The Miami Foundation’s Javier Alberto Soto selected for Henry Crown Fellowship
Group of 20 global leaders to address the challenges of business and civic leadership in the 21st century.
By: The Miami Foundation
The highly selective fellowship will bring together 20 executives from North and South America – all under 45 years of age – who have achieved success in their chosen fields and are at a meaningful inflection point in their lives and careers. The program comprises a structured series of seminars and each fellow will undertake an individual leadership project.
“It is an honor to be included in the 2013 class of the Henry Crown Fellows,” said Soto. “Cultivating thoughtful leaders is a key goal of the Foundation’s work. I look forward to getting the global perspective on society’s leadership challenges and infusing those principles into our programs training young leaders here in Miami-Dade.”
The Henry Crown Fellowship Program, established in 1997 to honor the life and accomplishments of Chicago industrialist Henry Crown, is the flagship program of the Aspen Global Leadership Network. It has 1,600 Fellows in 45 countries.
The program has four previous fellows from Greater Miami: Sergio M. Gonzalez, senior vice president for university advancement & external affairs at the University of Miami; Wifredo A. "Willy" Ferrer, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida; Cesar R. Conde, president of Univision Networks and Ricky Arriola, president and CEO of Inktel Direct Corporation. Soto is the only Florida member of the 2013 fellows class.
