Press Release – Battalia Winston Helps ALPFA Land New CEO

New York, New York — Battalia Winston, a leading executive search firm, has helped ALPFA, one of the nation’s largest and most established Latino professional organizations, select Charles P. Garcia to succeed longtime CEO Manny Espinoza as its new Chief Executive Officer.
ALPFA retained Susan Medina of Battalia Winston, an expert in Diversity and Inclusion, to lead the national search. Medina worked closely with ALPFA leadership to understand their requirements, culture, and mission, before conducting an extensive review of qualified talent.
Mr. Garcia recently served as CEO of Garcia Trujillo Holdings LLC, a merchant banking, private equity, and consulting firm, where he was recognized as one of the leading advisors to businesses in the global Hispanic market.  He’s served in the administrations of multiple American presidents, is a best-selling author, and has been praised by Hispanic Business, Latino Leaders, and PODER as one of the most influential Hispanics in the United States for his contributions to the expansion of Latino influence and reputation.
“I’m very proud that Battalia Winston was able to facilitate this match,” says Medina. “We’re confident that Charles will contribute to ALPFA’s success. His professional experience and public service demonstrate his commitment to developing business leaders in the Latino community.”
