SDI President, Carmen Castillo, Inducted to WBE Hall of Fame

Carmen Castillo, President & CEO of SDI International Corp., has been inducted into the Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony took place November 29th in Dallas, Texas. Both Castillo and Santana are members of the USHCC Board of Directors.

“We are delighted to celebrate this honor that has been bestowed upon two of our very own: Carmen Castillo and Rosa Santana. Both are entrepreneurs of exceptional talent and business acumen who have built world class enterprises,” said USHCC President & CEO, Javier Palomarez. “Our association and constituents value the leadership and counsel of these trailblazers, and are tremendously proud of both Carmen and Rosa for this well-deserved accolade.”
