The Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (FWHCC) has selected Anette Landeros as the new CEO and president of the organization. She will take her post on July 15, succeeding John Hernandez.

“Anette’s appointment is a clear reflection of the Chamber’s current state: ready to take on the future and fired up after another strong year of growth,” said Michael Dimas, FWHCC Board Chairman.

Landeros brings over 10 years of leadership and problem-solving expertise in government and nonprofit sectors to the organization. Most recently serving as Project Manager for the Office of Inspector General for the US Department of Transportation, Landeros lead teams in program evaluations of national transportation projects. She is also adept in nonprofit fundraising from her years of service with the Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas, a state-wide nonprofit organization in which she has served in various capacities for over a decade. Landeros will combine her knowledge of business best practices with her community building and nonprofit service to build the next chapter of the FWHCC.

“I look forward to working alongside the FWHCC Board of Directors, Fort Worth business community, and the City of Fort Worth to elevate our city’s economic standing to its maximum potential,” said Landeros. “It will be an honor to invest my professional and personal energy to the prosperity of this organization.”

Landeros has served on the FWHCC Board of Directors for the past two years. She also currently serves as a board member for Carter Bloodcare and has been involved with Fort Worth Sister Cities International, Leadership Fort Worth, Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts and several other organizations.

Landeros earned a Bachelor of Science in Public Policy Analysis at Indiana University. She also earned a Master of Public Affairs at the University of Texas.

“Anette’s unique experience with Fort Worth’s business community will benefit the organization,” said John Hernandez, who will exit the CEO post on August 1. “I’m confident that she will help members achieve continued success.”
