Driving force behind the company's recent high profile partnerships and expansion joins select group of influential business leaders and change agents from throughout the Americas
MEXICO CITY, June 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Iván Chávez, Executive Vice President of Grupo Vidanta, joined the Inter-American Dialogue's President's Leadership Council on June 5, 2018 in Washington, DC at the council's fourth annual meeting. His extensive experience in business development, strategy and operations will help to shape the Council's agenda and advance the Dialogue's commitment to addressing the pressing challenges facing the Western Hemisphere.
The President's Leadership Council is comprised of a select group of influential business leaders and change agents that share the Dialogue's commitment to the values of democratic governance, as well as economic and social progress. At the Inter-American Dialogue's fourth annual meeting, business leaders met with key figures from the administration, Congress, civil society and academia to address the most pressing issues affecting US-Latin American relations. Discussions focused on trade and immigration policy, cooperation to fight corruption and the implications of China's growing involvement in the region.
As Executive Vice President, Chávez has played an integral role in making Grupo Vidanta Mexico's premier luxury resort developer, with a top-notch team of world-class executives leading the company and locations in seven exotic beach destinations. Under his leadership, Vidanta's Grand Luxxe resort brand achieved the coveted Five Diamond Award from the American Automobile Association (AAA). More recently, his $150-million partnership with the Hakkasan Group created four new venues in Vidanta Los Cabos, which have taken entertainment and dining in Mexico to new heights.
"It is truly an honor to join the President's Leadership Council," said Chávez. "The Inter-American Dialogue continues to tackle the most pressing challenges we face as a region. Its tireless commitment to devise solutions and enhance cooperation between its members is having a tangible positive impact on our citizens."
Chávez graduated from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and double major in Real Estate Development and Entrepreneurship. Chávez is also a member of the Forbes Business Council and a board member of the Wilson Center's Latin American Program in Washington, DC.
"We are pleased to have Iván Chávez join our select group of influential business leaders on the Council," said Michael Shifter, President of the Inter-American Dialogue. "His reputation, along with the amazing work that Grupo Vidanta does throughout the region exemplifies the leadership qualities that have made the Council an integral part of the organization. We look forward to the fresh ideas he will bring."
