Claudio Flores Thomas, PhD., Vice President and Partner of LEXIA Insights & Solutions, our Mexican partner for the IRIS Network and Member of the IRIS Network Council, will preside the AMAI - the Mexican Association focused on the Intelligence Sector applied to Business and Social Affairs, during the 2019 - 2020 period.
The AMAI was founded in Mexico in 1992. It is an independent group of organizations that carry out different phases during the process of data generation and transformation for decision making in social or business areas. It is dedicated to promote the professionalization of that productive chain, and improve its quality, all for a better development of Mexico. To date, it has 74 companies among its associates.
For this designation, Dr. Flores said that he arrives with emotion and desire to do new things to help this industry, which has given so much to its associates, clients and the Mexican society in general. As always, he added, the ultimate goal is to generate more value for the guild and of course for the AMAI associates.
It is our most profound honor to count with Dr. Flores as an IRIS Network Council Member and as our Mexican partner, and we wish him the best for his future endeavors as the President of the AMAI during 2019 - 2020.
