After spending two and a half years as vice president of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce, in June Garcia was named executive director of the Associated Contractors of New Mexico.
Prior to working with the Hispano Chamber of Commerce, Garcia spent years in the food industry, working with local restaurants Sadie's and El Pinto Foods, as well asworking in the hospitality industry.
A skill Garcia's learned throughout his career that he thinks will translate over to his new position is effectively communicating internally and with outside organizations. Garcia will work heavily with the Department of Transportation as well as the governments in Santa Fe and Washington D.C.
Because of his background in tourism, Garcia feels he'll be able to help recruit new employees, who could eventually earn up a six-figure salary. Business First reported on the Associated Contractors of New Mexico's recruiting efforts by attending events at local colleges and high schools and teaching students about industries and their expectations. The association also made an effort to reach out to veterans and ex-offenders looking for work.
