Publisher, Business Latino
Rosemary Carrillo is the founder and publisher of Business Latino, a monthly publication that is devoted to the Latino business community in the New York tristate area. Rosemary began her journalism and newspaper publishing career at Impacto Latin News, one of the first hispanic focused newspapers inNew York, working on a daily basis for over ten years in this highly rewarding business. After gaining firsthand experience in the business, Rosemary was named editor and put in charge of the day-to-day operation of Impacto. In 2005 Rosemary became CEO of Impacto and from this position took Impacto to new and expanded heights. As a result of her commitment, Rosemary received the Business Women of the Year Award in 2007 from the New York State Federation of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce and in 2013 was awarded the Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s e-Business Women of the Year Award. Rosemary held the CEO position at Impact Latin
News until early 2009 when she stepped down to pursue a new and unique opportunity; Business Latino. The idea behind Business Latino is to provide an essential hub; a single place where business owners can link to the many services available to New York’s Latino business community. It is also exciting because it will be launched as an easily accessible, free website with a companion print publication, regular HTML newsletters, updates, events and so much more! Rosemary is working very hard on this new and exciting business venture which will begin its circulation in October 2009. With this project Rosemary is working closely with local Chambers of Commerce, Business Improvement Districts, local and regional governments and governmental agencies, as well as building
upon her established relationships inside and out of the media industry and other very exciting companies located through-out the New York tristate Area. Rosemary was able to build upon her extensive business experience and relationships and now uses them on a daily basis in her present position at Aetna Better Health New Jersey where she is a Community outreach &
Marketing. Rosemary works through out New Jersey to bring Aetna’s numerous and high quality healthcare plans to businesses of all sizes and types on a community driven approach. This approach to business development was a great fit for Rosemary as it greatly reflected her dedication to all of our tristate’s communities and the delivery of quality and essential services. Rosemary knows how to develop trust by displaying her commitment and dedication on a day to-day basis in everything she does.
