Award-winning British data services provider, Ve Interactive is delighted to announce the opening of its fifth international office. This one is in the heart of Tropicana in Sao Paulo, the commercial capital of Brazil and Latin America's largest city.
As the global leader in online efficiency, abandoned cart recovery and remarketing, Ve Interactive is delighted to be able to serve Brazil's online channel, where ecommerce is fast outpacing growth in traditional retail. Continuing on its pioneering and entrepreneurial course, Ve Interactive is the first company to introduce such online efficiency and digital marketing solutions to Latin America.
Ve Interactive is also delighted to appoint Juliana Custodio as Managing Director of the Brazilian operation, based on Avenida Paulista in the heart of Sao Paulo. Juliana graduates to this role after spending over a year working out of the Ve Interactive global HQ in London, UK. Her ecommerce and remarketing expertise and experience will be highly beneficial to online merchants in the region.
"We are hugely excited by the tremendous opportunity of the Brazilian ecommerce market," commented David Brown, co-Founder CEO of Ve Interactive UK. "Brazil boasts the the world's seventh largest economy and Latin America's largest online population and ecommerce market. Clearly the opportunity for new technology in a high growth market such as this is immense but moreover, Ve Interactive's philosophy is that the Internet is truly global and so this office, in our fourth continent underlines our ambitions to provide truly global insight and service."
The Brazilian online revolution is being fuelled and fast-tracked by the exponential growth of online operations of large retailers, the growth of buying sites like Groupon, investment in online advertising, the popularity of smartphones and 3G, and the integration of social networks and ecommerce.
"The size of the ecommerce market here is in the same range as highly developed online retail markets like South Korea and it is nearly twice the size of markets like Spain and Italy," explained Juliana Custodio.
"Online retail revenues in Brazil (currently US Dollars ($)10 bn) are set to double over the next five years, and what with the World Cup and Olympics being hosted here too, these are exciting times for the country's economy. Indeed I believe that the forecasted growth will ultimately prove grossly understated. Ve Interactive's expansion into Latin America also brings exciting career opportunities for local talent too as we commence supporting Brazil's online businesses."
Ve Interactive's international charity partner, Concern Universal operates a program in NE Brazil and so Ve Interactive is delighted to now be able to support this fantastic organisation at a local level too. "We take our social responsibility as seriously as our commercial responsibility and Concern Universal is doing important and valuable development work around the world," said Kathy Heslop, Director of Global Communications for Ve Interactive.
The Sao Paulo office is now open for business (details below) and Brazilian clients are set to launch Ve Interactive's software solutions in the next few days already, a demand that accelerated the company's arrival here.
