Strong relationships within the MGI Worldwide accountancy network help MGI Latin America members make a new start

7th February 2019

MGI World Josefina from MGI P&P Asociados in MGI Jebsen & Co. offices

In the first of several stories about cooperation and assistance between MGI Worldwide global accounting network firms, Ricardo Ruiz Managing Partner at Venezuela-based MGI P&P Asociados, tells us of the case of Josefina Maldonado who, having to move from Venezuela to Argentina, found work at MGI Jebsen & Co., in Buenos Aires.

Due to ongoing problems in Venezuela, Josefina - a former human resources manager at MGI P&P Asociados - was forced to leave her country and move to Argentina. MGI P&P Asociados reached out to colleagues at MGI Jebsen & Co. in Buenos Aires, sending Josefina’s CV and a letter of recommendation, and requesting help in finding her a job in that country. Josefina received an invitation to an interview, and after completing the necessary formalities, was offered a position in the outsourcing accounting department at MGI Jebsen & Co.

Positive results for all concerned

Rafael Faillace, Partner at MGI Jebsen & Co. explains, "Josefina adjusted quickly to both the work method and pace at MGI Jebsen & Co. She quickly learned how to use the local accounting software, which she already manages, and she now interacts directly with clients. She is very organized and has a great ability to perform new tasks. For us, this has been a very positive experience. Josefina’s good character and strong work ethic have allowed her to fit in well within our diverse team.”

Speaking on behalf of member firms in Venezuela, Ricardo expresses his gratitude for all the support that has been given by fellow MGI Worldwide accountancy network members during this difficult period.
