UST Global has announced a partnership with Centro Fox, the presidential library and learning centre in Mexico dedicated to leadership development in Latin America.

UST Global is a leading provider of IT services and solutions for Global 1000 and Fortune 500 enterprises and has a development centre at Technopark here.

EXPANDED FOOTPRINT

The former Mexican President, Mr Vicente Fox, visited the US headquarters of UST Global to announce the agreement, a UST Global spokesperson said here.

The partnership will expand UST Global’s footprint to support the Latin American operations of global enterprises as well as local organisations based in the region.

Their combined presence will offer reduced operational costs to clients through information technology services and solutions.

These services and solutions will also add value through innovation, with a particular focus on the retail, banking, telecommunications, oil and gas sectors.

JOINING BOARD

As part of the agreement, UST Global will make a ‘significant investment’ in terms of creating the infrastructure of new development centres.

Mr Fox announced that Mr Sajan Pillai, Chief Executive Officer, UST Global, has accepted an invitation to join the board of directors of Centro Fox.

UST Global is already providing technical training to thousands of the Mexican work force.

According to Mr Fox, the partnership will help accomplish “nothing less than the transformation of my country into a world-class technology economy.”

CLIENT SUCCESS

“Together we will establish Mexico at the forefront of the information technology revolution in the region.

“UST Global is willing to share the risks and take ownership of outcomes in order to ensure their clients’ success,” he added.

According to Mr Pillai, this is a truly historic agreement and UST Global is excited to be a part of it.

Meanwhile, Mr Fox said he plans to visit India in September to tour UST Global’s facilities in various cities.
