Multilingual Connections, an Evanston-based firm that provides professional translation, transcription and interpretation services in over 75 languages for corporate, legal, healthcare, government and academic clients, has added three employees to its team in response to a strong increase in sales.
Mark Bishop joined the company as chief operating officer to oversee technology, digital marketing/communications and general operations. He brings 20 years of organizational and communications management to his role.
Seyma Albarino, a speaker of French, Russian and Serbian, joined as vendor manager to oversee new and existing relationships with vendors for the 75 languages that Multilingual Connections provides services.
AJ Wilton brings her love of languages — Latin, French, Arabic, and Russian — and multi-faceted career at Groupon, including editorial and branding, to her role as project manager.
“After a strong first quarter with a 30 percent increase in sales, it became apparent that it was time for additional staff,” Multilingual Connections CEO Jill Kushner Bishop says. “Our increased team will help ensure our ability to provide exceptional service to our growing list of clients throughout North America.”
