Hector Topete

Hector’s passion for helping young adults stemmed from his first job as a Youth Mentor with the Employment Development Department/Youth Employment Opportunity Program in Hayward from 2003-2006; providing job services, counseling, and education resources to low income at-risk youth.

In 2004, he was awarded the Hispanic Community Affairs Council scholarship, it was then when he received his award at the luncheon that he decided to one day return and give back to the organization that believed in him.

Hector graduated from California State University Hayward in 2008 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Finance.  In 2009, he returned for classes to earn his teaching credential to further enhance his mentoring skills and abilities.

Hector pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a business owner when he successfully launched Redline Autosports, an automotive dealership in Livermore, CA in 2012.

In 2015, Hector returned to school to pursue a Master’s degree from CSUEB and successfully completed his MBA in 2017.  He believes that organizations like HCAC is what will help guide the future Hispanic generation into realizing their dreams.
