Dallas-based LinkAmerica, a minority-owned IT services and telecommunications company, has tapped veteran executive Pablo Salazar as its new chief technology officer.
Salazar brings what LinkAmerica calls a “trailblazing background” in IT, IT security, and digital transformation to the company. He is the former chief information officer and chief compliance officer at AT&T Mexico, and has more than 28 years of experience in the U.S. and global markets.
LinkAmerica credits Salazar as having an extensive proficiency and a deep knowledge of technology. Previously, he managed a team of more than 1,300 IT professionals, was responsible for integrating multiple organizations, and led IT teams in more than 45 countries.
In his new role, Salazar will be tasked with strengthening and expanding LinkAmerica’s IT initiatives, according to a statement.
“We are excited to welcome Pablo to the LinkAmerica family,” LinkAmerica Founder and CEO Andrés Ruzo said in a statement. “LinkAmerica and Pablo have a joint vision to combine purpose-driven innovation through collaboration and value co-creation to improve our human condition.”
LinkAmerica, founded in 1994, was built on collaboration, innovation, and value co-creation. Its intent is to turn complex advanced technologies into functional solutions so business effectiveness can be increased and customer experience improved.
Through state-of-the-art IoT, LinkAmerica says it optimizes business’ productivity, efficiency, and performance.
The company’s vision is adopted from its name: “Link all the Americas to catalyze sustainable economic growth that drives high impact benefit to communities through purpose-driven communications and technology products and services.”
Salazar will streamline LinkAmerica’s technology goals. His role entails leading the market-facing IT services strategy and planning community-related efforts, along with supporting maximum production efficiency.
It’s a huge get for LinkAmerica, as the Hispanic IT Executive Council has previously recognized Salazar as one of the top 50 most influential IT leaders in LATAM, Spain, and Portugal.
