Meet our managing partner—William C. Ristvedt

Mr. Ristvedt has over 35 years of technology business experience ranging from fortune 100 to start-ups. His experience has been centered in the intelligent delivery of software, services and infrastructure to the banking industry. His work with banks and those who provide services to banks has always revolved around un-complicating the technical process while delivering a superior offering that allows banks to compete and win at a higher level then their competitors.

Mr. Ristvedt was most recently President and CEO of the company he founded—CFC Technology Corporation. CFC has subsequently been acquired by private equity. CFC is in the business of delivering services and technology to Community FI's focusing on the FI's strategic growth.

Mr. Ristvedt also founded and was the CEO of Fernbrook Financial—a capital funding and strategic software developer for the financial and software industries. Fernbrook developed a sophisticated web portal making software deployment and customer on-boarding more efficient and cost effective than any other prior practice allowed. Fernbrook was sold to Private Equity investment in February 2010.

Prior to founding CFC and Fernbrook, Bill held various management and marketing positions with Unisys Corporation, all of which were focused on the Banking and Financial Services business sectors.
