Leading outsourced IT provider brings comprehensive technology services to Chicago-based hedge funds and investment firms
BOSTON – July 14, 2008 – Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading provider of technology and IT services to hedge funds and investment firms, today announced the expansion of its Midwest presence with the opening of Chicago operations. Eze Castle is now providing complete IT services and support to Chicago’s burgeoning hedge fund, fund-of-fund and trading communities, and already has three Chicago-based clients.
With over 13 years experience focusing on the technology needs of hedge funds and investment firms, Eze Castle brings Chicago firms access to premier technology professionals and comprehensive technology services. The Chicago expansion builds off the success of Eze Castle’s Minneapolis office, which the company established in 2002 based on client demand.
Eze Castle is dedicated to delivering technology solutions that are aligned with a client’s investment strategy, business processes and growth objectives to help ensure technology delivers a competitive advantage while reducing operational risk. Chicago firms now can capitalize on Eze Castle’s comprehensive services portfolio that includes strategic IT consulting, network management, disaster recovery and business continuity planning, voice solutions and ongoing outsourced IT support.
“Considering Chicago’s continuous growth and last year’s outpacing of global performance, opening a Chicago office was unquestionably the next logical step in our corporate growth,” said John Cahaly, CEO of Eze Castle Integration. “We are committed to providing premier technology services and solutions and view Chicago as an untapped market with great demand for superior IT services delivered by a provider that understands the unique needs and requirements of financial firms.”
To drive sales in Chicago, Eze Castle has hired industry veteran Amy Leffingwell as the newest member of its business development team. Leffingwell brings 15 years of experience in the financial services industry and is actively involved in Midwest Committee of Hearts for Hedge Funds Care.
