Gustavo began working with Oracle in the late 1990’s as a Business Systems Analyst for Nike Argentina when he helped the company roll out Oracle Financials 10.7. He worked as a Senior Systems Engineer for Nike USA’s Global IT/IS group, where he supported the BI tools that Nike’s America’s Sales division depended upon. During this time, Gustavo also took on lead roles in Oracle implementations in Brazil and South Africa.
In 2003, Gustavo returned to Argentina, working as a Sr. Consultant for Oracle Argentina and delivering order-to-cash solutions to a diverse range of clients encompassing everything from oil and gas companies to cable TV providers. He later worked as Danone Argentina’s ERP Project Manager where he managed a number of Oracle ERP initiatives covering the company’s Shared Service Center operations in both Argentina and Uruguay.
Since 2006, Gustavo has been with IT Convergence, first serving as Global IT Director. In that capacity he serviced the company’s global shared services center located in Buenos Argentina. IT Convergence has implemented Oracle HRMS, Oracle Telesales, Oracle Service, Noetix, and OBIEE globally.

In 2012, Gustavo was named as CTO, and started to lead two major initiatives at IT Convergence. As a program manager of the Oracle R12.2 beta program, IT Convergence was the first company worldwide joining the efforts with Oracle Development to test an upgrade of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.
