Biography

The 2008 Global Financial Crisis was a turning point for Ross; not only did he watch millions of people lose their jobs due to irresponsible leadership in the big banks, but he was almost one of them (with his wife and son at home). It created a purpose for him -- to find more responsible leaders for small to mid-sized Financial Services and FinTech firms, as well as Social Impact companies. His ambition is to help build a Social Innovation and FinTech ecosystem in Canada, creating more competition for our global financial systems, thereby making services cheaper, more accessible, and ultimately improving sustainability, financial equality, and inclusion around the world.

Ross leads the IQ PARTNERS FinTech, Financial Services & Insurance and Social Impact Innovation, Sustainability & Non-Profit practices, leveraging 11 years of experience as one of Canada’s top 1% of recruiters in production. 

Ross is a genuine listener, relationship builder, and solution provider with a welcoming personality and in-depth information gathering approach… and has one of the most extensive networks in the industry to show for it. This paired with an unparalleled work ethic and proven track record of delivering the right fit the fastest, enables Ross to provide clients with an unequivocal recruitment experience and results.

Ross 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.”
