Facing new challenges and finding opportunities

Samira Saba

This year I celebrated my first decade in Smartmatic. Ten years filled with great memories, hard work and lessons learnt.

In 2004, when I joined the company, we were just a small team of 50 people, most in our twenties and early thirties, with an immense desire to do something important. Ten years later, and having helped Smartmatic become a world reference in election administration, we're ready to take on new challenges.

Last week we formally announced the creation of SGO. For me it is sort of a hinge moment for our company. For years we've been building capacity and gaining experience. We've invested heavily in our R&D labs to create more technology with the real power to improve lives around the globe. Now, it's time to take another step forward, and begin a new chapter in our success story.

I am sure that the different ventures of our SGO will open the door to new challenges. And I am sure the vast majority of my colleagues are willing to harness our talent and the experience gathered to make the best out of the opportunities ahead of us.

We have a unique chance to further expand the reach of our solutions and make people's lives better in areas such as citizen participation, Identity, pollution control, among many others. Let's begin this new adventure now, with both aplomb and enthusiasm!
