Miami Empresarial Magazine was invited by the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce to network with distinguished guests, enjoy the sumptuous Gala celebrating its 39th Anniversary in Miami, Florida and cover its Annual Ponce de Leon Awards.

 

Held at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Miami, with more than 340 guests, the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce celebrated the presentation of its prestigious Ponce de León awards. On this occasion and coinciding with its 39th anniversary, the main protagonists of the evening were the financial entity ABANCA and César Cernuda, corporate vice president at Microsoft Corporation and president of Microsoft Latin America, who received from the president of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce the Ponce de León award for “Company of the Year” and  “Executive of the Year”, respectively.

Javier Estades Saez, president of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce and president of Tabacalera USA, recalled that 500 years ago Magallanes-Elcano accomplished the first circumnavigation of the world, showing the curiosity and adventurous spirit that defines Spaniards who throughout these centuries have imprinted a lasting mark on America. The president stated that “History is still alive and we have this example in the winners we are honoring today.” Finally, he stressed that “being part of the network of the Chamber of Commerce of Spain, which has 180 offices in more than 31 countries, makes us an excellent global business development platform and professional network.

The Ponce de León prize for
the “Executive of the Year” 

Cesar Cernuda, corporate vice president at Microsoft Corporation and president of Microsoft Latin America, received from the president of the chamber Javier Estades the Ponce de Leon award for the “2019 Executive of the Year” for his professional career and his contribution to accelerate the technological advancement in Latin America.

 
Cernuda was also recently appointed as a global co-sponsor of the Microsoft Women’s Committee -Women @Microsoft-, a role that he considers an honor and an opportunity to continue working to promote the diversity and inclusion of women within the company and in the technological sector: “It’s a great honor for me to receive the Ponce de León award. I want to congratulate the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce for the work they do, which is very much aligned with Microsoft’s mission of empowering every person and organization on the planet to achieve more, something I feel very passionate about and believe is a crucial building block of our future as a society.”
