DST International (DSTi), a leading provider of business software and work management solutions to the investment management industry, has today announced the opening of a new office in Shanghai.
In a ceremony presided over by DSTi CEO Tom Abraham, the new office, located on the 29th floor of Shanghai's prestigious Information Tower in the heart of Pudong's financial district, officially opened with a small ceremony.
Speaking about the opening, Mr. Abraham said, "Having worked in Asia for many years, this is my first official Chinese ceremonial duty. Realizing that this is not a time for celebrations in China, DSTi's local and international staff held a collection for victims of the Sichuan Earthquake. Other DSTi offices in Thailand, Hong Kong, Beijing and elsewhere in Asia have also held collections. I have been amazed by the compassion and generosity I have seen exhibited here in the aftermath of the earthquake. I feel proud of DSTi's Chinese staff, our company and China's response to this tragedy."
Asia CEO Ms. Rhonda Lepsch said, "We have been delighted with the growth that we have experienced in China over the past five years. DSTi's rapidly expanding client base has required that we recruit additional staff in order to continue to service our local clients in a highly responsive and professional manner. In addition, DSTi is expanding its solutions and services offerings for the China market and the new office will provide us with the additional capacity required to further increase our local Sales, Consulting and Support teams."
Speaking at the opening ceremony, DSTi China General Manager Mr. Jeremy Huo said, "The opening of our new office in Shanghai and the presence today of our two CEOs shows DST International's commitment to China. Over the last five years DSTi China has grown continuously. Our local consultants understand the Chinese market while our solutions have been tested around the world. Our experience in the financial services industry makes us a market leader, and our knowledge of the domestic market makes us an integral part of the Chinese Financial sector."
