John Meyer has been developing solutions to protect and help financial institutions grow for more than 20 years. He has been a critical part of the organization since 2012 when he joined as chief product officer and the company was still known as Banker’s Toolbox. Prior to Abrigo, he was a senior executive with Harland Financial Solutions (now Finastra), where he managed teams providing teller, new account origination, internet banking, item processing, and BSA/CIP solutions for over 2,500 financial institutions. In his early career, John worked for a community bank in Western Pennsylvania. He holds a BS in computer science from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and an MBA from the University of Washington.
A favorite quote of John’s is by mountain climber Jamie Clarke, who says,
“We have to acknowledge that what we are doing is hard. One thing we can do in difficulty is to see the truth so we can react to it, when so often we walk around convincing ourselves of other realities because the truth is too painful. I want to foster a team where we have the courage to face the truth of our situation.”
