Fidelity National Information Services, Inc., a Fortune 500 company and a leading provider of core processing, card issuer and transaction processing services to financial institutions worldwide, has appointed George Scanlon as its chief financial officer and James Woodall as its chief accounting officer. These individuals replace Jeff Carbiener and Francis Chan, who have assumed new positions with Lender Processing Services, Inc., which was spun-off from FIS on July 2, 2008.

With more than 28 years of professional accounting, audit and financial management expertise, Scanlon comes to FIS from BFC Financial Corporation and Levitt Corporation, diversified holding companies based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where he served most recently as chief financial officer. In this capacity, Scanlon was responsible for financial reporting and planning, managing SEC compliance, investor relations, and overseeing external audit and tax preparation. Scanlon began his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Chicago and later served as senior vice president with Ryder System, Inc. in Miami, where he held controller, corporate planning and development responsibilities. Scanlon holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Notre Dame and earned his master’s degree in business administration from the
University of Miami.

“George and Woody bring more than 40 years of combined expertise in
accounting, finance and audit,” said Lee Kennedy, president and chief executive
officer for FIS. “We are fortunate to add two such highly capable and qualified
finance professionals to our organization.”
