Recognizing the need for a provider that offers comprehensive solutions that will satisfy the business requirements and unique challenges faced by financial institutions in the Caribbean, Global Bank of Commerce and V2R, LLC launched V2R FS as a joint venture.
Newly appointed V2R FS President and Chief Executive Officer David McConney has held several executive management positions with banks in the Caribbean.
McConney further explained that V2R FS's solutions will empower banks to better know their diverse customers and understand their unique needs.
V2R FS's initial offerings of core financial processing solutions, including Internet banking capabilities, card processing solutions, knowledge management and bank compliance services will be provided through a combination of acquired technology, alliance partnerships and outsourced processing services to technology providers.
V2R FS Chairman Brian Stuart-Young explained these solutions are designed to strengthen the Caribbean's role as one of the most vibrant financial centers in the world.
Unlike other consultant firms in the region, V2R FS will provide complete solutions from strategic counsel to technological implementation.
Bahram Yusefzadeh, vice chairman of V2R FS, expressed excitement over launching this new organization to ensure the success of the Caribbean's financial community.
