Barbachano International, Inc. (BIP), the premier leader of human capital solutions in Mexico, Latin America, and the United States, honored its longest-serving employee Jorge Roldan, who celebrated his 20th anniversary with the company on January 18. The milestone was commemorated with a luncheon where Mr. Roldan was praised by his peers who remembered and shared many special moments and achievements.
Mr. Roldan joined BIP in 1999, at the age of 24. 20 years later, Mr. Roldan is still with the company. His first job was as executive search consultant, then recruiting manager and later recruiting director, before being promoted in 2006 to vice president, his current position.
“These past 20 years at BIP have been a great life experience and very rewarding,” said Mr. Roldan. “I’ve worked hard in supporting the firm exceed its goals and achieve growth during these two decades. With hard work, dedication and resilience, the impossible can be achieved, as long as you commit to the long run. I’ve always believed in people; I love my job because what I do matters. At the end of the day, it makes an impact. I help people further their career ambitions. I help companies hire the best talent. Making a difference is always a good thing.”
In 1992, Founder Berenice Barbachano recognized a need to connect multinational companies with multicultural executive talent where she couldn’t find any career opportunities for herself.This was the company’s motivation and founding spirit with its original inception and remains the same today: to impact the personal and professional growth of the candidates we represent and the profitability of the companies we support.
“Jorge has carried out our founder’s vision through his ongoing commitment to excellence,” said CEO Fernando Ortiz-Barbachano. “People are and always will be our greatest asset. We are very proud of Jorge’s dedication, loyalty, abilities, and his many contributions. They are a very important part of what Barbachano International is today.”
During his tenure, Mr. Roldan has built a successful recruitment practice in human resources, supply chain management and manufacturing operations, completing over 400 keys leadership search assignments in the Americas. He has seen explosive growth over the past two decades, as Barbachano International has gone from a small, family-owned company to a global corporation with allied offices in over 40 countries.
When asked why he’s stayed with the company for so long and what makes it unique for him, Mr. Roldan said, “I found in BIP a company that offered me challenges, career growth, development, and stability, as well as belonging to a highly dedicated and passionate group of career professionals with a strong focus on impacting people’s lives and helping companies become more successful.”
As for the next 20 years, Mr. Roldan’s vision is to continue to help people and companies reach their goals and hopes to achieve this by working tirelessly and keeping up with new industry trends.
