Juris graduated from law school and got his start in business working in the real estate industry. Juris emerged from the ruins of the 2009 real estate market and needed to find some new targets where he could apply his insights and entrepreneurial energy. Having worked with mortgage providers, Juris was familiar with some of the challenges that companies face in the lending industry as well as the possibilities for growth that were coming with the explosion of IT, software, and web solutions for enterprise. FIS was born at a time of rapid change in business. As online lending started to gain traction, loan providers quickly learned that building high quality software is an expensive and time-intensive endeavor. Juris and his team were there from the beginning, and FIS has grown to be a trusted leader in providing customized toolkits for loan providers all over the world.
