*INTEGRA Adds To Management Team*
**By Tony Garritano**
***As we continue to track the LOS world, I just heard that Melvin (Jay) Tindall Jr. has partnered with the founding Executive Management team at LOS INTEGRA, which consists of Jerry Pratt, President and Rick Allen, Senior Vice President. Tindall will act as Managing Partner. Here’s the full story:
****Tindall brings to INTEGRA over thirty years of experience in the banking services industry: Formerly he was President/CEO of Gulfpak Corporation (Jackson, Mississippi) which was a provider of deposit and loan origination software to over 700 banks across the U.S; He also served as SVP of Banking for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services (Minneapolis, MN) where he was responsible for revenue of $150m on an annual basis. Tindall managed WK’s Banking, Mortgage and Indirect sales unit consisting of over 150 employees; he also served thirteen years on the Board of Directors for the Bank of Holly Springs which is the oldest state chartered bank in Mississippi; in 2009, Tindall was elected to the Board Of Directors of Sycamore Bank (Senatobia, MS) where today he serves as Chairman and CEO.
****INTEGRA President, Jerry Pratt, stated, “Jay brings to INTEGRA a wealth of knowledge, experience, and integrity in the community bank arena. His expertise, coupled with an already seasoned executive team here at INTEGRA, will serve to broaden our ability to be the premiere service and solutions provider to the banking industry. I look forward to working side by side with Jay in continuing to gain the trust of both our current and future lending customers.”
****Jay Tindall added: “I am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to join the management and ownership team of INTEGRA Software Systems. I have looked high and low at companies that have mirrored my early philosophy of “service first” in the banking industry. Joining Jerry Pratt, Rick Allen and the entire staff at INTEGRA was a natural fit — an easy decision. What INTEGRA has, is what my peers have told me they are looking for.”
