Ellen Alemany Joins FIS Board of Directors


FIS, a provider of banking and payments technology, outsourcing and consulting solutions, announced that Ellen Alemany has joined the company’s board of directors. A former head of RBS Americas, and chair and CEO of RBS’ Citizens Financial Group, Alemany has more than 35 years of experience in the financial industry.

Alemany began her career in Operations at Chase Manhattan before being recruited to Citibank in 1987. Beginning as area head of Citibank’s NY Leveraged Capital Group, she grew to CEO of Global Transaction Services at the firm and spent five years on the board of Citigroup North America. In 2007, the chance to run a standalone business compelled Alemany to join RBS as head of RBS Americas, and chair and CEO of RBS’ Citizens Financial Group.

Providing international leadership as well, Alemany served on the RBS Executive Committee, and served as a consultant to the company until her retirement in 2013. She also served on the Federal Reserve Advisory Board from 2008 to 2010, and has served on the boards of Automatic Data Processing since 2011 and CIT Group since January 2014.
