Finastra has announced the expansion of its leadership team with the addition of Isabel Fernandez, an experienced senior banking and technology executive. She will take up the role of EVP for the company’s Lending Business Unit, effective May 2022.
Most recently, Fernandez was Board Member and Global Head of Wholesale Banking at ING Bank. While there, she was overseeing growth in Lending, Financial Markets and Transaction Services, including Payments & Cash Management. Her main focus on that position was accelerating growth, new business models and digitalization and transformational projects including strategic technology-led innovation and Know Your Customer (KYC) initiatives. She also played a significant role in ING’s global sustainability strategy.

We are thrilled that Isabel is joining us on our journey towards being ecosystem orchestrators for Banking as a Service (BaaS) and the future of financial services software. She brings deep expertise in the lending and technology arena, and I am confident her strategic leadership will help us drive even more growth for our market-leading lending solutions and the thousands of banks around the world that rely on them to power their business.
