UK-based fintech Finastra announced on Wednesday it has appointed Gary Bischoping as its new CFO. According to Finastra, Bischoping brings a wealth of technology experience to the team, with recently holding the role as CFO of Varian, a mid-cap medical technology U.S. multinational. Bischoping will notably replace Mark Miller, who is stepping down from his role for personal reasons.
Prior to Varian, Bischoping spent more than seventeen years at Dell, where he held senior finance roles and was integral in developing, as well as implementing, an internal machine-learning-based finance tool and other key finance development programs. Speaking about Bischoping’s appointment, Simon Paris, CEO at Finastra, stated:
“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.”
Bischoping then added:
“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.”
