Carlota Blom, director of sales for Latin America at Lexmark, welcomed the attendees, highlighting the value of resuming face-to-face meetings as a great opportunity to meet again and recognize each other beyond a screen. “The pandemic brought us challenges and technology was a great ally to continue with business processes, it made us more empathetic and open to change. Today we have the opportunity to meet again and talk about the challenges and how we were able to overcome them,” said Blom.
The meeting was held in Miami and was attended by participants from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Panama and the Dominican Republic, who throughout three days of activities interacted with senior executives of the brand and their peers from other countries, to share experiences and learn about the latest news from Lexmark’s broad portfolio of solutions and products.
