President of Guy Brown Products and Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of CommercePeru native and Brentwood businesswoman Maria Teresa “Tera” Vazquez was recently interviewed by the Nashville Post. Vazquez is the co-founder and President of Guy Brown Products, a $200 million ink toner cartridge supplier. She is also the first elected woman president of the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce*.
In the interview, Vazquez credits the Tennessee Minority Supplier Development Council for key assistance in Guy Brown's early stages:
The [Tennessee Minority Supplier Development Council] was the catalyst for our success. You must be the best at what you do in order to effectively compete, but having a supporter like Cheri Henderson (TMSDC’s executive director) has definitively made a difference.Read the entire Nashville Post interview here.
Vazquez was also interviewed by the Tennessean in March, under the headline "Chamber's Vazquez turned ink into gold" (PDF here courtesy of the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce).
