November 11, 2013 - Weichert Workforce Mobility, one of the world’s leading workforce mobility management companies-today announced the opening of its Latin America Center of Excellence. This Center of Excellence represents the latest step in the growth of the company’s strategic global presence, coming on the heels of the opening of a new Weichert office in Singapore earlier this year.
Conveniently located in the heart of Miami’s Blue Lagoon business district, Weichert’s Latin America Center of Excellence will provide full relocation and assignment management services as well as local destination assistance to inbound, outbound and intra-regional assignees. It will also better position the company to support the increasing number of employees being relocated into the region for business and manage on-the-ground suppliers.
"The opening of our Latin America Center of Excellence reflects the growing importance our global clients are placing on this region as a key market," said Aram Minnetian, president of Weichert Workforce Mobility. "The workforce mobility needs that companies have within Latin America have evolved and become more sophisticated over the last few years, and with our expanded presence and local expertise and resources, we are very well positioned to meet the increasing demands of these companies."
This Center of Excellence will be overseen by Gustavo Higuera, regional vice president, who joined Weichert in 2012. A fluent Spanish, Portuguese and English speaker, Higuera has over 20 years of experience helping companies successfully deploy and manage mobile workforces throughout Latin America.
"Our Latin America Center of Excellence represents an exciting and significant milestone in Weichert’s evolution," said Higuera. "It will enable us to deliver an even wider range of custom solutions to companies moving employees into, across or out of the LATAM region."
