2020 Gala Co-Chairs Marc & Marta Bianchini
Owners, Bianchini Experience "Forty-eight hours before we were about to open up our 2nd restaurant,
our manager quit. Instead of panicking, I went to an HPGM networking event that evening, where I met the brother of who would become our new manager. That was seventeen years ago. The networking power of HPGM is tremendous. I am grateful to call so many in this organization customers, friends and supporters. Together, we will continue to help professionals and students find placement in companies throughout Wisconsin to make this state a more desirable location for working Hispanics. Together, “si, se puede”!”
Chairman of The Board & CEO, Palermo’s Pizza “Milwaukee is home. Palermo’s is headquartered in the heart of the Menomonee Valley and has a diverse, multicultural workforce. We understand and our dedicated to creating inclusion and equity for all. Our involvement with HPGM is one part of our commitment to inclusion through creating opportunity for Hispanic students, professionals, and our community.”
CEO/General Partner of PK2 Group, Owner of Colby Abbot and Railway Exchange Buildings “I support HPGM’s work because it is vital to developing future community leaders. It starts with nurturing first generation Hispanic students on their quest to go to college and providing financial assistance while in college then most importantly it continues by mentoring them each step of the way to stay in college and graduate. Finally, HPGM connects these students to potential jobs in the community they would otherwise have no access to. Developing leaders one by one is incredibly effective and the results speak for themselves. There is no one else doing this great work.” 8
