The Rochester Hispanic Business Association has elected Hiram Hernandez Sr. as board chairman, the organization announced Friday.

Hernandez, chairman and CEO of First Capital Payments in Rochester, succeeds Grace Tillinghast, who remains on the board as vice chairman.

“I look forward to maintaining and increasing the RHBA’s involvement in the community and I want the association to become a forum that provides valuable updates to our members and friends,” Hernandez said in a statement.
