Nina Vaca is a household name owing to her broad range of philanthropic works. She founded an independent entity, The Nina Vaca Foundation, which runs all of her charitable activities. Vaca ushered in the new foundation in style in 2018 and gave 40 families new homes in Ecuador.
Vaca’s story revives hope and the belief that one bad experience isn’t the end of a journey. Although she is Ecuadorian by birth, Vaca and her family moved to the United States where she pursued her college education. She was destined to work in the technology industry. At the tender age of 25, the young, ambitious woman took it upon herself to start a company called Pinnacle Group.
Years later, Vaca’s masterpiece of a company has been recognized on multiple occasions as one of the fastest growing companies in the country. In an industry dominated by men, Vaca succeeded in building and developing Pinnacle Group into one of the largest IT firms in the country. Vaca currently serves as the chief executive officer and chairman of Pinnacle Group.
As a tribute to celebrate all of the powerful women during International Women’s Day, the Nina Vaca Foundation raised $11,000. This money will empower women of Hispanic descent to enhance their businesses and careers.
Vaca’s journey to the top hasn’t been easy, but over the past few years, her progress has been incredible. She hopes to continue touching and empowering many more lives.
