FIS™ (NYSE: FIS), the world’s largest provider of banking and payments technology, outsourcing and consulting solutions, today announced that Ellen Alemany has joined the company’s board of directors. A former head of RBS Americas, and Chair and CEO of RBS’ Citizens Financial Group, Alemany has more than 35 years of experience in the financial industry.

Beginning as Area Head of Citibank’s NY Leveraged Capital Group, she grew to CEO of Global Transaction Services at the firm and spent five years on the board of Citigroup North America, Inc.
