Gumucio one of 500 relationship builders to participate in The Davidson Group

Ed Gumucio is featured in a Tennessean article about the Davidson Group, a 28-year-old Nashville organization dedicated to pairing people from different backgrounds for conversation and mutual understanding.

From the article:
The program, founded by the late Nashville businessman Nelson C. Andrews, has had about 500 people participate during its history.
Eduardo Gumucio, a native of Bolivia who has lived in Nashville for the last 15 years, plans to be there. He operates a business, Hablemos, that helps companies tap into the growing the Latino community. When he met his Davidson Group partner, an older Nashville businessman who is white, Gumucio was the first Bolivian the man had ever met.
"The concept is it's hard to dislike your friends; it's hard to not understand and even appreciate something about them once they are in your life," said Deborah Varallo, who is also chairman of the group's advisory board and a participant in what is now her second Davidson Group pairing.
Stonecrest Medical Center, where Gumucio is a trustee, has this abbreviated Gumucio bio:
Born in Cochabamba, Bolivia, Eduardo “Ed” Gumucio now lives in Smyrna and serves as the president of The Hispanic Solution, LLC, a consulting firm that developed the Hispanic Friendly Corporation™ model. This model analyzes a company’s key organizational functions and recommends methods for interacting more successfully with the Hispanic population. Mr. Gumucio’s civic involvement includes chairing the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce’s multi-cultural task force for three years, as well as serving on the boards of the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the American Diabetes Association.
