FICO EXPANDS PRESENCE IN THE NORDICS WITH NEW OFFICE IN STOCKHOLM

FICO (NYSE:FICO), the predictive analytics and decision management software company announced it is opening an office in Stockholm, Sweden. At a launch event on April 14, Wayne Huyard, executive vice president for Sales, Marketing and Services, will speak about the growing trend toward precision decisioning that is driving demand for predictive analytics solutions in the Nordics and across the globe.

FICO has been expanding its business in the Nordics, working with important regional banks including EnterCard, Gjensidige and Nordea. The company helps these firms and others use advanced analytics to fight fraud, manage customers and improve collections.

The team based in Stockholm will be headed by Jack Shepherd, a 12-year veteran of FICO who previously worked in the investment banking sector for Misys Risk Systems and Wang Laboratories. Shepherd’s team includes Kristian Brunn, a Stockholm-based native with more than 20 years of experience within the financial services industry. Before joining FICO, Brunn held senior sales positions at GE Capital, CIGNA, WasaKredit/Länsförsäkringar and other firms.

“We continue to see a strong spirit of innovation in the Nordic countries, as businesses use analytics to compete for customer loyalty,” said Shepherd. “We are committed to bringing our best customer service and ground-breaking Big Data analytics solutions to this important region.”
