Press Release

Hellmann celebrates 10 years in Costa Rica and continues to grow in the country

OCTOBER 2nd 2017

• Approximately 50 positions will be created in the upcoming months due to business growth


San Jose, October 2nd, 2017. Hellmann, the services sector company, celebrated 10 years of operations in Costa Rica with plans to continue growing in its local operation.

 The company established in the country thanks to the excellent business climate and the multilingual skills of the Costa Rican human talent. Today, the company has 110 employees developing activities related to finance and accounting through its service center.

 Alexander Mora, Minister of Foreign Trade, congratulated the company and commented "Our country has a proven track record as a top destination for foreign direct investment, with competitive conditions and a healthy economic and political climate. These were some of the elements that made Hellmann bet on Costa Rica. During these years, we have seen the sustained growth of the company, showing its strong commitment and confidence, as well as the success of its business strategy. We are pleased to know that they have become the home of more than a hundred Costa Ricans, with the talent and capabilities required to deliver complex, sophisticated and high value-added services. We congratulate Hellman for its continued reinvestment in the country and expansion of its operations. This demonstrates how the ecosystem of corporate and business services grows and consolidates as a driving force for our economy, placing us in the world as one of the best destinations for this type of activities and as a strategic player in the main global value chains of this competitor sector."

 From Costa Rica, the finance and accounting operations currently provide services to the United States and other parts of the American continent.

 Darlene Recifi, Director of Hellmann's Services Center, said: "Our services center in Costa Rica has worked hard to consolidate different stages of the business over the course of time. We started our operations in this country 10 years ago trusting in the Costa Rican human talent and achieving great results during the time. We hope to continue consolidating our business from Costa Rica for many more years".

 Jorge Sequeira, Managing Director of CINDE, added "Hellmann found in Costa Rica a strategic partner for its services operations in the financial area. The local talent has become a key player and that’s why the company has decided to hire more personnel in the upcoming months. For Costa Rica it’s crucial to continue training technicians and professionals in more demanding careers with multilingual profiles, helping other companies such as Hellmann to create high value-added and well-paid jobs”.

 The company will be looking for personnel with finance and accounting job experience, with desirable logistics knowledge and intermediate to advanced English skills. Those interested can send their curriculum vitae in English to the e-mail address

 Until today the company has made a total investment that exceeds US$ 1.3 million in the country.
