Earlier in his career, Fishman served in a variety of senior financial roles at NCR, including corporate controller, vice president of corporate planning, assistant corporate controller, CFO of the payment solutions division, director of mergers and acquisitions (M&As), and director of planning and pricing in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Before joining NCR, he worked with Price Waterhouse for six years in Toronto and London. He holds an honour’s degree in business administration from the University of Western Ontario, a master’s degree in business administration from The Wharton School of Business and holds certified public accountant (CPA), chartered accountant (CA) and chartered financial analyst (CFA) certifications.
