âThe opportunity to join Firm58 was compelling,â noted Fera. âThe firm was founded on the clear vision that post-trade management software solutions could offer the same strategic value that front office solutions, such as order management, are bringing to todayâs financial services companies. That vision combined with an on-demand platform, and a talented group of leaders and top tier investors, made Firm58 an exciting opportunity.â
Prior to joining Parlano in 2000, Fera spent time at Platinum Technologies, which was acquired by Computer Associates in 1999. He has also held executive management positions at numerous companies and currently sits on NewsGator Technologiesâ Board of Directors.
Fera holds a bachelorâs degree in finance from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a masterâs degree in management from Northwestern Universityâs Kellogg Graduate School of Management. Fera also has extensive speaking experience having presented more than 100 times on finance issues like company valuation to the American Management Association and various universities.
