The Honorable Hector Barreto

Strategic Advisor


Mr. Barreto was nominated to the U.S. Small Business Administration by former President George W. Bush and served as Administrator for five years. He is a nationally recognized public speaker, and a leader and commentator on key issues concerning business, politics, and the Latino community.

“Throughout his career, Hector Barreto has demonstrated an impressive ability to provide national leadership in both the Latino and business communities,” said Jim Plante, Pathway Genomics’ Founder and CEO. “He shares our vision for closing the healthcare disparity gap in the Latino population through preventative care such as our BRCATrue– Hispanic (8-site) cancer test which is specifically targeted to pathogenic variants found in Mexican-Americans and possibly other Latino populations.”
