SAO PAULO, Brazil, February 8 /PRNewswire/ --

- Considered the world's third largest IT market, the country is the company's focus in 2008

The English office of Stefanini IT Solutions, one of Brazil's major IT consulting companies, has completed its second year, and operations are going full force. The unit celebrates its fast growth. Operations volume has doubled each year.

The revenue increase results from servicing big, important local and global companies. Marco Stefanini, Stefanini's president, explains that many of the locally serviced customers are global companies. "Besides British enterprises, we also serve many companies that know Stefanini in Brazil and extend their services to other locations. That is the reason it is so important to have a foot in this strategic market", he adds.

Considered Europe's main IT center, the U.K. is the focus of Stefanini's efforts for 2008. "Our main challenge is to consolidate our operations in the U.K. with companies in the financial segment -- an industry in which we have developed our expertise in our 20-year operation in the market," explains Stefanini. The executive does not discard the possibility of growing in the U.K. through acquisitions, either. "We have an eye on British companies. Our intention is to acquire IT services companies."

Presently, around 20% of the company's operating volume is from foreign activities. Stefanini's plan is to increase this percentage to 50% by 2011.
