Yadira Enriquez

Chief Financial Officer, Enriquez produce, Inc.

Yadira Enriquez is the Chief Financial Officer of Enriquez Produce, Inc., a wholesale produce distribution company named one of the 50 Most Powerful Hispanic Businesses in Illinois in 2022. She brings a wealth of knowledge in human resources, team-building, communication, problem solving and business management.

Enriquez was recently honored to have been selected in the Negocios Now Latinos 40 Under 40, Class of 2021. She holds a bachelor’s degree in International Commerce specializing in Agricultural Business from ITESM (Tec de Monterrey) in Mexico, a certification from the Stanford GSB: Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative Program and is currently earning her MBA at EGADE Business School of Tec de Monterrey.

She is proud to have grown up in Pilsen, her upbringing offering a unique perspective of the resilience and grit of the Mexican community in Chicago. These are foundational values she carries with her today, committed to development and growth not only for herself but for those around her, the organization and most importantly her team.

As a first-generation Latina, Yadira shares a commonality with others who grew up in family entrepreneurial ventures: it takes boundless dedication, sound work ethics, persistence and resourcefulness to bootstrap your company into a successful organization. Seeing her parents start out with an outdoor food stand in the Maxwell Street Market now leading a company with over 100,000 square feet of availability to supply the needs of their customers is the best education in entrepreneurship she could have ever received.


It is imperative that we get off the sidelines and become proactive in promoting diversity in mindset and people. By being intentional with our actions, we will be able to drive continuous change across the industry.
