IE is taking an important and decisive step to further consolidate its presence in North America: opening a new IE Center in Miami. The center, which will be under the responsibility of Guillermo Montes, current IE South US, Puerto Rico and Caribbean Region Managing Director, will work to further deepen the IE brand awareness within the region as well as strengthened the ties with corporations in the area. «It has been an interesting journey to build this strategy over the past years», says Guillermo, who now runs all the operations from an office space at Blue Lagoon area. «When I arrived here in 2006, there were only four IE alumni and now we are over 200. And with the new strategy for this region, the future looks even more promising».

According to Alessandro Bartolini, Senior Vice President for Sabadell United Bank and an IE Alumni, Florida and its booming financial sector has become the «Switzerland for Latin American investors». «There are several opportunities in this market and more recently the city has attracted a new wave of investments from Brazilians, Venezuelans, Argentinean, and Colombians».

The vibrant economy has also been calling the attention of several IE recent graduates, who are considered a great «fit» for the local companies, always searching for high-talented professionals with global mindset and a Latino flavor. To be fluent in Spanish and English is a must for the companies based in the area, since the positions frequently require doing business with Latin American companies.  «IE played an important role into my decision to move to this market» says Evangelos Koves, Global MBA alumn from Greece who moved to Florida over 2 years ago and now works as a Customer Support Manager for Titan Concrete.

The opening of the center is scheduled for the next October 29th, at the JW Marriot, in Brickel, Miami. Approximately 70 attendees are expected to take part in the launching ceremony that will be chaired by IE´s International Development Director, William Davila.
