Hugo E. Martinez (born January 10, 1957) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since April 2014. Born in Puerto Rico, Martinez is the first LDS Church general authority from the Caribbean.[1][2]

Martinez was born in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. In 1981, he received a doctor of medicine degree from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine and did his medical residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

In 1982, while doing his residency in Mississippi, Martinez and his wife became members of the LDS Church. After completing his medical residency in 1984 he returned to Puerto Rico to work as a medical doctor.[3] He has served in various assignments in the LDS Church including bishop, district president, and president of the Guatemala Guatemala City Central Mission.[4] Martinez was an area seventy in the Caribbean Area from 2009 until he became a general authority and member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy at the church's April 2014 general conference.[5] Since August 1, 2014, Martinez has been serving as second counselor in the presidency of the church's Caribbean Area.[6]

In the October 2014 LDS General Conference, Martinez was among the first to take advantage of the opportunity to deliver his sermon in his native language of Spanish, rather than English.[7][8]
