Personnel Matters: Introduction of the new FIS Management Board

This year, there was a lot going on at FIS: the groundbreaking ceremony for another office building, significant investments in the FIS solutions and exciting customer projects. Now, the reorganization of the FIS management board will follow in the new year. Dieter Ball and Dirk Schneider will take on the role as new managing directors in November 2021, replacing Wolfgang Ebner and Frank Schöngarth as long-serving managing directors.

Ralf Bernhardt comments on the reorganization: “On behalf of the entire company, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Wolfgang and Frank for their dedicated service since the company was founded 30 years ago. With our long-term preparation for personnel changes, we want to ensure a smooth transition for our customers and employees during the management realignment.”  

Dieter Ball has been working for FIS since 1995 and was most recently responsible for the SAP ERP & Logistics division as a member of the management board. His new areas from 2022 will also include HRM and Business Process Integration. Dirk Schneider also looks back on more than 10 years of FIS experience and will in future take over the overall management of the Customer Centric Solutions division in addition to the Sales & Marketing departments.  

As CIO and new member of the management board, Stephan Wagner will be responsible for Customer Expert Services and Transition. His career at FIS also began more than 20 years ago as a consultant, most recently as department manager for customer development projects. Ralf Bernhardt is taking on the area of Enterprise Information Management in addition to his role as chairman of the management board. Christian Lang completes the management team as longstanding commercial manager.
