The Atlanta-based Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce recently announced that Rodrigo Infante has taken over the position of membership director for the organization.

Mr. Infante will oversee the chamber’s efforts to recruit businesses–both Hispanic and non-Hispanic–to the organization, helping them create innovative solutions to better their companies.

His new appointment comes after working as a membership representative at the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, where he coordinated events in the Hispanic community.

After being born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Mr. Infante grew up in Colombia and went to college there, graduating with a communications degree in 2002.

The Georgia Hispanic Chamber is also home to the Hispanic American Center for Economic Development, an incubator for Hispanic businesses trying to transition into Georgia.
