This Linkedin post aligns 💯 with my experience:

I would extract the "cultural differences" from your "values" point, ie not just to assess them as an ambassador, but do they have the ability to assess cultural fit/alignment between the candidates' and the company's country & company cultures (both will be greatly different in most cases).
Same goes with timezone difference - not just for coordinating interviews, but will they be able to convey/assess for candidate's ability to work a lot of early mornings.
(I'd focus on hiring East Coast candidates to lessen the impact here)
Initial hires will be subjected more to the cultural & timezone difference challenges, than later hires when the region has more autonomy.
