About Us

Barbachano International, Inc. (BIP) was founded in 1992 to help multi-national companies cope with their recruitment needs and human resource problems in Mexico. As our client’s human capital needs grew not only in Mexico but also in the United States and our clients expanded to South America, we introduced new solutions to satisfy their needs. In addition to recruitment & executive search, we introduced executive coaching, and outplacement through our sister company, Challenger Gray & Christmas S.C. Although much has changed since we started nearly a quarter century ago, “helping people and companies grow” remains our mission. We believe that people are at the center of our client’s success and that the war on talent requires an expert who understands our client’s business, cares about recruiting, developing and retaining the best and brightest, and becomes a trusted advisor.

Our solutions are aimed at companies with multi-cultural workforces, Spanish speaking markets or Mexico & Latin American business involvement. We are headquartered in San Diego, California with sister offices in Tijuana and Mexico City. We also have allied offices in Sao Paulo, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Lima, and in over 20 cities throughout the United States. Our reach is global and includes North, Central and South America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific.

Today, BIP is the marketplace leader for human capital solutions in Mexico and Latin America. Our expertise has been built by providing key talent and HR support to over 200 successful start-up operations and the completion of over 5000 successful marriages between companies and people. Our high impact search approach is based on a proprietary process based search methodology and specialty niche industry practice groups. The industries we service in our search division include manufacturing, technology, software, life sciences, energy, telecom, consumer goods, chemicals, retail and other sectors. Our manufacturing expertise includes automotive, aerospace, medical devices, plastics, electronics, metals fabrication, and food processing, amongst others. Over the years, our group has provided solutions to over half of FORTUNE 500 companies including Toyota, Johnson & Johnson, Concur, Emerson Electric, Sempra, Kimberly Clark, Fujitsu, Bombardier, and Kellogg’s Company.
