  • Finnova appoints Daniel Bernasconi as Chief Technology Officer and strengthens the Executive Board with Olaf Romer, former Head of Corporate IT at the Baloise Group
    2020-10-14 14:00 - (Finnova AG)

    Lenzburg, 14 October 2020 – The new strategic division 'Technology' has been created as part of the 'transform25' growth strategy. Daniel Bernasconi will be responsible for this division as Chief Technology Officer from 1 November 2020. On the same date, Olaf Romer will take over the position of Chief Services Officer from Daniel Bernasconi. Finnova has gained a very experienced manager in Olaf Romer. He will use his experience to further develop the important Services division.

    Over the last five years, Daniel Bernasconi has successfully developed and expanded Finnova's Services division, which includes Application Management in Seewen and the newly established solutions business such as the Finnova Open Platform, SaaS, consulting and integration. As a result of its transformation into a solution provider with the consistent opening up of the Finnova Banking Software via the Open Platform and increased cooperation with numerous fintechs, topics such as further development of the Open Platform, modernisation of the Finnova Core and Architecture Consulting are very significant to Finnova and its overall architecture. That is why Daniel Bernasconi will be taking responsibility for this division as CTO with a dedicated team, also making his expertise available to customers and partners externally. "It was already very important to me to view the Finnova Banking Software as an open component in our customers' ever faster-moving world of solutions, not as a self-contained product. I am looking forward to continuing in this direction in my new role," said Bernasconi.

    Finnova's Executive Board has appointed Olaf Romer as the new Chief Services Officer. With over 20 years' experience in various management positions at the Baloise Group, he brings solid knowledge of IT and services with him. Hendrik Lang, CEO of Finnova said, "We are delighted to have gained a proven, customer-oriented expert and team player with Olaf, who knows the IT business from the ground up. With his know-how and his network in the world of insurance, Olaf's responsibilities will include developing business with bank-related institutions such as pension companies, insurers and asset managers."

    Daniel Bernasconi and Olaf Romer will both report to CEO Hendrik Lang.

  • Stabübergabe im Finnova Application Management in Seewen
    2020-01-17 07:00 - (Finnova AG)

    Lenzburg, 17.01.2020 – Nach erfolgreichen 15 Jahren hat Oswald Föhn die Führung des Application Managements der Finnova AG in Seewen/SZ per 1. Januar 2020 an Christian Reinhard übergeben.

    Oswald Föhn wird Finnova Mitte 2020 in Richtung Ruhestand verlassen. Dank seiner kompetenten, kundenorientierten und von Vertrauen geprägten Führungsarbeit hat sich die Abteilung Application Management zum strategischen Leistungszentrum entwickelt. Knapp 50 Mitarbeitende betreiben die Software für mehrere Kundenbanken auf unterschiedlichen Plattformen. Die Bedeutung des Applikations- und Plattformbetriebs wird in Zukunft weiter steigen, denn in einer zunehmend fraktalen Software-Landschaft stellt das Wissen um die Integration und den Betrieb von Bankensoftware mit vielfältigen Drittprodukten und -lösungen einen echten unternehmerischen Mehrwert dar. Auch zwei der drei Teams der 2018 gegründeten Abteilung Solutions arbeiten unter der Leitung von Arthur Camenzind am Standort Seewen. Oswald Föhn hat wesentlich zur Gründung dieser Abteilung beigetragen, der auch ein Team in Lenzburg angehört.

    Christian Reinhard wechselte im Februar 2019 von der Bank Julius Bär & Co. AG zu Finnova, wo er die Strategie Business Solutions as a Service (Finnova BSS) entwickelte. Erste Berührungspunkte mit Finnova hatte er bereits während seiner Tätigkeit für die Obwaldner Kantonalbank, einen Finnova-Kunden. Mit seinem breiten bankfachlichen Wissen, das von der Schalterarbeit über die Hypothekar- und Anlageberatung bis hin zu Projektleitung und Produktmanagement reicht, ist Christian Reinhard bestens für die Rolle als Leiter des Application Managements geeignet.
