Investing in the Power of People

Author: Astound Careers

At Astound Commerce, we are committed to our long-term success in Colombia, a country that plays a vital role in company operations. Proud to have a presence in this vibrant nation brimming with culture, opportunity, and passionate people who reflect and drive our own commitment to excellence, we are confident that our Colombian operations will continue to thrive with the recent appointment of Juan Carlos Morales as Astound’s first local Country Manager.

An energetic and passionate leader, Morales has more than 16 years of experience working in the IT Services and Technology sector for companies including Rootstack Panama, Globant, R4 Technologies, and Hewlett-Packard. Before his appointment as Country Manager, Morales served as a QA Functional Manager within our Solutions Organization, which he joined in November 2021.

In his new role, JC Morales will work in tandem with business partners across the organization to devise and implement strategy, fuel employee engagement, support key programs and initiatives, consolidate operations in Colombia and throughout the region, and attract new talent to ensure exponential growth through 2023 and beyond.

At Astound, we believe in the importance of attracting top talent and have made significant investments in the country, including opening a new state-of-the-art office in Medellín that will serve as a hub for our expanding regional operations. Additionally, we have established remote working positions for our Colombian team members and offer competitive benefits and opportunities for career advancement in a collaborative, flexible working environment.

In our ongoing commitment to the region’s long-term success and to cultivating talent, we have conducted five boot camps for Colombians interested in pursuing a career in web development since 2020. Presented through a mix of online and in-person classes, these training and recruitment sessions focused on JavaScript or quality assurance (QA) and provided select, top-performing graduates an opportunity to join Astound.

We are delighted to have Juan Carlos on board and believe his appointment will help fuel business growth in Colombia and the broader Latin American market. With a strong team and a clear focus on talent development, we are well positioned to continue driving successful results for our business, our customers, and our people for years to come.
