On the 27th of February, we officially opened our new site in the city of Cali!
We currently employ 400 people in Colombia, a figure we expect to increase over time. Isabel Sánchez Lozano, CEO of Transcom Iberia and Latin America, and Alejandro Menjura, director of Transcom Latin America, hosted the opening.
In her welcome speech, Isabel Sánchez Lozano said that:
“The new center is the most advanced in the region, with five fully-equipped training rooms, relaxation areas, back-up generators, equipped with the most modern technology, redundant communications connected to all Transcom centers globally, and a long list of advanced telephony and multi-channel solutions.”
Isabel praised the work of all who were involved in the center’s launch, achieving it in record time. Moreover, in the opening event, the Mayor of Santiago de Cali, Doctor Rodrigo Guerrero Velazco, made a welcoming speech heralding our potential for growth as a new company in his country. Then we proceeded to cut the ribbon, allowing our guests to visit our facilities, where we showed them a special video made for the occasion.
We were also honored by the presence of Thomas Andersson, National First Officer of Trade from the Swedish embassy in Colombia. Media, television and radio covered the event and interviewed our Directors during the opening cocktail.
Notable among the media were: Noti 5, 90 minutos, Canal 2, Cámara Veedora, Cali tv, and Todos en Familia. They all broadcasted live news of the event, creating a huge impact throughout the region.
