The Bogotá office will be MCI’s seventh in Latin America since it opened its first there in 2009. Its six other offices are in Argentina, Brazil and Chile.

The MCI Latin America team has more than 180 employees, with MCI Colombia aiming to build on the team by creating 40 full-time positions in the future.

Mariano Castex, managing director of MCI Latin America, said: "MCI Colombia will bring unique solutions to companies, brands and associations based in the country, nearby region and the Caribbean.

"Our long-established experience and knowledge of this fast-paced Latin America region will help us meet our clients’ needs, attract new clients and increase business results to consolidate their position in the Colombian market.

Richard Torriani, chief operating officer of MCI Americas, added: "Our latest addition in Colombia will also help increase our growth and prominence in the Americas. By adding to our ten other offices in Canada, Latin America and the US, this will enable us to tap into new and diverse areas, while reaffirming our commitment to the region."
