Fiserv, Inc.'s Leslie Muma to Keynote America's Community Bankers ConferenceBROOKFIELD, Wis.--March 18, 2005--Leslie M. Muma, president and chief executive officer of Fiserv, Inc. (Nasdaq: FISV), will consider financial technology's past, present and future in a keynote address at America's Community Bankers' 2005 National Operations, Security and Technology Conference & Marketplace. Muma will be one of several speakers opening the day-long session Monday, March 21.

The Washington, D.C.-based trade association serving community bankers throughout the U.S. will convene its conference March 20-23, 2005 at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

In "Community Banks, Fiserv and Technology: A Look in the Rearview Mirror and the Road Ahead," Muma will examine changes in the financial services industry in the 20-plus years since Fiserv was founded in 1984. Muma will use the growth of Fiserv to mirror technology growth among financial services providers, illustrating how changes within the company reflect the growing sophistication in financial technology delivery solutions that banks of all sizes now employ. Fiserv's chief executive will then address the common challenges faced by Fiserv and its clients on the "road ahead" and will conclude with his view on how management style and culture help drive corporate growth.

"For us the client comes first," said Muma. "And it's our people, more than our technology, than has driven our growth of the past 20 years."

A positive attitude, a passion for excellent service and a commitment to high ethical and operational standards are among the strategies that have helped Fiserv succeed and may also apply to the client institutions the Brookfield, Wis.-based company serves, according to Muma.

"I'd like participants to take away from my session as clear a view as possible of the financial technology road ahead, along with a better sense of what Fiserv's culture is all about," Muma said.
