Who we are

IRMA C. LOPEZ
Meet our President
Irma is a daughter of Mexican immigrants who came from Jalisco, Mexico. She was born in Chicago and maintains her residence on the SW side of the city. Growing up in the most diverse parts of the city, she knows and relates to the needs of our minority communities first hand.
She inherited her strong work ethic from her parents and has a great sense of respect for the dignity of others. She continues to build that same trust in her own family, her children, and grandchildren with her loving Husband of over 25 years.
Our consulting relationships rely heavily on our strategic selection of quality people and successful partnerships in Illinois' small business communities.
As government entities and corporations continue to practice good faith efforts and increase diversity spend, ICL Consulting, LLC is committed to helping women and minority-owned business scale with the aid of resources and programs made available to each.
