Marcos Jimenez, CEO of Softtek USA, has been ranked as the 45th most influential Latinos in 2017 by Latino Leaders Magazine.

Having spent more than 20 years at Softtek, Marcos has been a key contributor in expanding the company’s client portfolio in the US, while playing a major role in its global expansion across the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

“It is an honor to be included in a list of such influential Latino leaders that have made a prominent mark in their respective fields,” stated Jimenez. “Softtek, a global company with Latin roots, is playing an increasingly relevant role in helping organizations thrive in the digital world. I am proud to take part in expanding that story.”

The list of the 101 Most Influential Latinos is evaluated based on factors such as “how many people are impacted or affected by his or her decisions, and the actions made to advance Latinos in every aspect.”

This isn’t Jimenez’s first time on an influential leaders list. He was recognized as one of the 100 Most Influential Hispanic IT Executives in the US by HITEC for 2012-2016. He was also ranked among the top players in Nearshore Americas’ 2011 Power 50 list, and his thought leadership has been featured in the US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce’s (UMCOC) monthly magazine, The Alliance.

Jimenez is also a member of the US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce and the Pan American Development Foundation.

Softtek recently announced the relocation of its US and Canada headquarters to Dallas from Atlanta, stating that Dallas gives better access to major cities across North America, and is home to a greater number of technology schools. Jimenez will be leading the new headquarters in Dallas.
