This partnership between ERM and EMC provides this opportunity” and Carlos Pereyra, ERM’s Latin America & Caribbean CEO and President of ERM Guyana, Inc. said, “ERM and EMC have successfully partnered for many years and we now want to build on that success together for the benefit of our clients and the local economies such a partnership will help develop.”
