Ben Robinson said: “We love partnering with successful local firms who like the football club help to put Burton on the map. It’s great to be working with Ginho this season and we look forward to a long and productive partnership.”

Jorge Vazquez – vice general manager of Ginho Mexico

Ginho has opened a new facility in Mexico and highly qualified Jorge Vazquez has been appointed as vice general manager. Jorge brings over 20 years’ experience that covers operations, customer service, stock control, materials, supply chain, warehousing, logistics, compliance and financial management.

The new Mexican operation comes under the responsibility of Ginho America managing director Chad Hempel. The site is located just north of Mexico City near Queretaro and is very convenient for Mexican automotive customers.

On joining Ginho, Jorge commented: “The Mexican automotive market is growing, so I am really excited to be part of a thriving, specialist business that can deliver global support for international customers out of Mexico and into Central and South America”.

Chad Hempel added: “Jorge is a highly intelligent person with an appetite for new knowledge and experiences. As vice general manager of Ginho Mexico, he will have many opportunities to use those traits and pull from his 20 plus years holding various supply chain management roles. He is a perfect match for this new operation and will offer the overall Ginho group additional resource for global logistics and supply chain processes. Our plan is to build a team in Queretaro as Jorge develops the business.”

Born and brought up in Queretaro, Jorge holds a technical degree in marketing, a bachelor’s degree in international business and an MBA. Outside work, he has a passion for culture, reading, music and sport. He also enjoys spending time with family, friends and his two dogs.

Ginho has signed a contract with business intelligence specialists Marshall Mahoney as the automotive components group embarks on an ambitious programme of international growth.

The first step of the new partnership will be for Ginho to integrate Marshall Mahoney’s Data Hub product which will bring cutting-edge technology to the company’s financial reporting, with streamlined systems that will continue to offer the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for customers.

Data Hub will provide a single version of the truth, at the touch of a button, in the form of a single dashboard across Ginho’s UK, European, US and Mexico operations. It will consolidate and streamline statistics from multiple sources – including Sage – and legacy systems such as CRM (customer relationship management).

As a cloud-based system, it is serverless, and therefore avoids both risks from technological failure and the need for any upfront infrastructure. Data Hub also brings maximum levels of compliance on an international basis and state-of-the-art cybersecurity.


Shaun Gray, managing director of Ginho, is hugely excited about the company’s investment in Data Hub, saying: “Previously, it would typically take around three days of our financial controller’s time to collate monthly accounts. It will now take less than a minute!

“Similarly, if a customer wants a snapshot at any point, they can have it immediately.”

“Working to a just-in-time model means that timeliness has always been crucial. Now that we will have instant access to live data whenever we need it, we will be able to identify trends that much faster and to predict future needs and upcoming challenges.”

Marshall Mahoney director James Marshall added: “We are delighted to have been contracted by Ginho who epitomises the type of business that Data Hub can help to make huge improvements in terms of efficiency – a global organisation with multiple sites and vast numbers of product lines.”
