Liberty Power: Liberty Power CRO Eliezer Hernandez Delivers Noteworthy Address at 25th Edison Electric Institute Supplier Diversity Conference
Liberty Power’s Continued Success Proves Supplier Diversity is Sound Strategic Investment
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – June 19, 2008 – Liberty Power, today announced that Eliezer Hernandez, Chief Relationship Officer, spoke at the 25th annual Edison Electric Institute Supplier Diversity Conference. The conference was held Wednesday, May 21st at The Grand Hyatt, Denver, Colorado.
Before a question and answer session, Hernandez addressed the audience by urging diverse suppliers to continue to network at Supplier Diversity events, but not to rely solely on doing business with companies that have well–established Supplier Diversity programs. Supplier Diversity programs are business programs that encourage the use of previously underutilized minority–owned vendors.
Liberty Power continues to demonstrate a strong presence in the realm of Supplier Diversity. Last month, Liberty Power was honored with JCPenney’s “Bill Alcorn Supplier Diversity Award”. Additionally, Liberty Power CEO, David Hernandez recently delivered the keynote address at the Florida Regional Minority Business Council Business Expo.
These honors provide yet another example of how the Hernandez brothers, fellow co–founder, Alberto Daire, and Liberty Power continue to be recognized as leaders in the minority–business community. Last year, Liberty Power was named the fastest growing Hispanic–business in the United States by Hispanic Business magazine.
The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) is the association of U.S. shareholder–owned electric companies. Their members represent approximately 70 percent of the U.S. electric power industry. In its leadership role, EEI provides advocacy, authoritative analysis, and critical industry data to its members, Congress, government agencies, the financial community and other opinion–leader audiences. EEI also provides forums for member company representatives to discuss issues and strategies to advance the industry and to ensure a competitive position in a changing marketplace.
