TORONTO, Nov. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - The Ingle Group of Companies announces
the opening of its new office in São Paulo, Brazil, a welcome addition
to Ingle's business initiatives in Santiago de Chile and Buenos Aires.
Offices in Latin America add to Ingle International's existing
operations across Canada, the USA, Mexico, the UK, France, Germany,
and Malta, demonstrating the company's focus on these key global
markets. Ingle International has been providing customized insurance
solutions to international students, travellers, and expatriates
worldwide since 1946. The company's recent commitment to Latin America
comes at a time when this region is demonstrating an increased business
and consumer need for Ingle's products, services, technology,
capabilities, and expert knowledge.
"Brazil has a rapidly growing economy, and we see the importance of
focusing our efforts in this area of the world," says Business
Development Manager (Brazil), Daniela Barakat. Born in Brazil, Barakat
completed her education in Business and Marketing in São Paulo, and has
strong ties to Canada. Her international experience gives her a deeper
understanding of the needs of travellers from this country and
businesses within it.
"In the last couple of decades, Brazil has experienced economic and
social changes that translate into having a stronger and larger middle
class today," explains Barakat. "Brazilians are itching to travel and
to learn, and Canada is their number one destination. With more choices
at their fingertips, and with programs such as Science without Borders,
Brazil is one of the leaders in education and travel in the hemisphere.
Ingle International recognizes the strength the country has in these
different industries, and sees the potential of providing Brazilians
with choices that meet their travel needs by offering our high-quality
assistance and travel insurance."
Ingle's Brazilian operations will initially focus on its international
student business, where strengthening local strategic partnerships is
seen as the key to developing new business. "Schools and universities
have different needs than businesses or other organizations. Having
Ingle offices in a student's home country and in the country where they
choose to pursue their overseas studies is a real advantage,"
says Robin Ingle, Chairman of Ingle International. "We are responding
to local needs by choosing to work with local partners and governments
around the world."
Through its associated travel assistance company Intrepid 24/7, Ingle
International will also focus on expanding its medical provider
networks in the region, resulting in improved emergency and security
assistance services for international travellers in Latin America.
Intrepid 24/7 represents many global insurance and assistance
companies, assisting travellers worldwide.
