We are Australia's leading Fintech Executive Search Consultants.

Hiring the right people is the biggest challenge any Fintech leader faces. I founded Tier One People specifically to provide hiring expertise to Boards and Founders who want to hire the right people and scale rapidly.

What makes me an expert?

Over a 20 year plus recruitment career I’ve personally conducted hundreds of search mandates for giants like Google, Paypal, Visa, CBA, Mastercard and Macquarie.

I’ve also advised over 150 Fintech founders on hiring for scale. And I now help companies like Revolut, 10x, Klarna, Cover Genius and many others when they want to scale their business.
