AbleNet Chief Executive Officer Participates in the South American Trade Forum 2012
AbleNet’s commitment to persons with disabilities has a worldwide reach. The South American Trade Forum panel discussed how businesses in the United States can better reach this population with manufactured goods and professional services.
“AbleNet has many valuable distributor partners across the South American region,” commented Jennifer Thalhuber, CEO of AbleNet. “We are committed to improving the lives of people with disabilities and want to do what we can to break down barriers to helping individuals get access to our many assistive technology solutions. With over 370 million people in South America, we know there are many people with disabilities that can benefit from our technology. We are committed to working with these global leaders to help encourage access to these markets and ultimately to our customers – individuals with disabilities.”
AbleNet currently services the South American market with distributors in numerous countries. By continuing to create business relationships between these governments, local representation through distributors, and a worldwide manufacturing and product development company like AbleNet, the three entities working together can create opportunities for individuals with disabilities throughout the region. This trade forum provided continued opportunities for improving business between the United States and South America.
The forum’s initiative is designed to strengthen the cultural, political, and economic ties between South American and the United States.
