Wexford Capital Moves to ECI's Private Cloud Platform to Power Operations, Increase IT Agility
Wexford Capital gravitated away from its on-premise IT infrastructure and towards the ECI's Private Cloud for its multifaceted suite of services and measurable benefits, such as, cost optimization and increased business agility.
Wexford Capital is a multi-billion dollar SEC registered investment adviser (RIA). The firm, which was formed in 1994, manages a series of hedge funds and private equity funds from its Greenwich, CT and West Palm Beach, FL offices. Absorbing all of Wexford’s IT needs, ECI's Private Cloud empowers the firm’s employees to focus on more tactical, revenue-generating work and create business value.
Dante Domenichelli, Chief Operating Officer at Wexford Capital, said, “ECI delivers the comprehensive services and expert, reliable support we had been searching for in an IT provider. Transitioning to the ECI's Private Cloud has enabled seamless business expansion and improved our operational efficiencies while providing assurances of performance and security.”
