Deloitte recently announced that it will open a $20 million USD delivery center in the Mexican state of Querétaro. The “big four” auditing and business consulting firm, through its Deloitte Consulting Group division, plans to make this new location its regional hub for technology services and consulting throughout Latin America.
Jorge Castilla, national director of Deloitte Consulting Group, made the announcement late last month and was joined by Querétaro Governor Francisco Dominguez. He said that the firm expects the center to create around 1,000 jobs over the next three years. Operations will have a tech focus and center on support, development, testing, and maintenance.
“This regional center, which will be one of the four most important in our global network, is a strategic decision by Deloitte,” said Castilla. “And we have chosen Mexico, an extremely important bet for not only our development in the country but also at the regional level.”
”This center is critical to our operations, and will be practically embedded in 70% of what we do in Mexico,” he added. “And I hope that it is makes up a high percentage globally, as do the other three regional centers.”
Queréraro has been attracting more and more attention from global firms in recent years. On top of Deloitte, MetLife announced earlier this year that it would invest around $10 million into a center in the state.
Overall, according to statistics from Mexico’s Secretary of Sustainable Development, the state has grown by 50% over the past six years when it comes to the the business process outsourcing, IT services, and data center industry.
