Marco Stefanini, President and Founder of Top Brazilian Outsourcer, to Participate in Panel on U.S./Brazil IT-BPO Trends, Opportunities, Challenges

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - November 5, 2009) - Stefanini IT Solutions (www.stefanini.com), a global provider of IT consulting, systems integration, and outsourcing services, announced their participation in the U.S./Brazil IT-BPO Summit on November 10, 2009 in New York City. The event will bring together business leaders, decision makers and investors to focus on trends and opportunities between the U.S. and Brazil in the IT-BPO sector. Marco Stefanini, President and CEO of Stefanini, will participate in a panel titled, "U.S./Brazil IT-BPO Trends, Opportunities and Challenges."

The event is sponsored by the Brazilian Association of Information Technology and Communication Companies (BRASSCOM) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). At the event, the "Brazil IT-BPO Book" developed by BRASSCOM and Apex-Brasil will be officially launched. The "Brazil IT-BPO Book" is the most comprehensive study to date on Brazil's information and communication technology (ICT) sector.

"As a longtime leader in the Brazilian IT community, Stefanini is pleased to join in this effort to help generate and raise global awareness of Brazil as a premier technology provider in the global IT services market," said Antonio Moreira, Stefanini's CEO of North America. "This much-anticipated U.S./Brazil IT-BPO Summit and the release of the "Brazil IT-BPO Book" reinforce Brazil's growing influence in the global IT market."

After decades of development, Brazil's IT-BPO market is among the strongest and most advanced in the world, and along with communications, accounts for approximately 7 percent of Brazil's GDP. Large national Brazilian companies operate in the country, as well as the most multinational companies of various origins.

In fact, the strength and marketability of the Brazilian IT services and business process outsourcing (BPO) industry is reflected in growth forecasts which have remained high despite the global economic crisis. Private industry and the Brazilian government are working together to position the country as an increasingly relevant and strategic global player in IT-BPO.

Stefanini is the largest Brazilian native IT services company. The company was incorporated in the United States in 2001, and in 2008 its U.S. operations increased by 62 percent from the previous year. The company currently has North American offices in Fort Lauderdale, New York City, Atlanta, Chicago and Montreal.
