IT CFO VETERAN Stephen Wilson has taken a non-executive director and audit committee chairman role at Xchanging.

Currently the chief financial officer of financial software provider Misys, Wilson was pivotal in the British company's acquisition by Vista Equity Partners for £1.27bn earlier this year.

Wilson joined Misys in 2009 as vice president of group finance taking on the CFO and executive vice-president since 2010. Prior to that, he spent 25 years at IBM in a variety of roles in Europe and the US, latterly as CFO of IBM UK, Ireland and South Africa.

Xchanging chairman Geoff Unwin said: "Stephen has significant business experience in both technology and outsourcing. His track record at Misys and IBM will be greatly valued on the Xchanging board."

Wilson takes up his role on 1 September.

"Joining Xchanging at this time offers a great opportunity to contribute to the future development of the business," he said.
