& The Caribbean
Here in Latin America and the Caribbean, we believe in equal opportunities for all; to us, equality is key to unlocking real impact both within the workplace and our research fields.
We recognise that excellence is not distinguished between gender types or any other single factor that makes people unique. This is reflected in our workplace, where we respect and welcome all individuals regardless of their gender identity, an ethos we also hold true within our wider communities.
We believe that through different and unique viewpoints, we're able to truly understand the challenges of the diverse range of customers we work with.
Our team covers the vast scope of Latin America and the Caribbean, with colleagues based across the region. We constantly seek new ways to support the communities we work with, and to get research into the hands of those making decisions about things that matter.
Introduction to the team
Our Latin America and the Caribbean team has representatives in São Paulo, Brasília, Mexico City, La Coruña, and Panamá City; covering a total of 45 countries throughout the region.
Our team can speak six languages and has a love for travelling and getting to know the diverse and multicultural territory we serve.
We are proud to work with more than 400 universities and learning institutions around Latin America and the Caribbean, allowing us to help disseminate the impact of meaningful research.
If you’d like to contribute to these topics, please get in touch.
As a team, we are proud to follow in the footsteps of the wider business to lead the drive towards a more sustainable future. As a company we’ve aligned our research to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Personally, we like to help out as much as possible by committing our time and efforts to support our local communities by utilising the Emerald volunteering days. Some of our proudest achievements include creating and distributing essentials packs to the homeless in the streets of São Paulo, to partnering with NAIA – an NGO that runs an extra curriculum school for underprivileged students in aid of International Literacy Day. We believe everyone has a role to play towards social responsibility, and we won’t stop here.

We currently have brand ambassadors across Latin America and The Caribbean. Through their hard work, they are helping us foster collaboration, support authors ready to publish and get research to the right people. We believe, with all the challenges the world is facing globally, the ambassador role has never been more important.
Marcos Ferasso, Assistant Professor, Unochapecó; Associate Researcher, Universidad de Lima; Visiting Professor, Wroclaw University of Economics and Business.
'I believe that my efforts in research and my personal and professional goals in becoming a researcher at international level are the main motivations to become a brand ambassador.'
Consuelo García de la Torre, Professor Emeritus of Management and Marketing, EGADE Business School, Tecnológico de Monterrey and Universidad de Monterrey.
'My motivation to being an Emerald Brand Ambassador is academic and practical. First, because I have been a researcher attached to the National System of Researchers (SNI Mexico) for 15 years and I have carried out research as a leader of national and international networks. In these networks I share knowledge, and experience.'
Maria Alejandra Gonzalez-Perez, Professor of Management, Universidad EAFIT.
'I have had very positive experiences as an Emerald author and books and journals' area editor, so becoming an ambassador was a natural step for me.’
Kit Fai Pun, Professor of Industrial Engineering and Management, The University of the West Indies.
'Being an academic and researcher, I love connecting with people, and promoting scholarly work and publishing. I value becoming a brand ambassador of Emerald as this can enhance my personal brand and build relationships with a wide network of people.'
Andreas Rosenkranz, Professor of Engineering, Universidad de Chile; Associate Editor of Industrial Lubrication and Tribology, Emerald Publishing.
'I have been working for many years as an Associate Editor for Industrial Lubrication and Tribology. In this sense, I feel very well connected with Emerald and I am, therefore, very comfortable to represent Emerald. I like to share interesting scientific content with my network since this always kick-starts new discussions, which potentially end up in new ideas for experiments and research projects. It gives me the possibility to broaden my scientific spectrum and horizon by going though and checking the last "hot-topics" of Emerald.'
Juan Carlos Sosa Varela, Dean and Professor of International Business at the School of Business and Entrepreneurship, Universidad Ana G. Méndez; Associate Editor of the European Business Review, Emerald Publishing.
'It’s a program that helps to support our research communities, especially in Latin America. The need for more research on emerging markets has reached almost vox populi status in many business disciplines. The brand ambassadors provide support to authors who plan their research process and publish. I enjoy interacting with the research community and share my passion for making a difference in academia and the business ecosystem.'
