American Banker – Banks give Tech Talent Top Jobs

In recognition of technology’s growing impact on their bottom line, banks are increasingly recruiting technology experts for a range of top jobs, reports American Banker. According to Eric Anderson, leader of Egon Zehnder’s financial technology practice, this marks a new approach to technology staff in banking. “In the old days the technology people were looked at as infrastructure, back-office, keep-the-lights-on type people,” notes Anderson. Now banks are even offering tech experts the opportunity to run their marketing operations. In Andersen’s view such decisions make sense: “There is a massive convergence between the chief marketing officer job and the chief information officer job, in terms of who owns data and who owns digital.”
