Many executive recruiters work in well-defined and traditional business sectors which have attracted thousands of qualified consultants over the years. But with the advent of technology and its continual expansion, new sectors have emerged that are as much of the organization fabric as any others.
One such area is the payments and digital sector. It encompasses a wide swath of functional niche areas including digital, mobile payments, fin-tech, loyalty, and big data & analytics, among other related disciplines. One recruiter leading this sector is Chris Pantelidis. As global head of EMA Partners’ global payments, digital & transaction services practice in Toronto and New York, he is supporting financial institutions, retailers and technology companies as well as cutting edge innovators and new disruptors who are all contributing to revolutionizing the way we live and work today.
In this interview Chris addresses the challenges in recruiting for this sector and its position as a driving force in technology. Prior to joining EMA, Chris was a partner in the financial services practice at Odgers Berndtson.
