The New York City Bar Association’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion invites you to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month! This year, we are highlighting the legacy of Mario L. Baeza. Mr. Baeza is the first Latinx to make partner in a large New York City law firm, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP. After a storied career at Debevoise, in which he founded and lead three new practice areas: telecommunications and new technology; ESOP leveraged buyouts and Latin America corporate finance; and mergers and acquisitions and privatizations, Mr. Baeza transitioned to Wall Street where he founded a number of investment and media companies. 

Mr. Baeza is currently the Founder and controlling shareholder of The Baeza Group LLC, the first U.S. Hispanic-owned merchant banking firm. He plays an active role in many of the firm’s portfolio companies, including: the Founder and former Executive Chairman of V-me Media Inc., a national Spanish language television network distributed through the digital channels of public television affiliate stations; the Chairman and CEO of Sitio Saludable, Inc., a national multi-disciplinary media company formed to increase health literacy and provide positive health behavior change; the Chairman and CEO of Tropix Holdings, LLC, a Cuba-focused merchant banking firm formed to make legally authorized investments in a variety of sectors in Cuba; the Chairman and CEO of Alternative Energy Partners, Inc., a company focused on integrating various forms of green energy, with a predominant focus on hydrogen fuel cell technology; and the Founder and Chairman of AJM Records, LLC and The Access Studio, Inc., a studio for new and established recording artists.

Mr. Baeza is a former board member of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and co-founded Jazz@Lincoln Center. He is a graduate of Cornell University and Harvard Law School.
