Silvia’s primary focus will be a combination of driving new client opportunities, developing and expanding opportunities with existing clients, while working on the creation and distribution of new products and services that drive growth for our clients. “We are extremely excited to have Ron onboard supporting the continued growth of our business as well as supporting our clients,” says Mike Knoop, Chief Executive Officer of Augeo FI. “Ron’s reputation in-market, wealth of knowledge of the industry and client-centric focus aligns with our core values and is exactly what we were looking for in our search for a top executive to add to our rapidly growing company.” Most of Silvia’s career has been in a client-focused role with an eye on product innovation bringing solution sets to the market.
With over 27 years of experience within the payments industry with responsibilities in many key leadership roles with Visa and prior at PSCU, Silvia will make a great addition to the Augeo FI executive team. Knoop added, “His background in the financial services space, his extreme dedication to balancing both the business demands and client needs, his passion for long-term client relationships and his deep knowledge of the industry will not only support Augeo FI’s desire to continue to expand on all levels, but also is key to support our client’s growth in the vastly competitive space.”
Silvia has been a partner with the Augeo FI team for several years. During the partnership, he has been extremely impressed with Augeo FI’s ability to offer flexible, market-driven solutions, quick innovation and strong focus on what is right for the business all while serving and supporting clients’ strategies. Silvia says, “This coupled with the increasing demand on issuers to drive heightened real-time engagement and awareness of card products as well as continued determination to build loyalty, differentiation and overall growth, I felt it was the right time to take my background and experience to an aggressive growth organization which I feel I can be additive to their direction and a positive influence for their clients.” Silvia adds, “The opportunity to continue to make a real impact in the market is what excites me the most, but being part of a company with such entrepreneurial spirit and great culture really is the icing on the cake.”
