Technology company ConvergEx Group has opened an office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to support its Eze OMS order management system.

The new office supports all aspects of Eze’s trading, portfolio management, compliance, operations and data management tools.

The firm has tapped its manager of Asia-Pacific consulting, Jason Pietrafitta, as director of Brazil Consulting. Pietrafitta joined the company in 2004 as a consultant in New York and later helped launch and manage consulting services for Eze’s Asia-Pacific office in Hong Kong.

“The opening of this office represents a new stage for our expanding global footprint,” said A.J. De Rosa, managing director and co-head of global sales for ConvergEx’s Eze Castle Software. “This presence gives us a platform that allows us to provide flexible and robust technology to Latin America’s rapidly growing markets while offering our regional customers the highest level of service and support.”
