c +i CONSTRUCTION & INFRASTRUCTURE Well Regarded >GRUPO MARHNOS JORGE CERRILLA SAYS GRUPO MARHNOS’ ETHICS AND COMMITMENT TO ITS PEOPLE HAVE HELPED IT EARN A SOLID REPUTATION. BY A L A N D O R I C H After more than five decades, Grupo Marhnos stands as a rarity in its home country, Business Development Director Jorge Cerrilla says. “It is pretty difficult to find a general contractor that has been in [business in] Mexico for over 50 years,” he explains. The Mexico City-based Marhnos’ roots go back to 1954, when it began building commercial and hospitality projects. Cerrilla notes that the company completed many projects on Paseo de La Reforma, a prominent boulevard in its home city. The company’s projects included the U.S. Embassy, the Fiesta Americana Hotel and Inmecafe Building. Marhnos later built hotels in Acapulco and eventually grew to take on industrial, infrastructure and retail projects. Today, the company not only operates in the role of general contractor, but also as a developer, operator and concessionaire. -----------------------------------------------[ P R O F I L E ] Grupo Marhnos 2009 sales: Approximately $165 million Headquarters: Mexico City Services: Construction, design, engineering and real estate development Employees: 458 -------------------------------------------------------------// Grupo Marhnos has built more than 120 hospitality facilities, more than 85 residential projects and more than 15 industrial projects. 102 MANAGEMENTTODAY-MAGAZINE.COM WINTER 2011 http://www.MANAGEMENTTODAY-MAGAZINE.COM
