MINNEAPOLIS – July 28, 2010 – FICO (NYSE: FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced the appointment of Jordan W. Graham as Executive Vice President for Scores and President of FICO Consumer Services. Graham will report to CEO Mark Greene and direct the growth of the company’s FICO® scores and myFICO® businesses.
Graham comes to FICO with an extensive background in building technology-based businesses in the banking, insurance and healthcare industries. Graham was previously with Citigroup where, for the past three years, he was the Managing Director and Head of North America Business Development for the Global Transaction Services division. In this position, Graham was responsible for creating new revenue streams through indirect channels, acquisitions, and strategic partnerships.
Graham brings a wealth of web-based expertise to FICO from both his work at Cisco and Match.com. At Cisco, he was Managing Director and Global Head of the Financial Services Strategy Consulting Practice in the Internet Business Solutions Group. During his tenure as President and CEO of Match.com, he was instrumental in establishing and growing one of the premier online consumer brands. Graham has also served as President and CEO of Tristar Market Data, and held senior market-facing global roles at Sun Microsystems. Currently he serves on the Board of Directors of RLI Corp, a NYSE-listed property and casualty insurer.
“Jordan is a seasoned executive with strong experience serving both lenders and consumers,” said Mark Greene, FICO CEO. “We expect him to make meaningful contributions to our business as a member of the FICO executive team and create value not only for credit grantors but for the American public, who are increasingly interested in understanding how their FICO Scores can help them improve their financial future.”
“With its FICO Scores acting as the standard measure of US consumer credit risk, FICO has a unique position at the intersection of Main Street and Wall Street,” said Jordan Graham. “What excites me most about this role is the opportunity for credit analytics and credit understanding to enable economic growth. The innovation coming out of the Scores business right now can have a transformative effect, much as the FICO Score has had over the past 20 years.”
