For more than eight years, Paladin has been a leader in the industry and grown exponentially by focusing on financial institutions’ best interests and profitability – that’s what drew me in.

Paladin fs (http://www.paladin-fs.com), a hard-hitting negotiator that stands up to the core and IT banking oligopoly to secure better terms and pricing for community financial institutions, today announced Linda Stahl as national partner manager.

Stahl brings three decades of core data processing vendor-side experience to the team. She will manage Paladin’s northeastern region, supporting clients in their core and IT contract negotiations to ensure the best possible deal, at the best possible price. One of Paladin's unique market advantages is assembling a team of former core IT executives who know first-hand the ins-and-outs of complex and over-priced contracts. 

“By hiring Linda, we add to our arsenal of top-tier talent to help level the playing field for community banks and credit unions,” said Aaron Silva, president and CEO of Paladin fs. “Her understanding of the core vendor side of the industry and years of advisory expertise will enable us to continue to grow and stand up for the rights of financial institutions.”

Prior to Paladin, Stahl spent 31 years at Connecticut Online Computer Center (COCC), a non-profit core data processor, where she led the development of B2B marketing programs, negotiated and closed vendor and client contracts, and grew the company’s customer base by more than 800 percent. Drawing on her extensive negotiation experience with COCC, Stahl will contribute to Paladin’s business development strategy and client consulting practice, with a singular focus on help community financial institutions grow their bottom line by eliminating one-sided terms and contracts.

“For more than eight years, Paladin has been a leader in the industry and grown exponentially by focusing on financial institutions’ best interests and profitability – that’s what drew me in,” said Stahl. “I’m thrilled to join a team that’s focused on assisting others for the better.”
