The deal brings together two outfits which share a relentless pursuit of results and a commitment to working in the fastest and most efficient way in their own respective sectors, in order to facilitate each other’s digital evolution.

Proudly founded and based in Mexico and with offices in Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic as well as in Spain, KIO aims to build an effective digital transformation strategy through innovative technological solutions and a solid infrastructure to implement its client’s plans for development and growth.

As part of the new relationship, Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN drivers, Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu, have been nominated Chief Speed Officer and Chief Acceleration Officer of KIO respectively, to help the company give greater agility to their infrastructure solutions and intelligent business services. KIO’s branding will be visible on the upper sidepods of the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 cars at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez during the Mexican Grand Prix race weekend.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal of Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN: “Delivering outstanding results in a fast and efficient way is the key to all our operations, and for these reasons we identify with KIO’s own business values. Their passion and dedication to what they do is very similar to our effort to always deliver the very best of our performances, both on and off track. I am proud to give our new partners my warmest welcome to the team ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix, and glad to be bringing them on track with us during their home race.”
