Top Hispanic Influential

Joaquin Alvarado has been named one of the Top 100 Hispanic Influentials by HispanicBusiness magazine. Joaquin, American Public Media’s senior v.p. for digital innovation, was selected from among Hispanics of U.S. citizenship who have had recent and national impact, whose achievements inspire other Hispanics to similar endeavors, and who have promoted the advancement of Hispanics in the United States by their leadership, community involvement or professional achievements. “Innovation is key” to exerting a positive influence in the Hispanic community, Alvarado told the magazine, “because the Hispanic community and the minority communities in this country are oftentimes the early adopters of new technologies.” Prior to his APM appointment, Alvarado was senior v.p. for diversity and innovation at CPB, as well as a founder of National Public Lightpath, advocating for a high-speed fiber optic network as the next generation of the Internet with public media, education and community leadership.
