Having grown in popularity as a platform to carry out social media marketing campaigns, LinkedIn has unveiled its first office in Latin America, according to an article published by Siliconrepublic.com.
The office, located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, will act as a headquarters for the region – supporting around 14 million of the site’s users spread across Latin America.
Osvaldo Barbosa de Oliveira has been appointed as manager of the new Brazilian office.
He commented on the opening of the new office, stating: “There is a huge opportunity in Brazil for LinkedIn’s growth, and I’m excited to oversee the opening of our first office and the establishment of a local team.
“This is a great step in the expansion of our presence in Latin America, as I’m looking forward to helping Brazilian professionals become more productive and successful on LinkedIn,” Oliveira added.
LinkedIn first launched a Portuguese version of the site in April 2010 and has since seen the site’s user base reach a figure of just over 6 million people.
