APC restructures Latin American operations

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Critical power and cooling services company APC has restructured its Latin American operation, establishing its regional headquarters in Mexico City, Jorge Cortez, company VP of IT business for Latin America, told BNamericas.

"Mexico is a very mature market for us and is very relevant in terms of revenue contribution," Cortez said. APC's Latin American region was previously managed from the company's Miami office.

Cortez said APC also decided to form a single structure for the company's operation in Brazil, which will be led by country manager Jesús Carmona. Prior to this restructuring process, the Brazilian operation was part of APC's Latin American operation. "Brazil is becoming a different region for us due to strategic reasons," he added.
