Jacqueline Baca is president of Bueno Foods, a family owned business in Albuquerque, N.M., that has been operating since 1951 and distributes products nationwide.

“We sell New Mexican food, which is very distinct,” Baca said. “Our mission is to share our culinary heritage with the world.”

Baca joins the Denver Branch Board of Directors after serving on the Tenth District Economic Advisory Council.

“I am bringing the perspective of our industry—in our region and in the New Mexico economy—as well as my perspective and viewpoints of peers and people that I reach out to,” Baca said.

Baca serves on the boards of Think New Mexico, Viante New Mexico and the Gas Company of New Mexico. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in business administration, both from the University of New Mexico.

Service on the Advisory Council was “eye-opening” in many ways in terms of learning more about the economy and the Federal Reserve, Baca said. She is looking forward to similar experiences on the Denver Branch Board.

“Just learning from other directors, learning from the economists and Federal Reserve staff, learning more about what’s going on in our District and the regional economy,” Baca said. “It’s all about learning and helping support the Denver Branch in whichever way I can.”
