The platforms, services and support structures that sustain the financial services ecosystem are evolving rapidly and playing a more strategic and defining role in the success of key institutions throughout the industry. A variety of factors, among them changing customer expectations, rapidly growing data volumes and the related demands of increasingly sophisticated analytics, the evolving threat landscape, intensifying cost pressures and greater regulatory scrutiny, are driving foundational changes across all sectors.

Spencer Stuart’s close relationship with the software, services and broader technology community enables us to identify leaders who can drive business growth and deliver differentiating solutions to the market. Cloud computing, mobility, data science, product engineering and enhanced controls and security are among the capabilities that are widely discussed; few leaders possess established track records of deploying them successfully or driving the innovation required to be an industry leader. We help organizations in every facet of financial services find the leadership talent that can translate dynamic industry trends into measurable business value, including:

  • Payments/Processing
  • Business Process Outsourcing
  • IT Services
  • Consortia/Exchanges
  • SaaS/IaaS/Cloud
  • Security Solutions
  • Trading Tools
  • Business Intelligence/Analytics

Our team of dedicated consultants maintains close relationships with key business leaders including chairmen, presidents and other C-suite executives in the industry, and we use our knowledge of the talent trends in operations and technology fields to help organizations — large and small, regional and global — develop and acquire the skilled leaders who will drive change across functions.
