Farm Credit Financial Partners, Inc. (FPI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jim McCormack as the company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Technology Officer.
McCormack joined FPI in 2016 and most recently served as the Senior Vice President of Engineering and Architecture. In that position, McCormack leads the organization’s engineering and architecture groups. His team is responsible for designing and developing the software applications at the heart of Farm Credit Financial Partners' innovative ecosystem of cloud-based products and services.
Previously, he also served as the Senior Director of Application Development. Though he has provided software engineering expertise in various industries, he has been helping teams develop applications exclusively in the financial services industry since 2008, which previously included commercial banks and investment firms. He holds a BA in business and an MBA from the Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University.
“Jim has played a critical role in shaping the technology platforms we have transitioned to over the past several years,” said CEO Bob Passini. “He continues to do so through the development and implementation of strategies that will carry FPI into the future as a trusted technology partner to our customers.”
The appointment of McCormack as Chief Technology Officer comes at a pivotal time for FPI as the company shifts into a service delivery organization and value-added systems integrator. Jim will play a critical role in FPI’s latest initiatives, including modernizing its legacy platforms, deploying a commercial integration platform, and enacting a holistic document management strategy. FPI’s focus remains on accelerating and improving systems integration for its customer-owners.
“I am very appreciative of my team's efforts that have allowed me to be elevated to a higher position of trust in the organization. FPI's talented individuals are why we are successful, and I am grateful to be part of this group of professionals,” said Jim McCormack. “I look forward to executing a strategy of agility and delivering a flexible system of business capabilities and services that improve our industry's competitive stance.”
