Ci&T's Leonardo Mattiazzi Recognized as One of Philadelphia Business Journal's "40 Under 40"(May 14, 2012)
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/14/12 -- Ci&T, a Nearshore provider of value-driven web and mobile application services and software product engineering, announced today that Leonardo Mattiazzi, vice president of international business, was selected as one of Philadelphia Business Journal's "40 Under 40." Mattiazzi is honored for his achievement in establishing a strong, profitable U.S. presence for Brazil-based Ci&T -- and for acting as trailblazer for other Brazilian companies looking to build successful U.S. operations.
Mattiazzi was recognized by the Philadelphia Business Journal for his achievements in establishing Ci&T as a global software development leader in North America. Having joined the company in 1997, Mattiazzi quickly rose through the ranks to hold executive sales, marketing and business development positions. In 2006, Mattiazzi was tasked with single-handedly establishing the company's U.S. operations. Meeting with state representatives and researching metropolitan areas across the country, Mattiazzi identified Philadelphia as the city that would best suit Ci&T's needs. Since that time, he has effectively grown Ci&T's U.S. staff to more than 25 local employees and increased revenue from $1 million to over $20 million in just five years.
"As the home base for Ci&T's U.S. operations, Philadelphia is a city close to my heart -- and being chosen as a '40 Under 40' award recipient is a great honor," said Mattiazzi. "As Ci&T continues to expand its North American presence, we look forward to strengthening our foothold in the region, providing jobs and business opportunities, promoting innovation and delivering high-quality results for our clients."
Mattiazzi is also heavily involved with local universities to hire interns from the local community to work in Ci&T's U.S. and Brazilian offices. He is also working closely with Temple University on the Urban Apps & Maps Studio, developing software applications to solve challenges in the Philadelphia region and create technology-based jobs.
The Philadelphia Business Journal's "40 Under 40" program recognizes 40 individuals, under the age of 40, who are proven performers and dynamic leaders in their industries. The recipients have shaped the greater Philadelphia community in ways that have made it a better place to do business and live. Winners were profiled in the Friday, May 11, issue of Philadelphia Business Journal and will be honored during an awards banquet on Tuesday, May 22.
