He founded Cárdenas Marketing Network (CMN) in 2002 and currently leads an award-winning team to orchestrate innovative campaigns for corporate giants including Anheuser-Busch, Wrigley Jr. Company and H&R Block among others. Today, CMN is recognized as the largest producer of Latin music concerts and sporting events in the United States, staging over 150 events every year. "I am grateful to be honored by Goya and the Spain US Chamber of Commerce," said Henry Cardenas, CEO of CMN and co-founder of Maestro Cares. "Out of all of my accomplishments, creating Maestro Cares was by far my greatest. Together, we set out to make a difference in the lives of children without food, love, and proper care, and instead, each of the children we have helped has given us so much more in return. This is just the beginning." In 2012, Mr. Cárdenas teamed up with business associate and Grammy Award winner Marc Anthony to launch the Maestro Cares Foundation in an effort to help disadvantaged children in developing Latin American countries. The mission of Maestro Cares is to improve the quality of life for orphaned children throughout Latin America by providing housing, classrooms, health clinics, dining and recreational facilities. Since its founding, the Foundation has opened up orphanages in the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Mexico. New projects are currently in process in Peru, Puerto Rico, Bolivia, Guatemala and Chicago.
