ASTA-USA Translation Services, Inc. is proud to announce that Fernando Guarachi has joined our team as our Director of Business Development for Latin America. Guarachi has a broad array of experience within several industries, giving him keen insight into what makes a successful company function at its highest capacity. He also has first-hand knowledge of how vital it is for companies to have access to fast, accurate and error-free document translation.
Getting to Know Fernando
Guarachi was born and raised in Santiago, Chile. At the age of ten, he began playing tennis, not knowing that it would open many doors of opportunity and shape his future career path in unimaginable ways. As he developed in the sport, he earned a scholarship to the University of Alabama where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and International Marketing, another achievement that would serve him well in his career.
Upon graduation, Guarachi went to work for the All American Sports Palmas del Mar Resort in Puerto Rico where he was quickly promoted to Tennis Director. He played a vital part in making the resort the largest and most popular tennis resort in the Caribbean. Through this experience, Guarachi learned a lot about business, which led him to found Pro Team Sports with a leading sportswear marketer. In his role as VP, Guarachi formed a management and consulting company for other top tennis clubs and resorts in the Caribbean. When asked about his business philosophy, Guarachi responded:
“If you’re not improving, you’re losing. If you’re not making things better, you’re falling behind.”
This way of thinking, combined with his ambitious drive and intelligence led Guarachi to form several business connections, make lucrative deals and strides within the sports and business worlds and create one-of-a-kind products and services. His love for tennis remains at the center of his success, with each bold business move connecting back to the sport in some way. His passion and talent for tennis has enabled him to teach thousands of athletes, top junior players, celebrities and more. Guarachi has successfully brokered major business deals for his companies and as a consultant for others.
Many of these deals, however, would have been much easier with the help of document translation services. In his experience, the language barrier in daily business can be very challenging. Sometimes they can be funny, when it’s a simple email between two people, but more often than not, it can be dangerous and harmful to the company’s reputation. Guarachi noticed that “we’ve gotten so lax with communication, it’s become insulting. Cultural differences, distance, technology, complex subject matter and equipment can create barriers between languages, so it’s important that your company can turn to a trustworthy and knowledgeable document translation services company like ASTA-USA and know that each version is an exact match to the other.” That’s why he’s so excited to be part of ASTA-USA and begin to bridge the gaps and bring his successful business dealings and experiences to his clients and the company. Guarachi stated that his favorite part about business is creating relationships.
“Being able to present solutions to clients instead of more problems; being authentic and the person you project yourself to be is the foundation for successful business.”
One of the best things about business for Guarachi is beginning an endeavor for one reason and then it grows and turns into something to help someone else. Looking back on his career so far, Guarachi has noticed that often times he starts a project for one reason and it develops into something successful for an even better reason, and he couldn’t be happier about it.
