New Branch in North America – Success with Team Spirit
Dynamic economic development and great growth potential in Mexico - these are convincing arguments for a new location. SKIDATA is building on its engagement in Mexico with the opening of a new branch. We have been active in Mexico for quite some time and have already achieved great success with its parking space management solutions for Fundidora Park, the first public city park in northern Mexico, as well as TecnoParque in Mexico City. As general manager, Ryan Rhoades is responsible for Mexico. Before joining our company, initially as external consultant in 2014, Ryan worked in the Chemicals Industry for over 18 years in Germany. From the very beginning, a hands-on approach was a must for him and his team in Mexico. The team has worked with full enthusiasm to securing new facilities, implementing SKIDATA processes for customer service and engagement, hiring of employees, and offering new customers premium solutions.
Teamwork in Mexico: Work hard - play hard
Ryan is excited about his Mexican colleagues: "In the 25 years I've been making my way across the globe, I have rarely encountered people who are as authentic and hardworking as Mexicans." SKIDATA Mexico is committed to the principle that the team as a whole is responsible for success much more than any one individual. The strong team spirit is not only demonstrated by the close cooperation across all departments to ensure a perfect project closure. This also becomes evident in many social activities like celebrating feasts together.
Another quality of the operations in Mexico is the personal relationships between business partners. Trust is the basis of each business relationship. A personal promise counts more than an anonymous contract, after all.
Careers at SKIDATA - Right mindset wanted
A positive demeanor among employees is especially important for Ryan. Trainings and professional development courses ensure that employees' technical expertise grows. However, each applicant should themselves bring a solution-oriented approach to the table. Not only in Mexico are engagement and fun in the development of innovative solutions valued; these qualities are a firm part of the company culture and are fostered in each of our branches worldwide.
