Meet…Fred Schpero

fred_squareEagle Investment Systems’ Chief Financial Officer discusses his role in the organization and how he balances the needs of the clients, the shareholder (BNY Mellon) and the rest of the Eagle organization. 

Q: Without cutting you in half and counting the rings, can you just tell us how long you’ve been at Eagle and elaborate on some of the biggest changes you’ve seen over those years?

A: First of all, thank you for not cutting me in half. And if you did, you would see that some circles are bigger than others, as some years seemed to fly by, while others felt like an eternity. That’s another way of saying that I’ve seen the ups and downs of the technology expenditure cycles in my 16 years here at Eagle.

I think the biggest change I’ve witnessed over that time is Eagle’s reaction to those cycles. Early on, we had a tendency to build software for a user base that was pre-determined in our minds. But that seems like a lifetime ago and I don’t even recognize this past iteration in the 2015 version of the Eagle application.

Today’s Eagle is in tune to the trends in the marketplace, and specifically the significant movement over the last five years to Eagle ACCESSSM, our secure private cloud. We are also focused on being solutions-oriented and really understanding the needs of our clients. We work with third parties to expand what we refer to as the Eagle Ecosystem, and recognize that partnering is a good thing, especially with our parent company. This is becoming even more obvious as Eagle has become an integral part of BNY Mellon Technology Solutions, which leverages BNY Mellon’s existing technology assets to offer integrated, digital, platform solutions across the financial services landscape. It also doesn’t hurt that BNY Mellon Technology Solutions is led by Eagle’s current chairman, and former CEO, John Lehner.
