Steve McLaughlin_The Dealmaker_Episode 81

“We were fintech before there was fintech!”  I hear this claim all the time and it usually is BS.  Not so with Steve McLaughlin, the founder of FT Partners.  Steve left a successful career at Goldman Sachs, where he led what today would be called an internal fintech team, and started FT Partners back in 2002.  For the past decade and a half FT Partners, an investment banking firm focused exclusively on the financial technology sector, has been recognized as one of the top firms to partner with.


Bryan Claggett_FinTech Funny Man_Episode 76

Bryan Claggett is the Chief Marketing Officer and the Chief Collaboration Officer (great title) at Geezeo, a successful U.S.  banking PFM solution company.  He is a highly respected SME when it comes to fintech and marketing/communication.

But more importantly,  Bryan is the funniest man I know if fintech (sorry Ron Shevlin, you run a close second).  Bryan’s posts across all social media channels continue to crack me up on a daily basis.  He is the master of the Instagram post and proves you don’t need words to be funny.
