HistoryEdit

Fiserv was founded in 1984. The company quickly grew and was listed on the NASDAQ less than two years after its founding, mainly through a large number of acquisitions, the largest in the early years of the company being Citicorp Information Resources. Fiserv's website was launched in 1995 and subsequently debuted fully electronic bills (branded as E-bills) in 1997. Fiserv reached $1 billion in revenue.[7] Between 2000 and 2017, Fiserv continued to acquire other companies, including CheckFree Corporation, M-Com, CashEdge, and PCLender.[8]

In 2005, Jeffery Yabuki became the CEO. In 2020, Yabuki stepped down as CEO and was replaced by Frank Bisignano.
