Oscar Cerezales awarded PCMA’s 2019 Chairman’s Award

MCI global executive vice president Oscar Cerezales was named this year’s recipient of the 2019 Chairman’s Award at the recent PCMA Convening Leaders in San Francisco.

Cerezales was honored for his significant contributions to PCMA and the business events industry, including his critical role in helping PCMA in building its Latin American audience. He has also co-developed strategic plans for PCMA’s regional advisory boards in the Asia-Pacific and EMEA regions. Most recently, Cerezales has designed and delivered the Leadership Summit program for c-suite and senior-level leaders at Convening Leaders 2020.

“When I joined PCMA, it was all about volunteering, I’m just trying to walk the talk,” Cerezales said.

The award was delivered by Gregory A. O’Dell, the outgoing chair of PCMA’s board of directors.

“He is a dynamic leader in the global business events industry and devotes countless time to make a difference in our industry and the world. Every so often, organizations get lucky and encounter people who are passionate about the industry, and Oscar goes above and beyond giving selflessly of his time and talent every year,” said O’Dell.
