Anthony Jabbour has been named CEO of Black Knight, offering software, data and analytics to the mortgage industry, replacing current CEO Tom Sanzone, who will transition to vice chairman of the board.
Jabbour will assume his new role on April 1. Sanzone will assist with the transition.
Jabbour was most recently the chief operating officer of Fidelity National Information Services Inc.’s banking and payments business. In this role, he had global accountability for solution development, sales and delivery of banking and payments offerings for clients of all sizes and in all geographic markets.
Since joining Fidelity National Information Services in 2004, Jabbour held positions of increasing responsibility in operations and delivery services as a key member of the executive leadership team. During his tenure overseeing the North American market, he consistently grew the segment through a solid combination of organic growth, product expansion, market penetration and strategic acquisitions.
Prior to joining Fidelity National Information Services, Jabbour worked in IBM’s Global Services group, managing complex client projects and relationships. Among the key projects was the launch of a standalone Internet bank for CIBC, a major Canadian financial institution. That project led to him joining CIBC, where he built similar capabilities for the firm’s U.S. market, Black Knight says in a release.
