NCR Announces New Chief Financial Officer


(NYSE:NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions,
today announced that following an extensive global search, Andre
Fernandez has joined the company's Executive Leadership team as Chief
Financial Officer, effective immediately. He succeeds Bob Fishman, who
previously announced his forthcoming retirement.

"NCR is thrilled to have a proven leader like Andre join our team," said
NCR President and CEO Mike Hayford. "He brings strong experience in
working with the investor community, handling due diligence and
integration for M&A and partnering with business units to help drive
operating efficiency and profitability. Andre's unique blend of C-Level
executive experience, including CEO, COO and CFO positions and
background in guiding and advising business units for customer-centric
and profitable growth, will be a significant advantage for NCR as we
move forward."

Andre began his career on Wall Street in investment banking with Brown
Brothers Harriman & Co. and Merrill Lynch International in New York and
London. He also enjoyed a successful 12-year career at the General
Electric Company (NYSE:GE), holding CFO positions across several
business units in multiple countries. He led numerous acquisitions
aligned with business unit strategy at GE, including international
transactions in Latin America and Europe. While serving as CFO and
Controller of GE Latin America, he was Chairman of the Audit Committee
for GE Capital Bank Mexico, leading bank financial oversight,
controllership and regulatory compliance. Earlier in his career, he was
Treasurer and FP&A Manager for a manufacturing and services division of
United Technologies in Brazil.

Most recently, Andre was the President & CEO of CBS Radio, where, in
addition to holding full operational and P&L responsibility, he led the
effort to prepare the company for a potential IPO, including
cross-functional preparation of S-1 documentation, investor roadshows
and debt financing.

Prior to joining CBS Radio, he was with Journal Communications (NYSE: JRN), a publicly-traded, diversified media company, where he served as
the company's Chief Financial Officer and EVP of Finance and Strategy.
At Journal, he led all financial, audit, strategic planning, investor
relations and risk management activities before being promoted to
President and Chief Operating Officer, when he assumed responsibility
for all day-to-day operations and full P&L accountability.

Andre is currently the Vice Chairman of the Board at Froedtert Health, a
$2+ billion regional healthcare system based in Wisconsin, where he is
also the Chair of the Finance Committee. He has also served on the Board
of Directors of Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD), the National
Association of Broadcasters (NAB), and the FCC's Advisory Committee on
Diversity & Digital Empowerment (ACDDE).

Andre is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese and holds a
bachelor's degree in economics from Harvard University.

"I could not be more excited to join such an iconic company as NCR,"
said Fernandez. "I look forward to working with the entire Leadership
Team to advance the company's strategic plan, work closely with our
business units to enhance value for customers and shareholders, and
accelerate the company's growth trajectory."
