If you were not at our Dia De Los Muertos event, put it on your calendar for next year. This year 366 people came to the hotel Monaco in Dia De Los Muertos makeup and partied the night away to celebrate diversity and unity and next year it will be even BIGGER!

It is with your support that we may ensure the future viability of the chamber. In 2019 we are going to continue to build on the foundation that has been established at our organization and keep moving forward with your help.

    Did you know that the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was awarded the 2018 Chamber of the Year by Latino Connection Magazine?!



    Did you know that the US Census Bureau projects an increase of 86% in the Hispanic population by 2050.  Based on regional census data the Latino population is the fastest growing population in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region (an increase of 34% from 2010 to 2014).


    By 2020, 20% of the population will be Hispanic and by 2060, Hispanics are projected to represent 31% of the total U.S. population; only 12% less than the projected number of Caucasians! Hispanics have $1.7 trillion in buying power in the United States, a 55% increase from 2010 and are opening businesses at a rate of 8 to 1 when compared to Caucasians.

    Marketing to U.S. Hispanics is on the radar of every Fortune 500 CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) and it should be on yours too!



    "Surveyed a select panel of senior-level marketers to see if the U.S. Hispanic audience was on their roadmaps. They clearly recognized the opportunity: Most saw 11—25% of their company's growth coming from this demographic in the next three to five years. Still, most brands didn't have a marketing strategy for this audience, and most agencies were advising clients to invest in reaching them either "somewhat" or "not at all." -Google

    Latinos make up an increasing share of the U.S. electorate. A record 29 million Latinos were eligible to vote in this year’s midterm elections, accounting for 12.8% of all eligible voters, a new high. While it’s too soon to know how many voted and their turnout rate, Latinos made up an estimated 11% of all voters nationwide on Election Day, nearly matching their share of the U.S. eligible voter population (U.S. citizens ages 18 and older). Here are key takeaways about Latino voters and the 2018 elections.

    October 29, 2018

    Through this communication, the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (“PMAHCC”), its constituent Board of Directors, and its membership at large, express the most sincere condolences and deepest sympathies to all those directly and indirectly affected by the recent acts of senseless, horrific violence perpetrated against the Tree of Life Synagogue.

    Violence, in any of its harmful forms, has no place in our community, especially when directed against innocent human beings targeted because of their race, gender, religious beliefs, or any other personal identifier. Our organization, one of Pittsburgh’s largest and most diverse community engagement non-profits, will continue to cherish diversity and inclusion in our community, and our activities will always promote principles of respect and solidarity applicable to all.

    The PMAHCC stands in solidarity with the Jewish community, the Tree of Life Synagogue, and our city as a whole. Additionally, we are grateful for the admirable courage demonstrated by the local law enforcement authorities and first responders that sacrificed their wellbeing amidst the gravest of dangers. We will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Pittsburgh was built, brick by brick, by a cohesive community of hard-working, honest immigrants, and it has evolved into one of the country’s most dynamic and resilient sectors. Acts of bigotry, hatred, and racism will not define or destroy us - they never have, they never will. As such, Pittsburghers will overcome this tragedy, and, through our collective resilience, we will prove that isolated acts of hatred cannot undo the bonds that have unified the Steel City together for centuries.


    On behalf of the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Board.


    Carmen O. Malloy

    Chairman of the Board

    Dan Esterly: Orphan to Leader

    Ph.D. student and MBA graduate is shattering the status quo

    Written by: Paige Kazina / Published in: Hispanic Network Magazine



    PMAHCC is proud to introduce one of our newest members, Dan Esterly. We are proud of Mr. Esterly's accomplishments and eager to support Dan in the next chapter in his professional career.


    Being both young and Hispanic can feel daunting in America. Adversity can create obstacles and discourage young Hispanics from dreaming large. However, some young Hispanic-Americans are shattering the status quo. One of those people is Dan Esterly.


    If you’re from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, you may be familiar with Esterly’s work. At the age of 28, he is a business owner, Ph.D. student, radio host, and is heavily involved in Pittsburgh’s non- profit community. Esterly wasn’t always a success story. He was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and was given a two-day life expectancy from malnourishment at the orphanage. Despite the pessimistic health outlook, he was adopted and was raised in Pittsburgh. Esterly also battled depression and alcoholism in his young adult life.




    After much adversity, Esterly was able to rise above the initial cards he was dealt. He entered the workforce at the age of 13, started college at the age of 16, and began graduate school at the age of 21. In 2008, Esterly saw an opportunity to start actively buying stocks. He was able to outperform most financial professionals and was sought after to advise financial professionals. Esterly stated, “My first experiences in consulting were accidental. A fund manager from Boston called me for input, simply from word-of-mouth from the Pittsburgh business community. I was truly flattered and stunned, because of how young I was.”


    Esterly went on to earn an M.S. in Professional Counseling and an MBA in Healthcare Management. He attributes his education to building the foundation for his business in consulting. “I needed to master both fields to thrive. Business has various human elements, and counseling has a lot to teach us about organizations. The same principles that apply to group behavior also enhance an organization’s well-being.”



    Daniel Esterly and PMAHCC Director of Development, Melanie Marie Boyer,

    at the "Special Invitation to the Rivers Club" event in August.


    Esterly then went on to work as a lobbyist in biotechnology. One of his projects raised more than $34 million from the federal government to fund drug research. Regardless of his occupation, Esterly has always focused on increasing financial value for companies.


    In 2016, Esterly decided to diversify his business. He founded Public Waves, LLC, which eventually became a successful consulting venture. “I have had clients from Texas to Pennsylvania. It’s truly been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my entire life.” Currently, Public Waves, LLC serves clientele including the Energy Innovation Center Institute, Community Liver Alliance, Water4Life Mozambique, and CSD Engineers, LLC. He provides consulting services ranging from workforce development & economic research to other organizational services.


    Esterly also is a full-time doctoral student at Point Park University’s Ph.D. program in Community Engagement. “It’s somewhat of a leadership degree with a research focus on benefiting the community. The Pittsburgh community helped me to succeed and I am constantly looking for ways to give back.” He hosts a radio show through Point Park University, called Behavior Business, where he invites guests on the show from both the business and mental health community. Esterly also continues to self-manage his portfolio and consult on other larger investment portfolios.


    In 2015, Esterly established a charitable investment fund called Esterly Fund. To date, the fund supports 17 non-profits in Pittsburgh. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Glade Run Foundation and Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh. “I truly don’t think my life would have turned out this way in Honduras. It’s surreal sometimes to think of my journey and how different things could have been. I am grateful for every day on this earth and hope to give back ten-fold.” Esterly is considered a young rising star in the Pittsburgh business community.


    At the age of 28, Esterly insists he has only just begun. “It’s been my experience that businesses don’t care what race, nationality, age, etc. you are. If you can provide value for a company, companies will value your service. That’s the beautiful thing about America. You really can create or re-create your life here.”
