March 16, 2009 (Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) — FICO (NYSE:FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that Thomas A. Bradley will join the company on April 6 as executive vice president and chief financial officer. Bradley replaces Charles M. Osborne, who is retiring from the company after serving as its CFO since 2004.
Bradley’s distinguished career in the financial services industry most recently involved leading North America Operations for Zurich Financial Services, a firm he joined in 2004 in the role of chief financial officer for North America. Before that, Bradley spent the latter half of six years with St. Paul Companies as executive vice president and chief financial officer. Bradley also served as vice president, finance and corporate controller at USF&G Corporation for five years prior to its acquisition by St. Paul Companies in 1998.
“Tom possesses an impressive breadth of leadership experience, both as a public company CFO and as an operating executive,” said Mark Greene, chief executive officer at FICO. “In addition to core technical skills, he brings with him a successful track record in operational planning and execution, coupled with a proven ability to drive strategic change. These competencies are vital to helping us maintain our focus and restoring the growth of our business. They’ll build nicely upon Chuck Osborne’s many contributions to the company over the past five years.”
“The opportunity to join FICO at this time, with its focused strategy and highly relevant decision management solutions, was too good to pass up,” commented Bradley. “I’m excited to be joining the leadership team and doing my part to help fulfill FICO’s potential.”
