BlackFin Group, a management and technology consulting firm, has recruited Pedro Fong, a former business architect for the Federal Reserve System with over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, as a Principal.
In his new role, Fong will be part of the consulting team that works to empower lenders to take full advantage of today’s cutting edge technologies.
During his 8 years at the Fed, Pedro was responsible, in part, for creating 3-to 5-year, forward-looking strategic roadmaps as well as identifying future technologies to meet the business capability needs of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy goals. He characterizes this as “helping to bridge the gap between business and technology.”
“Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and other cutting edge technologies are quickly becoming the fundamental building blocks organizations will use to achieve their business goals,” Fong said. “It’s not going to be about any specific tool or brand, but rather about changing the culture in an industry that has resisted change for too long. I’m excited to be part of a team that helps organizations tackle this because there is no tool they can pull off the shelf that will get them there.”
