Liberty Power CEO David Hernandez Delivers Keynote Address at 35th National Minority Supplier Development Council Conference and Business Opportunity Fair
Company’s Continued Success Proves Supplier Diversity is Sound Strategic Investment for Fortune 500 Companies
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – November 6, 2007 – Liberty Power, the fastest growing, independent energy retailer focused on business consumers, today announced that CEO David Hernandez delivered one of the keynote addresses at the 35th annual National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) Conference. Hernandez, a board member of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, delivered the address during a morning session on October 31, 2007.
Each year, the NMSDC Conference and Business Opportunity Fair is the nation’s benchmark forum on minority business development. Hernandez discussed the keys to Liberty Power´s success and stressed the importance of being a partner and not a persuader when it comes to customer relations. This year, the conference, held October 28 through October 31 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Florida, drew over 7,000 participants.
“It’s a great privilege to address such an important group of business leaders” said Hernandez. “For more than three decades, the NMSDC has played a leadership role in the area of supplier diversity by bringing together corporate America and minority–owned companies. Liberty Power serves as a positive example of how a minority–owned company can add value to corporations that seek to secure a great value offering, while also striving to increase their diversity spending.”
Hernandez co–founded Liberty Power in 2001 and has led the company to continuous growth over the past 6 years, growing from a startup company in 2002 to over $119 million in revenues in 2006 and was recently named the fastest growing Hispanic business in the United States by Hispanic Business Magazine. Liberty Power is licensed to provide electricity to small and medium–sized businesses, large national accounts and government agencies in fourteen states and the District of Columbia.
This honor provides yet another example of how Hernandez and Liberty Power continue to be recognized as leaders in the Hispanic business community. Earlier this year, Hernandez was named to the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) board of directors. He has also been named National Hispanic Businessman of the Year by the USHCC, National Hispanic Entrepreneur of the Year by the National Hispanic Professional Organization and Hispanic Entrepreneur of the Year by Hispanic Business Magazine during his tenure at Liberty Power.
