Hispanic Lifestyle has named New American Funding a company that provides Outstanding Opportunities for Women. Hispanic Lifestyle, an enterprise that promotes positive images of the Latino community, is honoring the mortgage lender with an award at the opening reception of its second Annual Latina Conference.
“We were looking for companies that walk the walk, not just talk the talk; and New American Funding has done an outstanding job creating a positive growth environment for women,” said Richard Sandoval, president of Hispanic Lifestyle. “They’re doing amazing things for Latinos and women not only in Southern California but across the nation.”
As a champion for women empowerment, New American Funding Co-Founder and President Patty Arvielo has constructed a corporate team that’s comprised of more than 50 percent women, many holding C-level positions.
“We’re honored to be acknowledged as a company that empowers women,” said Arvielo. “I’m passionate about elevating the Hispanic community and opening the door for women to excel to their potential."
Arvielo manages operations and sales for the headquarters, 130-plus branches, and 2,300-plus employees. She’s a long-time advocate of the Hispanic community through initiatives like Latino Focus Committee, which she spearheads as an avenue to educate Hispanic consumers who are pursuing homeownership.
New American Funding is the first company recognized by Hispanic Lifestyle in three categories; previous acknowledgements include an award for Arvielo as a Latina of Influence, and the Survived and Thrived business award.
