Meet our President
President, CEO & Co-Founder
Cira Angeles is the President and Co-Founder of LA Riverside Brokerage, Inc., a leading provider of insurance solutions that serve the risk management needs of the individuals and companies that form the taxi and livery industry in New York City.
She is also the spokesperson of the Livery Base Owners association. An organization with 150 corporate members which represent over 12,000 drivers in New York City’s for-hire vehicle industry. In her role as spokesperson, she was a leading advocate of the street hail livery bill signed into to law in February 2012 which expanded legal street-hail service beyond the borough of Manhattan. The measures enacted by the law have improved the accessibility and quality of transportation services across the city, particularly, in historically under served communities.
Cira has dedicated over 20 years to servicing the city’s private transportation sector and in the process has become an expert in the field. In 2009, she launched the successful radio program La Hora del Conductor which airs every Saturday at 3:00 p.m. on Univision/Radio WADO 1280 am. The program has become an essential source for industry specific news, and a forum for discussion of important issues affecting the industry. The program seeks to inform listeners on the influential rules, regulations, and enforcement measures that are enacted and executed by governments and taxi industry regulators. It also discusses the best practices for industry professionals when dealing with insurance matters, health issues, workers compensation claims, as well as other key areas.
In addition to her work in the transportation sector, Cira has been actively engaged in the development of the Latino community in New York City. She has served on the boards of the Association of Progressive Dominicans (ACDP) and the Puerto Rican Family Institute, and continues to serve on the board of Hostos Community College.
Cira’s efforts have earned her numerous citations and proclamations from the New York City Council, New York State Legislature, and various other organizations. They include being honored as the “2012 Latina Businesswoman of the Year” by the New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. She was recognized as a “Woman of Merit” in 2012 by El Diario La Prensa, the largest and oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in New York City. She also received the “Hermanas Mirabal Award of Outstanding Merit” by the Counsel General of the Dominican Republic.
Cira was born in Villa Trina, Moca, Dominican Republic, a rural town just outside the capital city of Espaillat Province in the country’s northern Cibao Region. She attended the Universidad Catolica Madre y Maestra and graduated with a degree in Industrial Engineering. She emigrated from the Dominican Republic in 1986, and today lives in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
