Intel Costa Rica names Ileana Rojas as new site GM

October 29, 2019

Intel Costa Rica has 100% Costa Rican leadership for the first time.

The multinational company announced the news Monday in a press release, where it revealed that Ileana Rojas has been named Intel’s new site general manager.

Rojas, a graduate of the International University of the Americas in San José, has more than 20 years of experience with Intel, according to her LinkedIn page.

Intel has operated in Costa Rica since 1997, when it helped to establish the country as a technology hub.

In 2000, microchips represented 36 percent of the country’s total exports, and by the time Intel closed its chip assembly plant here in 2014, laying off 1,500 workers, its production represented more than a quarter of Costa Rica’s exports

Since then, the company has expanded its Costa Rica-based research and development center, where employees “design, prototype, test, and validate integrated circuit and software solutions.”

Intel Costa Rica also operates a services center that provides “finance, human resources, procurement, and sales and marketing support” for the entire corporation.

Today, the company employs more than 2,000 people in Costa Rica.

Intel Costa Rica’s headquarters are located in Belén, Heredia, northwest of the capital.
