VP of Operations

Marcelo Blanco

Born in Washington D.C. but living most of his life in Bolivia, Marcelo also always strives for perfection in all his activities. As a Civil Engineer, it comes naturally for him to calculate every step of a project and manage teams to maximize their capabilities. These qualities are apparent even when he is not in the office, like in his busy outdoor life.


About me

Having an appetite for adventure, Marcelo has taken his passion for rock climbing and paragliding to a new level by establishing the first extreme sports service company in Bolivia, AndesXtremo S.R.L. Upon completing his studies in Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing in the Netherlands, he traveled around the United States and Europe and visiting more than 30 cities in 15 countries around the globe which gives him a remarkable ability to work with global clients in any industry.

My goals

Marcelo has been involved in numerous engineering projects in Bolivia that have contributed to local development where he always stands out, completing every project on time and within budget. With those qualities, as VP of Operations, it is easy to understand why Marcelo is a perfect fit with TRUEXTEND’s requirement to become a leading company in the nearshore outsourcing industry.

VP of Business Development

Mark Andrews

Having held Sales, Marketing and Management positions with Silicon Valley Start-ups up to major Software and Telecommunication companies like Motorola and Nokia, Mark has helped develop and ship innovative and world-class software products around the world.


About me

I try to bring passion to everything I do. Not just in my job but in my personal life as well. When I’m not working I’m either playing jazz guitar, golfing or spending time with my family. I love to travel and experience new food and new cultures as well. I’m excited to bring this passion to Truextend.

My goals
