Vernier, Switzerland-based technology and management consulting firm Amaris has opened offices in Bogotá and Medellín, the company announced last month.
Among other work, the company will focus its efforts in Colombia on the provision of recruitment services, human resources, administration, finance, and technical support.
The flagship Medellín office is located in the city’s Ruta N innovation complex, which Amaris said was the right choice for its combination of talent, cost, and institutional support. It also highlighted the geographic benefits of the city’s location in Latin America and the quality of life benefits offered by the Antioquia capital known as the “City of Eternal Spring.”
“Ruta N offered us a pleasant work environment,” said Sara Mondragón, manager of Amaris in Medellin. “Thanks to the other companies installed, we are surrounded by an innovative and challenging environment. We constantly interact with the members of other foreign companies that are part of the Ruta N ecosystem and have been based here for months or even years. We see this as an excellent opportunity to benefit from their knowledge of the Colombian market.”
With its expansion, the company, which employs more than 3,500 people and has an extensive presence in Europe, is making a big splash in Colombia as a South American hub. It now has two of its four Latin American offices in the Andean nation, with the others located in São Paulo and Mexico City.
