Capita Translation and Interpreting announces it has appointed Antonio Tejada as General Manager. Antonio has held the position of Language Solutions Director for the company for the last year, helping to transform its technology and capabilities.
Kevin Gordon, the current Managing Director of the business, is taking over a new role in Capita’s IT Enterprise Services division. He will continue on as a director of Capita Translation and interpreting, with Antonio managing the day-to-day operations of the company.
Antonio began his career as a translator 25 years ago and has since held management roles in operations, technology and sales, within both the language and telecoms industries. He regularly presents at translation and localisation events around the world, such as LocWorld, TAUS and the ATC, and has previously set up his own translation business and worked at companies including SDL International and ITP.
Kevin Gordon, Managing Director of Capita TI, said: “Antonio was an obvious choice for this position. He’s hugely experienced in the industry, and his knowledge is first-rate. It’s a key priority for us to focus on new developments in the language industry, and Antonio does exactly that; identifying new and innovative technologies and processes that can help everyone involved in the translation lifecycle deliver excellent services and become more efficient.”
Antonio said: “I have always been driven by my joint passion for languages and technology, and to help others succeed. When I joined Capita over three years ago, my objective was to re-engage with an industry I love – and I am excited for the opportunity that Capita has given me to lead a fantastic team and to work closely with our customers.”
