After I graduated college, I landed at a small ISO in Buckhead, Atlanta. We worked primarily on consumer finance, and it’s where I learned the majority of my payments knowledge. I realized what I loved most about my job was connecting people and networking. So, naturally, I got into recruiting. I quickly became client centric, and was instantly drawn to the FinTech industry - it was easy for me, I was one of the only recruiters that could talk to the talk and really know what I was talking about. I still enjoy all aspects of recruiting, along with the relationship and partnership management responsibilities. It all comes full circle when you’ve matched a great candidate with a great company.
It took one conversation with Jordan, CEO, and Lewis, Principal, to realize that PCN is where I needed to be. Their dedication and knowledge of the space interested me to learn and their vision aligned exactly with what I was looking for, expansion always in all ways. We’re looking to become the industry leader in all things related to human capital (continued education, staffing solutions, etc). At the end of the day, we’re solution solvers - that’s what I love about this job.
Wow. Honestly, I would say joining the PCN team & heading up the US Market is going to be my most significant project and yet, my biggest accomplishment. The way we’re looking to expand the US Market is exciting.
I love to play tennis, read, and I’m obsessed with watching anything related to murders (Criminal Minds, Law & Order, Night Of) - I probably shouldn’t admit that. Right now, my weakness is MindHunter on Netflix - even though I’ve already watched them all.
My best advice to someone wanting to get into the industry would be - go on as many coffee meetings/happy hours as you possibly can & stay in touch with people, genuinely. That really goes for any industry - it’s who you know & what you can accomplish with those people.
