QuoVadis Bermudian Employee Featured in Swiss IT Employment Campaign
17 Oct 2013

Young Bermudian technology specialist Edwin Bento has been featured in a Swiss media campaign to attract technology employers to the Canton of St Gallen.

Mr. Bento is currently working in a two year transfer assignment with the Swiss subsidiary of Bermuda-based QuoVadis, where he provides advanced technical support for international customers of QuoVadis’ managed digital certificate services.

QuoVadis’ Swiss operations are based in the town of St Gallen, which is home to Switzerland’s top business school and hosts a vibrant technology sector. In fact, over 10 percent of all Swiss IT jobs are located in the Canton, second only to Zurich itself. QuoVadis has joined 25 other IT companies to support a campaign called “IT Rockt!” which aims to emphasize the benefits of the St Gallen region to both IT workers and their employers.

The “IT Rockt!” campaign includes “rock ‘n roll” imagery of IT workers enjoying life in St Gallen. Mr. Bento is pictured in the town’s student quarter, known as the “Bermudadreieck” or Bermuda Triangle for nightlife.

“Working in Switzerland for QuoVadis has been a fantastic opportunity” said Mr. Bento. “I’ve worked on advanced digital certificate rollouts for some of QuoVadis’ largest clients, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the homelands and culture of our European customers and colleagues. Plus, it’s been fun being the actual Bermudian in the Bermudadreieck!”

Founded in Bermuda in 1999, QuoVadis (www.quovadisglobal.com) expanded into Europe in 2005 and now has 50 staff located in Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. QuoVadis provides digital certificate solutions which are used to authenticate people and devices on the internet, to encrypt online communications, and to create legally binding digital signatures that protect the data integrity of online documents (such as PDFs) and transactions. In addition, QuoVadis is an accredited issuer under national eID programmes including PKIoverheid in Holland and SuisseID in Switzerland.
