You know that really anal, detailed oriented (borderline OCD) friend you have that has the patience to read through and analyze every word and nuance of a white paper or article? Meet my good friend James Wester, Research Director, for Worldwide Payment Strategies, IDC. All kidding aside, James is perfect for this type of position. He does have the patience and subject matter knowledge to call BS on the FinTech & Payments industry when we (okay – me) over hype a give technology solution.
And I love him for that.
