The LatinoPro Team

chief executive officer & Founder

Benjamin Morales

Benjamin founded LatinoPro in 2016. The vision was always two things; helping Latinos and companies thrive. LatinoPro is a bilingual staffing and recruitment company that provides a complete outsource of company recruitment, labor and talent management operations. Adding to LatinoPro's value, Benjamin works with clients who have specific labor requirements outlined within their procured government contracts.

Strategically, Benjamin focuses on finding clients hidden labor pools and pockets that most staffing firms are not able to tap into. This has made LatinoPro reliable and different than the competition. Amongst the fast growth LatinoPro has had, Benjamin has had the pleasure of employing hundreds of employees for clients that have different needs and skill requirements within the economy.

Philanthropically Benjamin spends his time helping entrepreneurs in developing sustainable business models, and coaches Wisconsin youth soccer.

Among Mark's previous companies is Nordic Consulting, the industry leader in EHR consulting services to organizations using Epic.

Prior to Nordic, Mark started and grew Goliath Networks to be #97 on the Inc. 500 fastest-growing companies list. He sold that company in 2002.
