The Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber on Wednesday named Oscar Arana as its new president.

“The Hispanic Chamber does incredible economic development work in Oregon and Southwest Washington, and I’m honored to be a steward to such a critical resource for the Latino community,” Arana said in a press release.

The 22-year-old Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber, with 875 members in Oregon and Southwest Washington, maintains an office in Vancouver.

Arana, who succeeds founding president Gale Castillo, starts in the role on Feb. 10. Arana works for the Native American Youth and Family Center in Portland and previously worked for U.S. Senator Ron Wyden. He has a master’s degree in business administration and a journalism and communication degree from the University of Oregon.
