In his new role, Adam will be responsible for leading the IT operations, delivery and customer-facing innovation efforts of Fidor Group.
In addition, he will set the strategic IT direction, governance and execution of the group's international growth plans.
He brings 21 years of international experience to the role and joins Fidor from a Middle East-based IT solutions provider, where he was vice-president and CIO.
In his previous roles, Adam has advised global clients in large solutions, outsourcing and transformational deals, including software applications, product, mobility, analytics, cloud and security.
He has worked in senior leadership positions at companies including IBM, AT&T and Atos, and in the US, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
He was also involved in advising on the acquisition and integration of Siemens IT.
Gé Drossaert, board member at Fidor, said that having Adam join Fidor Group as its CIO was an essential step in its global growth plans.
“He has a wealth of experience to bring to the role that will benefit Fidor Group, Fidor 'as-a-service' partners and our end customers hugely.”
Adam added: “Fidor Group has been an instrumental innovator within the financial services sector for years and I'm delighted to be joining at a very exciting time.
“My role will be to ensure our IT operations match our ambitious growth strategy.”
