Nina Vaca          

Chairman & CEO of Pinnacle Technical Resources; Former Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship

Nina Vaca is Pinnacle Group’s Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer. Her dynamic leadership over the past 22 years has propelled the company from a niche IT services firm to the workforce solutions powerhouse it is today, providing industry-leading workforce solutions and high-end IT services to iconic global brands.

Pinnacle Group’s evolution and astronomical growth is the result of Vaca’s fearless approach to overcoming challenges and her intense focus on two core values: delivering impeccable service to clients and putting people at the heart of everything Pinnacle Group does. Pinnacle Group has been named to the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest-growing companies for more than a decade and is consistently named among the nation’s fastest-growing women-owned companies by the Women Presidents’ Organization.

Vaca is a committed civic leader and philanthropist. She advocates passionately for women and entrepreneurs and works to advance girls and women in STEM fields. In 2014, the White House appointed Vaca as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship (PAGE). As a PAGE Ambassador, Vaca has traveled across five continents, sharing her story and empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders. She also serves as Chairman Emeritus of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, where she champions the over 4.2 million Hispanic-owned businesses in America. As Chairman of the USHCC Foundation, Vaca founded the At the Table initiative to connect women with the valuable resources and recognition needed to reach the next level of success.

Vaca has been featured in numerous publications and is a sought-after speaker and thought leader worldwide. She has won numerous awards both for Pinnacle Group and as an individual. Vaca has also been named one of the most influential Latinos in the United States for the past ten years and has been called one of the country’s 100 most intriguing entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs.

Vaca holds three honorary doctorates from notable universities and is the youngest graduate in her alma mater‘s history to be honored as a distinguished alumna. She has been invited to speak at institutions such as the Milken Institute, Harvard University, and Stanford University, where she has also been added to the business curriculum. Vaca joined the 2016 Class of Henry Crown Fellows at the Aspen Institute. A global leader, she is a German Marshall Memorial Fellow and part of the British-American Project.

An avid and committed athlete, Vaca has participated in numerous iconic races including the Waikiki Roughwater Swim in Hawaii, the 120 mile Rocky Mountain Triple Bypass, the New York Marathon, and the Longhorn Austin Half Ironman. She completed the famous Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco, and in the process raised $100,000 to help entrepreneurs. Most recently, she completed the Ironman 70.3 in Manta, Ecuador to raise more than $100,000 for people left homeless after the devastating 2017 earthquake along coastal Ecuador. Vaca is a mother of four and resides in Dallas, Texas, with her husband and children.
