defi restructures to tackle cloud excellence and digital dexterity and focus on cybersecurity and data protection
defi SOLUTIONS today announced the addition of Eric Karmazin to the defi TEAM as head of operations. Eric reports to defi CIO/CTO Shaimaa Elk and will be responsible for corporate IT services, technical operations, infrastructure architecture, and the cloud excellence organization.
According to Shaimaa, defi has recently restructured its operations team around 3 goals: cloud excellence, digital dexterity, and focus on cybersecurity and data protection. All defi loan or lease products – for origination, servicing, digital solutions that reduce the space between borrower and lenders, and technology-enabled business process outsourcing — are currently hosted in both the Microsoft Azure and AWS clouds. These cloud-based systems reduce friction and offer the most hardened systems from a data security standpoint and the greatest flexibility, scalability, and ease of implementation for the addition of new products and services. They allow for capacity expansion without restructuring costs, have demonstrated strength in machine learning, and draw from deep wells of internal research and development expertise.
“Given Eric’s broad operations expertise and depth of experience as an early adopter of both Azure and AWS clouds, Eric is a natural fit to lead this organization,” said Shaimaa.
Eric comes to defi from Moody’s Corporation, where he served as SVP cloud and strategic operations and developed a global cloud strategy and security architecture plan that met internal and external regulatory requirements. He was formerly director global IT with ACI worldwide, a global IT organization of 500 employees in 15 countries. At ACI, he oversaw the user help desk, architecture, systems, desktops, network, datacenter, applications, devops, security, and software development.
“This is an exciting time to be joining defi SOLUTIONS,” said Eric. “I look forward to working with this talented and dedicated team to help them ramp up the positive impact on our clients’ businesses and their customers’ lives, on the entire defi organization and the industry as a whole.”
