Sao Paulo, Brazil (PRWEB) September 11, 2009
Global Intelligence Alliance (GIA, http://www.globalintelligence.com), a global strategic market intelligence and advisory group, continues its global expansion and officially launches its first Latin America office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Mr. Thomas Rideg will be appointed as Regional Director, GIA Latin America. Thomas has fifteen years of experience in market intelligence and has previously been working as the GIA representative in the region through InfoAmericas. Together with a network of consultants and partners that cover twelve countries, he will help lead GIA Latin America sales and marketing as well as client management.
"The team at GIA Latin America brings clients keen cultural knowledge, industry expertise and years of on-the-ground experience - attributes which international clients value highly. Global companies often face many challenges when they seek strategic market intelligence and insights into Latin American markets, including a lack of reliable secondary information and challenges in conducting field research, and highly appreciate an experienced hand," said Tom Rideg. "Both global and Latin America-based companies can now rely on a local GIA office for their customized market intelligence needs."
Markko Vaarnas, GIA's Chief Executive Officer commented, "GIA has a long history with Latin America, having supported noted local organizations such as Embratur (Brazilian Tourism Board), partner associations of Brazil´s Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (APEX), Mangels, etc., as well as several international companies over the years. With our own base in Brazil, we are well placed to serve our international clients' needs in the region, especially as Latin America becomes increasingly important to the global economy."
