TIS (Treasury Intelligence Solutions). a leading cloud platform vendor for corporate payments, has announced Chris Calhoun’s appointment as CEO, Americas, as part of its commitment to its strategic focus on the U.S. market.

Chris Calhoun will transition out of his current position as Board Director and join the Executive Team to lead TIS activities in the United States, its largest growth market. In this role, he will report directly to Erik Masing, Global CEO of TIS.

Chris is an accomplished CEO, board director, and angel investor and brings more than two decades of executive management and governance experience in the FinTech vertical to the company. He has held key roles in public and private companies with significant experience in V.C. and private equity-backed businesses. Most recently, Chris was the Chairman and CEO of Scivantage, a leading provider of enterprise wealth management and tax solutions to banks and brokerages.

From 2000 to 2020, Chris held various leadership roles at GAIN Capital (acquired by StoneX in 2020), a global leader in online retail trading, including Chief Operating Officer, Board Director, and Risk Committee Chair. Early in his career, Chris held the position of Chief Operating Officer of FNX Limited (exited and acquired by SunGard/FIS), a provider of trading and risk management solutions to money center banks.

“We are very excited to have Chris join the Executive Team as CEO, Americas. Chris’ extensive fintech experience, business development success, and strong leadership background make him an ideal candidate to spearhead our growth efforts in the U.S. On behalf of the Board and the rest of the Executive Team, we look forward to working with him on building upon our success in the U.S.,” said Masing.

The appointment marks the latest in a series of significant milestones for TIS. Recently, the company closed its largest contract to date in the U.S. Additionally, its U.S. financial sponsor, Aquiline Technology Growth, increased its investment in the company.

“Given its continued momentum in the U.S., TIS has full support from Aquiline and the Board to execute on its aggressive U.S. growth plans,” said Mike Cichowski, member of TIS Board of Directors who leads Growth Equity Investing at Aquiline Technology Growth.
