FINkit People Series: JR Calvo, Head of Strategic Partnerships

1 Nov 2016

In this ongoing quick-fire ‘behind the scenes’ series, we meet FINkit people from across the business, giving you a flavour of who we are and what we do. JR Calvo is Head of Strategic Partnerships at FINkit and splits his time between our London and our San Fransisco offices.

Thanks for joining us today JR! It’s the usual 5 questions so that people can get to know more about who you are and what you do at FINkit …

1. In a nutshell, what’s an average day for the Head of Strategic Partnerships?

Firstly, it’s shaking off the jet lag arriving in London from San Francisco! Afterwards, it’s the excitement of immersing myself straight into the fast paced ever-changing dynamic of our team’s quest to bring an amazing solution to market.

2. Best thing about FINkit?

Its ability to generate significant business value by accelerating digital innovation and solutions into the hands of consumers.

3. What makes you want to come to work every day?

The challenge and excitement of solving a pervasive business problem with a great solution backed by the best team around.

4. Why are we different to anyone else?

Two key things make us different:
1.) our unique experiences over the last decade which have shaped the creation of FINkit, and 2.) the expertise each person brings to the table and the natural ease to work as a team genuinely committed to a common goal.

5. What’s your go-to downtime activity?

When I’m in London , I’m usually immersed into classical guitar lessons and practise. Back home in SF it will be whatever my better half wants to do just so I can maximise the time with her!
