Powell’s recognition as the Nearshore Entrepreneur of the Year reflects his exemplary leadership, entrepreneurial vision, and significant contributions to the Nearshore services industry. This accolade is a testament to Powell’s unique approach of blending U.S. expertise with Latin America’s scalability and affordability, creating an organic expansion that has strengthened HatchWorks’ market presence and fostered significant company growth. His strategic acumen and innovative mindset have created remarkable growth at HatchWorks, earning it a spot on Inc. Magazine’s list of the 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in 2021.
Under Powell’s leadership, HatchWorks has established a high-performance culture based on a clear vision and core values, earning the company recognition as a best place to work three times. His commitment to transparency and inclusivity is evident in the HatchHuddle, a monthly all-hands meeting that he initiated to foster alignment and connection across the company. In 2022, Powell instituted a profit-sharing program, fostering a deeper connection between the team and the company’s financial success.
Beyond the corporate realm, Powell’s commitment to community is evident through his founding of the HatchFutures foundation. The foundation provides hands-on technology training, mentoring, career development, and financial support for educational opportunities to at-risk youth in both the United States and Latin America. Powell’s belief in giving back extends to partnering with organizations such as Girls Who Code, Year Up, and Bright Futures, further enhancing the impact of the HatchFutures program.
“The honor of receiving the Nearshore Entrepreneur of the Year award is a testament to the entire HatchWorks team.
