The Hispanic IT Executive Council (HITEC) launched HITEC Mexico last week, representing a new chapter of the organization and a bridge between technology executives in Mexico and the US.

HITEC Mexico will provide members with the opportunity to advance their organizations by developing focused and informed leaders and role models.

“The idea behind HITEC Mexico was to create a platform for technology executives from both countries to share and build upon ideas and build stronger technology leadership teams,” said Andre Arbelaez, president of HITEC and SVP and chief strategy officer, Softtek.

“HITEC Mexico will give its members opportunities to share and learn about evolving trends in the technology industry and technology leadership while positioning them as leaders in the sector and in their own companies.”

MexicoIT was proud to participate as one of the hosts of the event, alongside other leading companies in the Mexican IT industry including AT&T, Hewlett-Packard, PWC, Link America, and Softtek.

“We are pleased to be among the hosts of the HITEC Mexico launch and to be part of this impactful organization,” said Thaddeus Arroyo, CEO, AT&T Mexico and member of the HITEC board of directors.

“By engaging with technology executives in Mexico and bringing them together with their US colleagues, HITEC Mexico builds a strong bond between these leaders in an environment promoting professional and organizational growth. The result will be stronger, more prepared leaders on both sides of the border.”
