Aaron Silva
President & CEO
Paladin fs, LLC
Mr. Silva is a recognized and respected industry leader and negotiations expert standing for community financial institutions against the powerful oligopoly of Core & IT suppliers. After spending 15 years selling IT services to bankers across the country, Silva recognized that bankers lacked real market intelligence and pricing data necessary to enter these one-on-one negotiations intelligently. This realization served as the catalyst for founding Paladin fs and the Paladin Blue Book in 2007. With more than 100 successful transactions and $135 million in cost reduction since Paladin’s inception - Silva realized the industry still needed a counter-balance to the oligopoly formed by “The Big Three”. In June 2016, Silva launched the Golden Contract Coalition with the unprecedented goal of aggregating large numbers of banks and $1B in combined contract revenue - manufacturing the leverage necessary to put the power back into the hands of community financial institutions and once and for all disrupt the major suppliers’ business models of one-sided, over-priced, and unfair deals.

This WiBinar will help financial institutions identify contractual vulnerabilities and keep vendor risk at arm's length.
