Event Description:

The Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's annual Five Pillar Lecture Series addresses each of the areas that we believe are the cornerstones of a productive, thriving business environment: civic engagement, economic activity, a thriving education system, quality business development, and diversity in leadership. The upcoming Five Pillar Lecture Series will focus on Economy with Sean Donohue as the keynote speaker.

Sean Donohue serves as Chief Executive Officer of Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport, the fourth-busiest airport in the world. In this role as CEO, Mr. Donohue is responsible for the management, operation and future strategy and development of the Airport. As the chief executive of DFW Airport, Mr. Donohue manages an organization with 1800 employees and an annual operating budget of $800 million, as well as a $3 billion capital improvement program. DFW Airport produces more than $37 billion in annual economic impact for the Dallas Fort Worth region, and hosts 64 million customers each year.

At this Five Pillar luncheon event, the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will introduce its Inaugural Milestone Awards. These awards specifically highlight local businesses for their invaluable service and contribution to our Fort Worth economy.
