Southfield, MI, March 2016 – Stefanini – one of the most important global providers of IT outsourcing, applications management, consulting, and strategic staffing – announced that it is a platinum sponsor of the second annual FUEL: Detroit business event as a part of its strategy to grow in the U.S. and reinforce its business leadership. Held at the MotorCity Casino Hotel on April 21st, FUEL: Detroit 2016 is a great opportunity for Stefanini to showcase the core values it shares with the event: a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a great passion for everything they do.

With a focus on agility, flexibility, quality, and innovation, Stefanini embodies many of the same core values that the FUEL Leadership organization represents. “The concept of FUEL: Detroit is a great match for our company and we look forward to developing a great partnership that inspires and energizes leaders to be successful,” said Antonio Moreira, CEO of Stefanini NA and APAC. FUEL: Detroit 2016 will bring together some of the world’s foremost business leaders for an energizing, transformative conference that aims to elevate the professional performance for persons at all stages of their career.

“Stefanini is a company that is focused on innovation and rapid expansion in the U.S. which aligns perfectly with FUEL’s mission, said Dave Zilko, CEO of Fuel Leadership. “We are thrilled that Stefanini has embraced FUEL’s unique local and national events, and we are equally excited to have them join us as we begin to produce and launch Daily Fuel, original digital content focused exclusively on business performance.”

Throughout the event, iconic business moguls, entrepreneurs, and personalities – such as Martha Stewart, Michael Strahan, Captain Mark Kelly, Jacques Panis, and Marcus Buckingham – will deliver inspirational tips, strategies, attitudes, and learnings based on business leadership. “Transformation is a value that Stefanini has in its DNA,” said Mr. Moreira. “Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, we supply the tools to help our clients with business transformation for competitive advantage as well as develop our employees into better professionals and leaders.”

Since Stefanini’s inception in 1987, the company’s founder and global CEO, Marco Stefanini, has successfully led the company through several economic crises. Competing with multinational giants – and tough competition in the Brazilian market – he found ways for Stefanini to flourish through niche markets and expand operations in Brazil and abroad. Under Mr. Stefanini’s leadership, Stefanini has become a multinational company and the first native Brazilian company to have offices abroad. Today, Stefanini is present in 39 countries across five continents, employing more than 20,000 people.

With North American headquarters in Southfield, MI, Stefanini maintains a large presence in the Detroit area and employs over 600 associates in the local area. For well over a decade, Stefanini has actively engaged with the Metro Detroit area and built strong relationships with the surrounding community.

The company has sustained long-term relationships with local clients by supporting their core IT operation with transformative services – such as mobility, cloud, and analytics/business intelligence – that help them adapt to future market trends.

Aligned with the latest trends, Stefanini has made strategic investments in innovation over the past year as a part of its plan to expand its service offering portfolio across various verticals. It is this forward-thinking mentality that has paved the way for the company’s competitive edge, global scope, and success in dozens of markets around the world.
