"Now more than ever, business and IT leaders need practical and actionable strategies to produce results quickly and with lasting impact, and I believe in the firm’s peer-to-peer advisory model, of experience over theory." - Mike Abramovich, Lead Principal, Wavestone US

IT and business consulting firm Wavestone US is pleased to announce the recent appointment of senior IT executive Mike Abramovich as Lead Principal. He brings more than 30 years of technology experience, with particular expertise in business process, requirements analysis, enterprise software, enterprise architecture, and ITIL. He has proven himself as a trusted business partner having steered well-architected tech solutions that drive revenue and improve efficiency at Fortune 500 companies. As Lead Principal, he will focus on technology resiliency, technical due diligence, customer experience digital transformation, enterprise architecture, and infrastructure modernization and management.

Abramovich has extensive experience in the financial services industry. Prior to joining Wavestone, Abramovich held senior-level positions at Truist (formerly SunTrust), Synovus, Fifth-Third Bank, JPMorgan Chase, and Fidelity Investments. As VP, Technology Site Reliability Engineering at Truist, he led Infrastructure-related activities in the successful merger of BB&T and SunTrust Bank. As Senior Director of Enterprise Architecture at Synovus, he developed standard architectural metrics, reports, and assessments for the executive team, business, and IT management to help better manage technology currencies and critical applications. He also steered the deployment of emerging technologies to drive efficiencies and enhance customer experience, such as robotic process automation (RPA), 360-degree customer view, video collaboration, and paperless payment and processes.

When he was VP and Group Manager, Enterprise Architecture at Fifth-Third Bank, he led the Information Technology Architecture Council (ITAC), which was responsible for critical oversight of all new projects, strategic technology alignments, and key decisions at the bank. Earlier on, Abramovich was VP and Lead Architect at JPMorgan Chase, where he was responsible for system architecture and engineering for a retail organization. Additionally, he helped author the strategy and the product launch of the Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) via smartphone, an industry first.
