    Practice Leader, FinTech, Per Ardua Associates
    A pioneer in FinTech in executive search for the last decade, my key focus has been advising leaders on building senior teams. I deliberately and unusually carved out expertise in FinTech across all segments of the industry: regtech, capital markets, data, high frequency trading, payments, insuretech and challenger banking. My approach is a highly advisory one, seeking to help leaders optimise their chances of securing rare, outstanding talent. I have a rare track-record of both building the management team of a multi-billion dollar FinTech (WorldRemit) and making successful hires from outside Financial Services or from lateral sources. I have built up a unique network of 'C'-suite, board and senior contacts. Outside FinTech, golf, gym, cycling and exotic Asian food are my sins.....
