Woodall has served as senior vice president, chief accounting officer and controller for FIS since July 2008 and was responsible for managing all FIS accounting functions including accounting policy, internal and external financial reporting, financial planning and analysis, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Over the past two years, Woodall has taken on an increasingly expanded role in investor communications, capital allocation strategy, capital committee and executive committee.

Prior to joining FIS, Woodall served as executive director and controller of AT&T’s southeast region. Prior to AT&T, Woodall was a senior manager in the audit practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers serving technology and communications clients.

“Woody’s contributions over the past five years have been crucial in helping FIS achieve its financial performance goals and deliver increased value to its shareholders,” said Gary Norcross, FIS president and chief operating officer. “The appointment of Woody to the CFO position brings proven financial leadership to our Executive Management team and ensures that we can continue to deliver on the financial strategies that support our growth goals. We are confident that Woody will help drive FIS’ continued success.”

Commenting on the planned transition period, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frank Martire stated, “On behalf of the Board and FIS Management, we are pleased to welcome Woody to his new position. He has played an integral role in the development and execution of FIS’ financial strategy and has built deep relationships with the investment community. His expertise across all aspects of our financial operations will result in a shortened and smooth transition period of the CFO function.”
