Mexico IT is a partnership between the government and the private sector in order to raise the awareness of the Mexican IT industry as the most important nearshore provider.
No country is closer to the United States than Mexico, and benefits of working with the nation’s many service providers include NAFTA-assured free trade, robust IP protection, human capital capabilities, and strong support from the government.
Clients should consider Mexico attractive because of this combination of factors that include competitive total cost of engagement, relatively lower risk and other business drivers as cultural alignment, short travel distance and same time zone.
Guillermo González King
In February 2014, Guillermo González King was appointed Executive Director of Mexico IT, an Industry program operated by Mexico’s National Chamber of Electronic, Telecommunications and Information Technology Industries in a coordinated effort with the country’s Federal Ministry of Economy. The program’s goal is to increase awareness of Mexico’s expanding, global-ready IT ecosystem, showcasing the lasting commitment to building a formidable technology-focused population. This joint effort between industry and government has led to Mexico being positioned by several analyst firms as the most influential Nearshore outsourcing market in the Americas.
Prior to joining Mexico IT, Mr. González King held several positions in ProMexico, Mexico’s Investiment Promotion Agency, and the Ministry of Economy. He has more than 15 year of experience in project management for private firms.
