Geneviève Bertrand – Kruger Inc.

Don’t only talk infotech with Geneviève Bertrand. She’ll be the first to acknowledge the people she oversees are better versed in its nuts and bolts, but that’s only half the business. Just as important is recognizing where IT is needed and applying it to enhance operations. That’s what she does as chief information officer at […]

Edgard Jaramillo – Microlink

While agriculture is one of the biggest industries in Latin America, Edgard Jaramillo doesn’t think there’s been enough investment in digital infrastructure for it. “We see that as a huge opportunity,” the general manager of Microlink says. “And it’s not just about financial gain. It’s about the ability to have greater social impact.” Microlink, based […]

Martín Vera – Seguros SURA

If pipes burst in your building, you’d want to be insured yesterday, not tomorrow. Time is of the essence, says Martín Vera, who the past eight years has led digital transformations in the financial and insurance industries. He’s also helped generate new digital sales channels and enhanced the relationship of customers to self-service channels—think websites, […]

Baldomero Gutierrez – Fresnillo PLC

He’s in the homestretch of a lengthy infotech career, though Baldomero Gutierrez probably never will be one for the rocking chair. He’s too active. Plus, he’s now finding his working life at its most fulfilling, so retirement can wait another three or four years. In 2008, he was promoted to chief technology officer for Mexican […]

Carlos Fournier – ANCAP

The first digital transformation Carlos Fournier recalls brought more color to his life—literally. Growing up in his native Uruguay in the 1980s, he watched black and white TVs. When his family got a color set, it was as dramatic as getting his first computer when he was 15, he says. Though he’s only 38, those […]

Juan Pablo Luengas Restrepo – Progreso

When tremors began shaking Guatemala in November 1917, no one expected they’d continue through late January 1918—or change how the Central American nation is built. But after Guatemala City was almost completely destroyed, it was rebuilt with cement that better withstood the rumblings and convulsions of tremors and earthquakes, and the work became a foundation […]

Juan Carlos Carrillo – Karisma Hotels & Resorts

Juan Carlos Carrillo doesn’t believe COVID-19 has ruined the tourism and hospitality industry. It’s changed it, though, and in some ways, that’s been for the better, he believes. As the director of IT for Karisma Hotels & Resorts, Carrillo has been introducing new technology services and tools to keep guests safe and comfortable. From touchless […]

David Israel León Sunko – Enex

Whether it’s by extending subway lines in Santiago, Chile, or providing technical support to the country’s national health care network, David Israel León loves making connections. And those connections have paid off. The digital network he strengthened for Enex, the Chilean distributor of Shell Oil products including fuels, lubricants, asphalts and chemical products, has been […]

Abel Bautista – Uniclick

So was that person on TV living inside the box? How could they fit into a space like that? To answer that pressing question, young Abel Bautista took apart the family television. Though he found no one amid the tubes and wiring, he did find he could take things apart and put them back together […]

Juan Carlos Beltran – Banco Pichincha

Chief information security officer of Ecuador’s biggest bank since July 2019, Juan Carlos Beltran thinks that to be successful, HR is critical. Every year, he meets with the human resources department to identify training and certification needed for security staff. Also, as is his standard practice, when incorporating new components to security architecture, he ensures […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
