Omaha, Neb., Feb. 5, 2021 – The Greater Omaha Chamber today applauded Fiserv, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: FISV) continued commitment to Nebraska, reiterating Omaha’s strength as a financial services hub, and celebrating Fiserv’s recent accolades as FORTUNE’s No. 8 “World’s Most Admired Company for 2021.”
“Today’s announcement is cause for celebration of a continued partnership with a world-class organization: Fiserv,” said David G. Brown, president and CEO, Greater Omaha Chamber.
Brown’s comments came in response to Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts’ February 5 press conference, where Ricketts was joined by Frank Bisignano, Fiserv’s president and chief executive officer and board member, who shared the global leader in payment and fintech solutions’ plans for an ongoing presence in Greater Omaha.
“Fiserv’s decision to continue a relationship with the Omaha metro comes in no small thanks to an uncompromising commitment to collaboration and a remarkable history of Fiserv’s presence in Omaha. We congratulate everyone involved in reaching the decision that was announced today,” Brown said.
Fiserv, a $15.8 billion global leader in financial services and payments technology, is Omaha’s No. 5 employer, according to the Greater Omaha Chamber.
“There is little more energizing than collaboration,” said W. Todd Johnson, senior vice president, economic development, Greater Omaha Chamber. “We’re happy to continue the momentum of Omaha’s finance and insurance industry with today’s developments, and we cheer Fiserv in their continued success.”
The finance and insurance industry contributed $10.6 billion to Greater Omaha’s GDP in 2019, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Brown said Omaha’s fintech / finance and insurance industry is “70 percent larger” than the national average – with a concentration in payment processing and compliance that is 6.4 times higher than the national average.
