Pike executive named Hispanic Business Person of the Year

July 18, 2014

Mauricio Riveros, an executive vice president at the Pike Co. Inc., has been named Hispanic Business Person of the Year for 2014, the Rochester Hispanic Business Association announced Friday.

Riveros oversees project operations and risk management at Pike, and is responsible for the Rochester-based commercial builder’s training and professional development program.

“Mauricio has the leadership of an innovator, the one who inspires leaders to act and the one who gets things done,” RHBA president Hiram Hernandez Sr. said in a statement.

A resident of Perinton, Riveros was national director of planning and territorial organization for the Bolivian government prior to coming to the United States and Pike.

He is a board member with the Upstate New York Minority Supply Development Council, Allendale Columbia School, St. Ann’s Community and the YMCA of Greater Rochester.

“Being from Bolivia, I have always held the Hispanic community near and dear to my heart, and consider it a privilege to contribute in any way possible,” Riveros said in the statement.

Riveros is to be honored as the 25th recipient of the annual award at an RHBA luncheon Sept. 25 at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

The RHBA is an affiliate of the Rochester Business Alliance Inc.
