MOSINEE, Wis., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WAUSAU Financial Systems, the industry leader in receivables processing solutions, today announced the appointment of Brian Mandel, a veteran professional services executive and consultant, as managing partner to oversee its Professional Services operation.
Mandel has 20-plus years of experience with IT professional services, solutions and consulting firms, including Unisys Corp., serving both public sector and commercial markets. He joined WAUSAU from systems integration and project management firms Emtec Inc. and Keane Inc., a unit of NTT Data Corp., where he served in executive management roles.
The WAUSAU Professional Services team offers a range of IT professional services. It supports the selection and installation of systems; advisory services specific to staffing; workflow; security; backups; database and failover issues and reviews for maximizing and securing third-party software.
"As the industry evolves and adopts new technologies, employing and integrating payments systems becomes increasingly complex," said Gary Cawthorne, WAUSAU president and CEO. "Brian's leadership, project-management skills and extensive experience in systems integration and consulting will ensure that our clients receive the assistance needed to manage and mitigate those complexities. He also will help clients accomplish business objectives by delivering the technology and support."
At Unisys, where he was a 13-year veteran completing his tenure there as vice president and managing partner, Mandel managed the public sector division with a specific emphasis on business process management. He designed and led the execution of integrated tax systems with the world's largest revenue agencies and supported several organizations with integrated data matching for fraud and criminal activity detection.
"Organizations express the urgent need to replace legacy core-payment systems and adopt new technologies, but barriers that range from limited resources to limitations with current systems make the process difficult," said Mandel. "Those organizations need a cost-effective blueprint and true partner to help them get there on time and on budget, and my team is excited to partner with customers to deliver on that promise."
