GreatAmerica Financial Services Appoints Group Presidents

GreatAmerica Financial Services appointed Jennie Fisher and Brian Bjella group presidents to lead its team of more than 750 professionals.

Fisher was promoted from her previous position of senior vice president and general manager for the office equipment group to group president of office equipment. A veteran of the office equipment industry, Fisher won the most recent Best Female Executive from The Cannata Report and has led the office equipment division at GreatAmerica for 16 years, growing the business unit to $2 billion in earning assets.

“Jennie was employee number three at GreatAmerica, joining when we started in 1992. She is a trusted, respected and pivotal member of the Office Equipment community. We’re excited to offer her this new role and are certain our customers will only benefit from her expertise,” Martin Golobic, CEO of GreatAmerica, said.

Following the promotion, Bjella now will serve as group president of specialty markets. Bjella’s company, Grandview Financial, was acquired by GreatAmerica in 2010. Since then, Bjella has helped build the business unit into five divisions: automotive, construction and industrial, healthcare, franchise and direct programs financing. Bjella was previously the senior vice president and general manager of the specialty markets group at GreatAmerica.

“We’re so excited to have Brian take on this new position as we see Specialty Markets Group growing. He’s a talented leader with a keen eye for developing talent and relationships within the various industries we now serve,” Golobic said. “Jennie and Brian will join the GreatAmerica senior leadership team to help shape the company’s strategic direction with a focus on the continued success of our customer and employees.”
