CALGARY, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Celero, a leading provider of IT solutions
to financial institutions across Canada, has been named among the top
100 global providers of financial technology. This is the sixth year in
a row Celero has been included on the list, moving from the 85th
ranking in 2012 to 81st in 2013. The FinTech 100 is an annual
international listing of the top vertical technology vendors that
derive more than one third of their revenue from this industry as named
by American Banker, Bank Technology News and IDC Financial Insights.
"We are honoured to once again be named to this prestigious list," said
Bob Reczka, chief executive officer, Celero. "Celebrating our tenth
anniversary in 2013, we are proud of the growth we have achieved over
the past decade and the dedication and focus of the Celero team to
deliver world-class technology solutions to our customers that are
reliable, innovative and cost-effective."
Debuting on the FinTech 100 list in 2008, Celero's inclusion on the
global ranking illustrates the leading presence of the company in the
Canadian financial industry. "Our growth is built on our ability to
help financial institutions achieve their business goals," says Reczka.
"We work with our customers as partners, helping them get the most out
of their technology. Technology is a key differentiator for credit
unions and Celero remains focused on ensuring our customers remain
relevant, competitive and positioned for growth in the future."
Each fall, American Banker, Bank Technology News and IDC Financial
Insights publish a comprehensive Fortune 500-style ranking of the
hardware, software and service providers to the financial services
industry, known as the FinTech 100. To qualify for the FinTech 100
list, eligible companies must receive at least 33 per cent of their
revenue from the sale of technology and services from financial
services companies. The ranking of the top vendors is categorized and
evaluated based on calendar year-end revenues and the percentage of
revenues exclusively attributed to financial services. Data is gathered
from surveys completed by vendors, as well as original research and
market analysis conducted by IDC Financial Insights.
