Among other things, the global company provides account and card-issuing processing, network services, eCommerce products and the cloud-based Clover point-of-sale system.

The expanded Fiserv executive team includes Guy Chiarello, currently the chief administrative officer. The industry veteran has been promoted to chief operating officer of Fiserv. The release said that, in his 30-year career, Chiarello “has been at the forefront of banking, technology, and innovation.” The company said that Chiarello will “create a high-performance workplace and support the company’s focus on future growth.”

Suzan Kereere will join Fiserv as chief growth officer, a new position. Kereere, who has expertise in payments and technology platforms, will work on strategy, acquisitions, and business development initiatives.

Most recently, Kereere served as global head of merchant sales and acquiring at Visa. Her background also includes leadership roles at American Express, including head of its U.S. national merchant business and head of its global network business.

In addition, Adam Rosman will rejoin Fiserv as the company’s chief administrative officer and chief legal officer. He will be responsible for Fiserv’s legal and compliance departments, ethics and government relations.
