Send the Elevator Down: Chamber Champion Interview [Video]

We’re excited to announce our newest Chamber Champion: Carlos Hidalgo, President & CEO of Hidalgo & DeVries.

Carlos has been involved with the Chamber since the early 1990s. He’s served on the Chamber’s Board of Directors, attended countless events and stayed involved with our advocacy efforts.

He also helped launch the Inclusion Institute (formerly the Institute for Healing Racism), one of the Chamber’s longest running programs and one of the first programs in the area focused on diversity & inclusion in the workplace.

Carlos also worked to help family-owned businesses prosper. His work helped create the Family Owned Business Council, which is now housed within the Seidman College of Business.

We’re excited to honor Carlos for his accomplishments and service to the West Michigan community during his time at the Chamber. Congratulations Carlos!
