Fremont, CA – December 7, 2020 – Rahi, a global IT solutions provider, has announced a $5 million capital investment within the Latin American market. The move comes as Rahi continues its global growth strategy within the IT, data center, and enterprise campus infrastructure industries.
Over the next two years, Rahi will invest $5 million into developing its presence across Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico, and the company expects to create 50 jobs. Recruitment is underway for the new jobs, including Customer Success Managers, Technical Project Managers, Networking Engineers, and Field Operations Crews.
Rahi employs over 800 staff in 30 locations worldwide, and the company provides Enterprise IT, Data Center, Infrastructure, Networking, Collaboration and Security solutions. This strategic expansion into another global location allows Rahi to deliver efficient IT solutions directly and cost-effectively to this new market.
The company strategically identified Latin America to expand its global footprint and accommodate Latin America’s need for solutions and services that maximize the market’s IT infrastructure’s performance, scalability, and efficiency. The company will be one of the first IT systems integrators to provide full lifecycle technology solutions into these countries and commit to ongoing investment in the region.
The strong impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Latin American market has accelerated the need for digital transformation. The deployment of IT infrastructure, data centers, collaboration tools, storage, and security solutions has become a key factor for local companies to stay operational and productive during lockdown phases.
Tarun Raisoni, CEO of Rahi, says, “The workplace environment has rapidly changed due to the global pandemic of 2020. The trends that have emerged are not fleeting but are here to stay as companies move to hybrid workplace models. Alongside this, the core infrastructures which support essential IT operations of the business have shifted. We have made the decision to expand into this region as we have a proven track record of working with and accelerating our customer’s success stories.“
Rahi has tasked an experienced professional in heading up its IT infrastructure solutions and leading the expansion in Latin America. Juliana Juliao, Director of Operations, Brazil, says, “Rahi will bring consistent project deliveries throughout the region, not only meeting the goals and expectations of our Global Customers, but also supporting the Latin American market, supporting them in their growth.”
At a time when organizations are scaling quickly and globally, they require the least amount of vendors to interact with. Rahi’s partner landscape uniquely positions them to offer one single point of contact who is committed to advancing and elevating technology globally.
Several new appointments to the management team have been announced. Juliana Juliao will act as Director of Operations of Brazil, Mariano Schilling as Vice President of Finances and Regional Sales for Rahi in LATAM will be managed by Francisco Lafee.
The expansion of Rahi’s global footprint into Latin America will soon see the introduction and seamless integration of its audio and video and data center solutions into new and existing IT infrastructures within the local marketplace.
