25 February 2020, Guatemala – Global Lingo is pleased to announce its American expansion, with the addition of an operations hub in Guatemala.

Led by JP Castañeda, Project Manager at Global Lingo, a Central American office has been established since the end of 2019. The team based out of the Guatemala City office will be supporting Global Lingo’s American and wider global operations, to better serve clients based in the Americas and beyond.

With additional project management, finance and linguist management support from this new office location, the American operation is set to improve its efficiencies and expand further, to accommodate growing demand in the region.

JP Castañeda comments: “It’s been a long road but it’s finally here, I’m pleased to help Global Lingo’s expansion to Latin America and lead Team Guate, providing support to our NAM, EMEA and APAC offices around the world.  We are delighted to be part of one of the fastest growing Language Service Providers in the UK”

Karl Eastwood, Chief Operating Officer comments: “Selecting the hub to expand our American operations was an obvious one, once myself and Andrew Trotter, Company Chairman had visited JP in region and saw the potential in the country. Out of the other short-listed locations, Guatemala boasts a whole host of talented individuals with a dedication to excellence.

As was my experience with growing our hub in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, I am excited to work in the Americas region to drive its growth and ensure our company mission and values are maintained ensuring exceptional customer-centric service and language solutions.”
