Commenting on the recognition, Villalobos said, “Lief Labs is very pleased to be honored by Hispanic Lifestyle among these distinguished fellow Latino and Latina-business owner honorees. We are proud of the business we have built, which was founded on the core values of Selflessness, Innovation Adaptability and Accountability and we look forward to continued growth and success through the contributions of Lief’s talented team of people.”
