Perhaps a nice change at NICE Actimize?

Though not publicly released, news out of NICE Actimize is that long-time CEO Amir Orad is leaving the company effective May 1. Indicative of the ‘what a small world this is’ nature of the financial crimes technology marketplace, former Pegasystems co-founder and head of Americas for BAE Systems Detica, Joe Friscia, will be taking over the helm at that time.

Mr. Orad led NICE Actimize’s product and strategy functions prior to his five year tenure as CEO. During his tenure, he scaled the business size over six-fold. He is also a founding board member at BillGuard the venture backed personal finance analytics and security mobile app company.

Prior to Actimize, Orad was co-founder and CMO of Cyota a cyber security and payment fraud cloud company protecting over 100 million online users, acquired by RSA Security for $145M. Following the acquisition, he was VP Marketing at RSA.

I’ve known both Amir and Joe for several years, and have a tremendous amount of respect for both gentlemen. While it’s sad to see Amir leave the organization, I know that his rather large shoes will be more than adequately filled by Mr. Friscia.

Joe’s background is well-suited to this new position, and all of us here at FightFinancialCrimes wish him well. Joe joined Detica when BAE Systems acquired Norkom Technologies in early 2011, where he served as General Manager and Executive Vice President of the Americas. Joe led the rapid growth of Norkom in the Americas, with direct responsibility for sales, revenue and profit as well as managing multi-discipline teams based in North America. Prior to Norkom, Joe helped start Pegasystems Inc in 1984, a successful Business Process Management software company that went public in 1996.

Best of luck to Amir in his new ventures, and to Joe as he guides Actimize into it’s next phase.
