CMI: An admirable company

According to an investigation carried out by the publication Strategy & Business, Corporación Multi Inversiones, CMI is among the most estimated businesses of 2021.

In 2021, the publication Strategy & Business published an article about the three things that made Central American companies the best known in the business world:

  1. How well is your internal management done?
  2. The standard of the goods and services they create, promote and offer.
  3. Your ability to obtain, retain and grow talent.

The research was created by E&N and Skaleno Advisory, an international consulting organization. Based on a public survey conducted between September 21 and October 4 on the magazine’s social media platforms and under the direct supervision of the magazine’s team of co-managers throughout the region.

880 people participated in the survey, reflecting the views of regional business decision makers. Owners, CEOs, senior managers or managers make up 70% of them.

The most appreciated companies are:

  • Grupo Poma
  • Grupo Progreso
  • CMI: Corporación Multi Inversiones
  • CBC
  • Lacthosa
  • Hugo
  • Almacenes Siman
  • Dos pinos
  • Avianca 
  • Grupo Pellas
  • Grupo Agrisal
  • Grupo Monge

The quality of the organizational management of these organizations, which is related to the ways in which the company manages its organization, how they communicate and the culture they have, is one of the most important conclusions.

The managing partner of Skaleno Advisory stated: “To live, I need products and services, but to develop a significant difference with the other businesses, I need to have a high quality in the management of the organization.”
