Board Director, Fintech

Lansons has an unrivalled track record in shaping reputations for top names in the financial services sector. We are looking to hire a board level consultant to take a lead on FinTech and work with our existing senior team, advising clients and driving new business in this sector.
"Lansons has weathered COVID better than we expected, growing revenue in our financial year to the end of March 2021. This is largely based on our deep reputation management experience and positioning as an agency that lives ESG, and always has. We’re looking to invest in our senior teams in London and New York as we grow into the coming decade. In key areas we’re looking for entrepreneurial senior consultants who can attract, convert and manage significant accounts. We’d say our culture is unique, but so would many others, but what is unique is our commitment to offer ownership stakes in the business to our future leaders."
- Tony Langham, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Lansons

As the industry has been transformed by new technologies, we have helped it navigate that change. We have worked with the regulator and the sector’s industry bodies and associations. We have advised the leading retail and institutional banks as they’ve evolved their tech propositions and positioning. We’ve launched numerous challengers to market, many of whom we continue to work with and are now household names. We work with consumer brands and backend software providers alike. Our sector expertise spans banking, asset management, wealthtech, robo advice, regtech, insuretech, and cyber security.

We offer fintechs a depth of knowledge, experience and network that no other agency can rival. We marry this, with being at the cutting edge of the now. Lansons is the official partner of global events network Fintech Worldwide, giving our clients unique access and platforms at international Fintech Week, Blockchain Week and Digital Impact Week events. We are global, with an office in New York, and ability to execute on-the-ground in over 90 countries around the world through our PROI and GCP independent agency network partners.
