James Green is a global business leader and undeniably one of the most respected and highest-profile figures in the highly competitive international financial industry. He is a game-changer in the FinTech (Financial Technology) space, playing a key role in reshaping and redefining, in epic fashion, the way financial services are delivered.
As deVere Group’s European and Latin America Head, James manages assets of more than £1 billion across offices in France, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Germany and Mexico, supported by a professional team of more than 100 consultants and 70 administrative and support staff.
Core to this success are his enviable leadership capabilities, eye for detail, decisiveness, work ethic, hands-on approach, and positive attitude – someone who understands the value of urgency and, how without it, you cannot experience real success. His winning Emerging Talent of the Year at the highly acclaimed International Investment Awards at the age of just 32 bear’s testimony to an approach to business and life that sets him apart from others.
Getting up at 5 am each day and always ‘the first in and last out’ in whichever of the offices he happens to be in James uses his talent, experience and passion to inspire others and generate the momentum that leads to infinite opportunities – and in doing so enables his team to fulfil their maximum potential.
A believer in the theory of ‘early advantage’ James brings his mantra to TEDxLukelyBrook that ‘if you kill time you murder success.’ He truly understands that successful people are the ones who put habits and actions into place NOW.
