The “Delivering the Deal” spotlight series is where Mercer’s leading experts discuss the most pressing issues facing business leaders and deal professionals in M&A today.
During today’s episode, we’ll focus on a topic that many of our clients have been discussing lately. Companies are nearshoring production and supply chains in Mexico for the North American market. How do they get started and why should deal professionals head down this route?
