Commenting on the expansion, Jim McGrath, President, APAC Customer Services, stated, "Panama continues to be a strategic part of our global network and solution strategy for our clients. Not only do we have a great legacy in Panama, but the continued commitment from our clients, employees, leadership team, and the Panama community is a positive combination as we continue to invest in the marketplace.
