CSI appoints new CFO

US-based computer services firm CSI announced on December 13 that Brian Brown has been appointed as the company’s chief financial officer, with immediate effect.

“I am pleased to announce that Brian Brown has been named CSI’s new Chief Financial Officer,” says Steven Powless, chairman and CEO of CSI.

Brown has over 15 years of experience in finance and accounting. He previously served FCB Services as vice president, finance and accounting manager. Prior to this, he was an internal auditor for Farmers Capital Bank and a financial institutions examiner for the Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions.

“Brian’s experience and his ties to CSI and to the Paducah community made him the top candidate for CSI’s next CFO. He has taken on increasingly important roles at CSI over the past seven years. He joined CSI as director of financial planning and analysis in 2012 and was promoted to vice president of finance in 2016 and to senior vice president of finance in 2018. We are very pleased to have the continuity Brian will provide CSI in his new role," adds Powless.

Joe Cammarata appointed Investview CEO

Investview has named Joseph Cammarata as its chief executive officer. Cammarata is the former president of tZero, a subsidiary of Overstock.com.

“I have spent the last 28 years originating and developing financial technologies that have changed capital markets," he said. "Further, I monetised those technologies and created value for those companies which were ultimately sold at a much higher value.”

Cammarata replaces Annette Raynor, who resumes her former role as chief operations officer. 

Investview’s chief digital officer John Tabacco said: “Joe’s skill set, vision and knack for creating changing technologies is precisely the reason I recruited him to join Investview, much like when I recruited him to join Overstock to jump start the blockchain revolution. I couldn’t think of a better leader than Joe to deploy disruptive financial technologies while enhancing Investview shareholder value.”

Crealogix announces CEO

On December 16 Crealogix announced the appointment of Oliver Weber as chief executive officer.

Weber will be responsible for continuing the transformation process started by his predecessor Thomas Avedik to become the leading global SaaS digital banking software provider. He has been a part of the group since September 2018.

Cetera names Adam Antoniades CEO

California-based financial services firm Cetera Financial Group appointed Adam Antoniades as chief executive officer. Antoniades was associated with the company most recently as president.

“I am honoured by the opportunity to lead Cetera as CEO. I look forward to working closely with the board, management team, our employees and our community of financial professionals to continue to co-create an advice-centric future for our profession," Antoniades said in a statement.

DailyPay doubles c-suite in 90 days amid high growth for on-demand pay leader

On-demand pay solutions company DailyPay appointed Scot Parnell as CFO. Parnell brings almost three decades of finance leadership experience to the rapidly growing DailyPay team.

"I can't think of a more exciting time to join DailyPay as it sets the standard for this new financial services category," said Parnell.

Most recently, he was the CFO of TIAA's retail and institutional division, which is the trillion-dollar asset management firm's largest sector. Prior to that, he was the CFO of Crump Group, a JC Flowers-backed wholesale life insurance distributor. Parnell has also served as CFO of the NYSE-listed student loan originator Student Loan Corporation.

Parnell added: "DailyPay is a committed partner in helping companies use on-demand pay to increase employee engagement and retention, all of which positively impact a company's bottom line. All financial officers should take notice and I am eager to further engage that community."
