Financial technology firm Finastra has appointed Gary E. Bischoping Jr. as its new chief financial officer.
Bischoping Jr. will bring a “wealth of technology experience” to the London-based firm, having recently acted as CFO at medical technology group Varian.
During his time there, he drove several transformation programmes and “revamped” the capital allocation process, accelerating growth and investments for the group.
Prior to that, he spent over 17 years at Dell where he progressed to one of the “most senior” finance roles. He helped to develop and implement an internal machine-learning based finance tool, and lead several key finance development programmes.
He will succeed the role from Mark Miller, who made a “significant impact” during his time there, building a “best in class” finance function for the firm.
Bischoping Jr. said: “I’m really pleased to join Finastra and am looking forward to building on the progress Mark has made in shaping the finance team.
“This is a great opportunity to be part of a leadership team that is focused on powering innovation in financial services, giving people solutions and services that fit around their everyday needs and lives.”
Simon Paris, CEO at Finastra, said: “It’s great to have Gary on board to help us continue shaping our finance team, in line with our growth plans.
“He brings with him a proven track record in the technology industry, which will be invaluable as we continue to build significant momentum with our open innovation platform, FusionFabric.cloud. We are delighted to welcome him to the Finastra Executive Leadership Team.”
