Mexico City, MEX. (August 3rd, 2021) - ESQ is pleased to announce the hiring of Ernesto Elias, an industry veteran who will join the company as the Director of Latin America. Ernesto is a graduate of Tecnológico de Monterrey, a prestigious educational institution in Mexico, and holds additional degrees from both ISDI and IPADE Business School. Alongside his wealth of education, Ernesto brings over 20 years of financial industry expertise to ESQ. Previously, Ernesto worked as a Managing Partner at Abaton Technologies where he directed numerous aspects of the business such as increasing the efficiency of the managed services offered.  

With more than 18 years of experience specifically in the ATM industry, Ernesto has a proven track record of leading teams towards increased sales, productivity, and profitability. ESQ is dedicated to ensuring each team member plays a pivotal role in achieving established customer goals. Ernesto’s result oriented leadership style naturally situates him as an excellent fit for this collaborative company culture. 

“I’m very excited to join ESQ especially as a former client,” said Ernesto. “Keeping that perspective in mind, I believe this unique experience will be extremely beneficial to my success in this new position because I understand exactly what customers are looking for. It was an easy decision for me to join such a reputable company that has so many inspiring initiatives on the go.” 

One of the most recent initiatives at ESQ was the launch of an independent FinTech company, Cloudexa. Software as a Service (SaaS) business models continue to gain traction across the financial services industry and Ernesto plans to actively promote Cloudexa in the Latin American market. When asked about his take on this initiative, Ernesto highlighted that there are ”several organizations looking to move to the cloud” and that there is “endless potential with the cloud-based solutions that Cloudexa has to offer customers.” 

In his new role, Ernesto will be a primary leader of ESQ’s well-established Latin America team. He will be responsible for architecting new solutions based on customer requirements as well as provide his insights on growing the footprints of both ESQ and Cloudexa in this region of the world. 

“Ernesto is an innovator who relentlessly pursues new ideas,” mentioned Paul Sandhu, Chief Executive Officer of ESQ. “All of us thrive off of this degree of creativity and overall startup mentality. As an experienced technologist and solutions architect, he will not hold back his opinions on the new solutions we need to develop in order to realize continued success in the future. We are honored to have him join us.”
