San Juan-based, full-service transaction processing company EVERTEC Inc. announced Thursday key organizational changes in its leadership team.
- Peter J. S. Smith will join EVERTEC’s executive team as CFO on Sept. 1, 2015. The company’s current CFO, Juan José Román-Jiménez, will be leaving to pursue other opportunities.
- Operations and Information Technology will be re-organized to decentralize IT services so that customer support will report directly to the key business leaders.

Eduardo Camargo, chief information officer, will be leaving EVERTEC to pursue other opportunities, the company informed.
“EVERTEC has a very clear mission to effectively grow, and these organizational changes will improve our customer focus and our accountability across the organization,” said EVERTEC President Mac Schuessler.
