These appointments are effective July 1, 2021.
Curtis Campbell is president of software at Blucora, Inc. (Nasdaq: BCOR) where he previously served as president of TaxAct. Mr. Campbell brings extensive experience with infrastructure and cloud computing as well as digital development and a keen focus on customer experience from his work with several technology companies. Prior to joining Blucora, Mr. Campbell previously worked with Capital One Financial Corporation as managing vice president of consumer auto and with Intuit Inc. where he was vice president of product management, strategy, analytics, and innovation.
David Foss, president and chief executive officer at Jack Henry, stated, "We are pleased to welcome Curtis to our board of directors. He is a highly respected and seasoned leader with a unique background that includes a track record of achievement in the technology industry combined with a focus on the needs of customers. We are confident Curtis will provide valuable engagement and perspective as we continue to execute on our strategic objectives."
Mr. Foss, who joined Jack Henry in 1999 when he arranged the sale of BancTec's financial solutions division to the company, became president in 2014 and CEO in 2016. He has been a member of the Jack Henry board of directors since 2017. After the board vote he noted "Our board is a very talented group of people who come with a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds, so to have been selected as the next board chair by this group is humbling."
Matt Flanigan, vice chair and lead director of the board, commented, "After a thoughtful and deliberate review process conducted by the board of directors, we are once again combining the positions of CEO and board chair at Jack Henry. Dave is exceptionally well prepared to take on this dual role based upon his outstanding 22 years with the company and his more than 35 years in the financial services industry. Just as we experienced when his predecessor Jack Prim held these joint responsibilities from 2012–2016, the board strongly believes that having Dave serve as both CEO and board chair will be beneficial for our shareholders, customers and employees."
