UST Global , leading provider of IT services and solutions for Global 1000 and Fortune 500 enterprises, today announced that Former Mexican President Vicente Fox paid his first-ever visit to the U.S. headquarters of UST Global on July 16 to announce the exclusive partnership agreement between UST Global and Centro Fox, the state-of-the-art presidential library and learning center dedicated to leadership development throughout Mexico and Latin America. The partnership will result in the expansion of UST Globalâ€™s innovative IT services and solutions to support the Latin American operations of global enterprises, as well as local organizations based within the region.
â€œUST Global is partnering with Centro Fox in order to help accomplish nothing less than the transformation of my country into a world-class technology economy,â€ said Fox. â€œTogether we will establish Mexico at the forefront of the information technology revolution in the region.
â€œWe chose UST Global as our sole partner for the all-important work of transforming IT in Mexico for three reasons,â€ he continued. â€œFirst, at UST Global quality means getting things right the first time, in a cost-effective way. Second, UST Global considers itself a strategic partner and thinks ahead for ways to either making money or saving money for clients, and third, UST Global is willing to share the risks and take ownership of outcomes in order to ensure their clientsâ€™ success.â€
As part of the agreement, UST Global will make a significant investment in terms of creating an infrastructure of new development centers. It has also already begun providing technical training for thousands in the Mexican workforce.
The combined presence of UST Global and Centro Fox 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.
â€œOnce again, President Fox has provided a lesson in leadership and vision by example. This is a truly historic agreement and we at UST Global are excited to be a part of it,â€ said Sajan Pillai, CEO of UST Global. Â â€œMembers of the UST Global and Centro Fox team have come together for the past several months to develop this vision for the future of IT in Latin America. We are all confident that we will soon make this vision a reality.â€
