|FICO Appoints Jean-Michel Schneider to Expand French Operations|
|Monday, 16 July 2012|
FICO, the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that Jean-Michel Schneider has joined the company to lead its French operations. Based in Paris, Schneider will focus on helping French businesses manage risk, fight fraud and improve customer relationships to drive revenue and profitability.
Schneider joins FICO from ACI Worldwide, where he spent 12 years as a sales manager, first overseeing Eastern Europe and then building the company’s business in France. While working with the top banks in France, he earned a strong reputation as an expert and advisor on fraud management. Previously, Schneider led international sales teams for both Recognition Equipment Inc. and NCH Corporation. He holds an MBA from the University of Dallas and a Bachelor’s degree in business from IPAG in Paris.
“Jean-Michel Schneider has an excellent record of helping French businesses use analytic solutions to strengthen their profitability,” said Antonio Garcia Rouco, who directs FICO’s operations in Western Europe. “His expertise will help even more French businesses benefit from our powerful and innovative analytic solutions for fraud and risk management, marketing and collections.”
“French businesses face enormous pressures — domestically, within the Eurozone and in their operations across the globe,” said Schneider. “Over the course of my career, I’ve come to admire FICO solutions in part because they help businesses prosper through even the most difficult periods. FICO already has a roster of blue-chip clients in France, and I’m eager to work with them and others to unlock the power of FICO analytics in their business.”
FICO works with leading businesses across Europe, serving clients in banking, insurance, retail and other industries. The company’s customer management and payment card fraud solutions hold the greatest market share in the region.
