"I am deeply honored once again to be included in this group of the world's most influential nearshore outsourcing professionals, as it reflects the growing impact and influence of our company and of the region as a center for IT services," said Stefanini. "This ranking validates the quality of the services that Stefanini has been providing to clients in Latin America as well as in the U.S.," said Stefanini.
Nearshore Americas pointed to Marco Stefanini's pioneering spirit as a primary factor in his selection. He founded Stefanini IT Solutions 24 years ago and has grown the company into one of the largest technology providers in Brazil. He was also recognized for fostering a culture of teamwork and a client-focused approach to business. He was cited for staying the course as an independent visionary leader throughout a turbulent period in both his home market and the Americas.
Marco Stefanini and the other honorees were selected based on four main criteria:
- Personal impact on the growth and visibility of outsourcing in the Americas
- Record of achievement within the candidate's own organizations
- Dedication to raising industry standards of excellence
- Engagement in social impact/ CSR and recognition as an industry thought-leader.
A personal willingness to put industry over self in areas like corporate social responsibility, participation in local or region trade promotion and educational development groups and stepping-up into the spotlight as a thought-leader through live events and media engagement.
