To honor executives who have the foresight and vision to drive transformation throughout their organizations through the use of Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM), Laserfiche has introduced the Nien-Ling Wacker Visionary Award. Adrian Darmawan, CTO at First Foundation Bank, is the first recipient of this prestigious new award.

With First Foundation since 2010, Darmawan is a highly experienced technology executive who delivers and manages IT solutions while staying compliant with financial industry regulations. An inspiring leader with keen business acumen, Darmawan is the key strategist for designing and building a competitive technology architecture that enabled the bank to expand to a billion dollar business within four years.

Darmawan selected Laserfiche in 2011 to enable secure document sharing across First Foundation’s 13 branch locations in three states. Since then, his team has built more than 80 workflows to automate processes across the enterprise, including wire transfers, deposits and loans, and integrated Laserfiche with core systems like Fiserv’s Precision and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

“Laserfiche is a central part of our organization. It is where our most important documents are stored and where our most crucial processes take place. We look for new and revolutionary ways to implement Laserfiche in our organization every day,” said Darmawan.

“Our founder Nien-Ling was a pioneer and an inventor, and as such, she forged close bonds with other innovators,” said Chris Wacker, Laserfiche CEO. “In Adrian Darmawan, she would see a kindred spirit who recognizes the transformative power of technology and strives to use the best tools at his disposal to drive his organization forward.”

The awards ceremony took place during the Laserfiche Empower 2016 Conference in Long Beach, CA.
