Experience You Can Trust
The ICI management team is comprised of former financial industry core processing vendors and banking executives. With a background steeped in industry experience, we truly understand our bank and credit union clients’ needs and goals. Because we have served in senior roles with vendor companies, ICI consultants are in a unique position to negotiate a superior price with meaningful, long-range contractual terms. Our firm is small, nimble and cost-effective, compared to large integration firms. Our most senior experts are represented here:
