Expanding into the Silicon Valley of Latin America, the new Redfish office is located in Santa Ana, just outside of San José.
Redfish Technology, Inc. (NYSE:RED), a leading nationwide recruiting company focused on the high tech sectors, announced today that it has opened an office in Costa Rica. This new focus marks Redfish’s second expansion into international territory.
The Costa Rican tech sector experienced a boom when Intel, Infosys and Hewlett Packard moved in. A lively high-tech cluster has evolved with the influx of smaller firms, and a very talented pool of highly educated talent has grown there. The Costa Rican government maintains a pro-U.S. stance and aims to attract high-tech corporations to take advantage of Central America’s most educated, computer literate and disciplined workforce; many Forbes 500 companies operate out of Costa Rica.
The synergies of Redfish’s tech talent matchmaking and a growing tech sector in Costa Rica were the subject of discussion between Rob Reeves, CEO of Redfish Technology and Luis Guillermo Solís, who will be sworn in as president on May 8th. Mr. Solís has promised an international campaign to promote Costa Rica as an investment destination, highlighting its political stability and flourishing tech sector.
The chance meeting between president-elect Solís and Redfish CEO Reeves must have been fated. The encounter started when Mr. Solís and the Reeves family collided during a visit to the pristine Costa Rican rainforest on one of the infamous zip line tours. After regaining their bearings over a cup of Café Rica, the ensuing conversation proved more fecund than the surrounding greenery.
After a meeting of the minds, and a quick consultation with the staff back in Sun Valley, the decision was made. Mr. Reeves has announced that in order to best bridge the Silicon Valley of Latin America and North American tech hubs the recruiting company currently serves, that Redfish has opened a new office.
“We chose to locate our newest office in Santa Ana, just outside of San José, because of the incredible growth of the economy here. The city is being transformed from coffee, bananas and cattle to microprocessor production and high-tech telecommunications services,” stated Reeves. “The local tech companies are innovative and growing aggressively, and they still have fantastic coffee.”
Redfish Technology is uniquely positioned to work with the tech companies ranging from stealth-mode start-ups to established Fortune companies across the Americas. The company has two decades of recruiting for the tech sector focused on tech hubs such as Silicon Valley and San Francisco, as well as East Coast tech hot spots in Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey; but that is not the end of it. Redfish is headquartered in Sun Valley Idaho, and has had offices in Rhode Island and San Carlos, Mexico. Geography is an added dimension, one the company relishes in leveraging.
“It’s been an amazing spring break and honestly we weren’t ready to leave. So like we did in the 90s when we opened an office in San Carlos, Mexico we are staying put and recruiting in Santa Ana,” reported Heidi Clark, Chief Humanities Officer of Redfish Technology. “We have asked veteran recruiter and traveler, Meredith Dean to head up relocating current Sun Valley staff to the Santa Ana office, and we will be hiring locally. Pura Vida!”
