Nearshore Americas has named Mexico City-based British journalist Matt Kendall as its new Chief Editor.
“Having both an editorial and software background, Matt is well positioned to be an important contributor to the ongoing growth of Nearshore Americas,” stated Kirk Laughlin, Founder and Managing Director of the publication, which has long been a ‘must-read’ for people in global services industry across the Americas.
Matt brings a wealth of editorial experience and industry knowledge to the table, as he has spent most of his journalistic career in the Latin American region closely assessing the technology and services industry.
An avid student of the English language, Matt’s editorial career began as a technical writer and implementation technician for a small ERP software developer in Britain. He then moved to Mexico to teach English to business clients and provide his own bespoke editorial consultancy services.
This move opened up the opportunity for him to become senior editor for Mexico Business Publishing in Mexico City, where he focused on some of the biggest industries in the country. After that, Matt became a correspondent for BNamericas, where he reported on IT and telecommunications developments in the Central American and Caribbean regions.
Matt’s goal is to further solidify Nearshore Americas’ reputation as the leading source for IT, BPO, and services developments affecting the nearshore, giving readers an even better platform to connect, collaborate and learn more about the industry.
“It’s become apparent to us over the years that there are numerous benefits to operating within Latin America when doing reporting and research for Nearshore Americas. Matt’s base in Mexico City affords us a tremendous advantage in meeting regularly with key influencers and getting a pulse on the IT and BPO industries of Latin America,” Laughlin added.
