In 2008, we suffered a Global Financial Crisis and millions of people lost their jobs due to irresponsible leadership in the big banks. Ross was nearly one of those people, with his wife and son at home. This Global Financial Crisis served as a catalyst for him to find more responsible leaders for small to mid-sized Financial Services firms & FinTech startups to build a FinTech ecosystem in Canada, thereby creating more competition for our global financial systems. In turn, services become cheaper, more accessible, and ultimately improve financial equality and inclusion around the world.

Ross is a Partner, Practice Lead, Consultant and Advisor in FinTech, Financial Services, Banking and Insurance with over 10 years experience leading a team of Canada's top Financial Services and Insurance recruiters. Listening, building relationships, and offering solutions with a welcoming personality and in-depth information gathering approach is what you can expect from him. With a wealth of industry knowledge, one of the most extensive networks in the Canadian financial services industry, an unparalleled work ethic, and a proven track record, Ross is the unequivocal choice to partner with on your next Financial Services and Insurance search. He looks forward to connecting with you.

“Ross Campbell is a consummate professional who has now filled 6 out of 6 roles. In all cases, they only presented top-tier candidates… We’ve been thrilled with all of the candidates… IQP has had exceptional success with our regional recruiting. I had tremendous difficulty recruiting for Moncton, North Bay and Orleans (these files were open for months with no luck). Once I turned the files over to Ross, his firm produced exceptional candidates within 1-3 business days.”
– Corporate Recruiter

“Ross and his agency were very helpful in identifying the successful candidate for the Relationship Executive role in Montreal. IQ PARTNERS is based in Toronto and very knowledgeable about our industry and our competitors.”

It is cliché, but being a perfectionist. So, being a perfectionist…and using clichés!
