Latin Trade has announced that Endeavor Entrepreneur and CEO of Globant Martin Migoya has won the Emerging CEO of the Year award in their seventeenth annual BRAVO Business Awards. Award winners are first nominated by Latin Trade readers, and then chosen by the editorial staff based on their contributions to leadership and progress in Latin America. The award ceremony will be a black-tie affair in Miami this October.
Martin has helped to develop Globant, formed in 2003 in Argentina, into a significant international player in the IT services industry with a staff of over 1,500 professionals. In a busy 2011 the company has acquired the San Francisco based IT developer Nextive, and announced plans to increase their staff by two hundred engineers over the next year and half. Their strategy is to “proactively invest in initiatives that enable rapid and efficient development of their clients’ projects,” and they have grown faster than any other software business in Latin America.
Prior to co-founding Globant, Martin was the Latin America Regional Business Manager at Origin BV Holland, and Project Manager for REPSOL-YPF, Argentina’s largest oil-and-gas company. He has been an Endeavor Entrepreneur since 2005.
