Mynt Consultants – Foundation and experience
Co-founders and owners, Maru Gonzalez and Cynthia Cohen, are no strangers to recruitment process outsourcing. Their experience and relationship goes back more than a decade, prevailing over time and across continents. Maru and Cynthia met in 2006 while working for the first global outsourced recruitment company in Argentina and Uruguay. They quickly moved into leadership roles, becoming team leaders and eventually managers for recruitment implementation. Cynthia left the company and founded Sixto Recruiting, a specialized recruitment firm which in 2009 was acquired by Kenexa, a recruiting agency based in the U.S. Maru was hired by Kenexa a few months later. Together Maru and Cynthia helped build the foundation for the company and turned Kenexa into the top outsource provider in Latin America. They created the RPO Training Academy within Kenexa, which helped in the exponential growth of the organization. In 2011, Cynthia moved into implementations to support the global team in the launch of new RPO projects, and within two years she became RPO Implementation Director for Latin America. Maru joined the team to act as the Global Process & Technology Trainer.
Over the years, Maru and Cynthia have launched more than twenty-five implementations for Fortune 500 companies in multiple industries (including gas & oil, automotive, consumer goods, IT, and retail) and in various global geographies (Americas, Europe, Middle East & Asia). Maru and Cynthia have proven they have the expertise needed to adapt a global process to a local framework no matter what the industry, geography, or technology utilized. They focus on understanding the culture, language and regulations to be able to meet client’s expectations.

For all to function properly and create change, it is essential to work to the highest standards and create a consistent recruitment process. Mynt Consultant’s vision is to be able to connect all these players by understanding who they are, what their strengths and needs are, and which solution can best fulfil their potential.
