Dino Forte, CEO & Founder, Ventrica commented: “We chose Jamaica because of its strong synergy with British and Western culture, the ease of doing business, it’s highly educated and English-speaking workforce, competitive costs and quality infrastructure. It is also a highly experienced BPO destination already servicing global brands. Montego Bay has a solid reputation as a hub for BPO operations in Jamaica due to the availability of good contact centre space, great staff, a solid and stable communications and technology infrastructure and let’s not forget, great beaches. All these things combined convinced us to expand into Jamaica. We are grateful for the strong support we have received from the Jamaican Government – JAMPRO, The Department of International Trade and the British High Commission.”
Acting British High Commissioner to Jamaica, Daniel Shepherd commented: “UK investment in Jamaica continues to diversify as Ventrica becomes the first British-based BPO to set up shop in Jamaica, providing hundreds of needed jobs in a time of uncertainty. It is a positive signal to prospective investors looking at this market. Our trade team in Kingston played its part and is here to provide valuable expertise and help to forge linkages that will add value to both our economies.”
Norman Naar, Vice-President from JAMPRO added: “We are pleased with Ventrica’s announcement to launch in Jamaica. Having supported their decision-making process, over the past five months, we are confident their presence in Jamaica will be a success.
