On par with its rapid growth, Cynergy Data has expanded its financial team. Gustavo Ceballos has been promoted from Chief Financial Officer to Executive Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions/Strategic Planning. Mike Kennedy joined the company's New York office in early June as the company's new CFO.
