About you…

You are a go-getter, a builder. You’re a natural-born leader, a role model for your teams, and you enjoy investing time in developing and coaching others.

You’ve been in the agency world a while. You understand the ins and outs of how the organization runs and are looking to continue to grow your career in a role with accountability for revenue and business leadership responsibility.

You get tech.  Specifically, FinTech.  You’ve got a proven track record in driving and delivering campaigns for FinTech clients at both local and global levels and of all scales and sizes.  You’ll have worked across all dimensions of FinTech, from BasS to Embedded Finance and Payment Solutions, helping those businesses build, shape and protect their reputation for commercial advantage.
