Chairman and CEO, First Data Corporation
Doctor of Commercial Science

Frank Bisignano was appointed chief executive officer and a member of the board of directors of First Data Corporation (FDC) in April 2013. In his first year, Bisignano launched an equity plan that put ownership in the hands of FDC employees; unveiled a new tablet-based point-of-sale solution; and engaged/acquired a handful of leading technology start-ups, effectively transforming FDC from a traditional payments processing company to a full-service product and technology solutions provider. On March 5, 2014, Frank was named chairman of the board in addition to his role as CEO.

Prior to FDC, Bisignano served as co-chief operating officer for JPMorgan Chase and the CEO of Mortgage Banking. Under Bisignano, Mortgage Banking reported 2012 net income of $3.3 billion, compared with a net loss of $2.1 billion in 2011. As co-COO, Bisignano oversaw technology, real estate, operations, procurement, compliance, regulatory control and oversight, resiliency, security and safety, and general services for all of JPMC’s businesses in more than 60 countries.

Prior to JPMC, Bisignano was the CEO of Citigroup's Global Transactions Services (GTS) and a management committee member. Under his leadership, GTSs' revenue grew to $6 billion from $4 billion annually. Bisignano was also chief administrative officer of Citigroup's Corporate and Investment Bank, a senior executive VP, and deputy head of technology and operations. During 9/11, Bisignano created and executed Citigroup's successful business continuity plan, relocating 16,000 employees displaced by the loss of 1.3 million square feet when 7 World Trade Center was destroyed. At Smith Barney, Bisignano helped lead and integrate the firm’s strategic acquisitions that led to the formation of Citigroup.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Bisignano serves on the board of the National September 11th Memorial and Museum, the Board of Trustees of the Mount Sinai Health System, and as a trustee for the Battery Conservancy and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. He is married with three children.
