This very special YPN Executive Conversations we will be partnering with Latino Young Professionals (LYPN) as we hear from the dynamic Monterrosa couple, Rudy and Cecilia. Executive Conversations is a series of small round-table discussions where YPs can learn from presidents and CEO level executives from area businesses. YPs will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage with key business leaders in the community. We are honored to work with LYPN to bring you this opportunity to hear from Rudy and Cecilia.
