PaymentGenes and The Conexus Group have joined forces, merging their recruitment businesses to establish PaymentGenes Recruitment. This collaboration aims to support fintechs and payments firms in finding, hiring, and retaining top talent at scale, while facilitating sustainable growth worldwide.
The newly formed partnership, led by Neill Butcher, chief commercial officer at The Conexus Group, and Bram Vreugdenhil, co-founder and managing director of PaymentGenes, will provide comprehensive talent acquisition services.
With consultants in 10 offices across seven countries and four continents, PaymentGenes Recruitment leverages shared industry networks and knowledge to empower growth-oriented players within the payment and fintech ecosystems. The partnership also offers global connectivity, domain expertise, and unique market insights, enabling businesses to confidently expand and succeed.
This collaboration comes at a significant moment for the global fintech industry, which is expected to experience substantial revenue growth, projected to reach $1.5trillion by 2030. Fintech and payment ecosystem players worldwide are now actively seeking the right talent to streamline their recruitment processes, upskill their workforce, and drive continuous innovation.
Power of shared resources
Butcher emphasises the power of shared resources, economies of scale, as well as strong networks in fostering innovation and job creation across all enterprise levels.
“Sharing is multiplying, and leveraging our combined resources gives fintech players the means to continue innovating through our economies of scale,” he said. “Our strong networks enable us to stay close to where fintech sector investment comes from, and to facilitate and progress job creation through all enterprise levels. With us, businesses will be able to open more doors and forge strong industry connections with senior figures and decision-makers that will underpin future growth.”
Vreugdenhil also acknowledged the persistent shortage of knowledge and talent within the rapidly evolving fintech sector.
“In the current economic climate, fintechs don’t need to downsize – they need to right-size with the right people and retain them. The most important reason we decided to come together as PaymentGenes is because we both love connecting people, sharing knowledge, and partnering with ambitious companies to support them to grow and win market share.”
