At Wipfli, people count

 

Our people are core to everything we do — the catalyst behind our ability to create exceptional impact and extraordinary results.

We believe in flexibility. We focus on relationships. We encourage each individual to follow their own path. And we seek feedback openly, from all.

 

People matter here and they feel it.

 

And we value curiosity.  Curious is more than a personality trait. It’s a way of thinking. Of learning. Of working.

There’s purpose in this wonder. It makes us better. It makes us Wipfli.

 

If you want to be in an environment where you can make a difference — and make a professional home — Wipfli is the place for you.

Responsibilities: 

 

Wipfli Digital was born out of the knowledge that we need to stay one step ahead of our clients’ needs. Wipfli has over 90 years of experience across several industries—with many trusted client partners in each area who have built up relationships and a deep knowledge of their clients’ business. But we know our clients need more. They need someone who can take them into the future with digital solutions, an innovative mindset, and a passion for cutting edge technology.

 

The Financial Services (FS) Industry Strategist is a trusted advisor to Wipfli’s FS clients, prospects, and internal leadership—creating excitement around the ways human-centered UX design, digital product development, and fintech are impacting the FS industry opening a world of possibilities for FS organizations to better engage with their customers and members. They develop and deliver proactive thought leadership, partnering with the firm’s marketing organization to generate insightful content in the form of blogs, articles, whitepapers, and more, and play a pivotal role in the sales process for prospective clients in the FSindustry by identifying and pursuing opportunities in digital.

 

We are looking for someone who can combine their deep subject matter expertise in the FSindustry —including experience working with banks, fintechs, payment providers, and more—with their passion for technology and how digital product development can help grow our clients’ businesses. This role works closely with the Head of Growth for Digital and is instrumental in setting Wipfli Digital apart and establishing a foundation for long-term success and growth. The ideal leader will: 

  • Be the “face of digital” for partners and principals representing Wipfli’s clients in the FS industry.
  • In partnership with the head of growth for digital, develop and execute an internally facing thought leadership strategy to educate industry leaders about the opportunities digital presents for their clients.
  • Maintain a pulse on how shifts in technology and UX design are impacting the FS industry and develop a perspective on how Wipfli can capitalize on those opportunities for its clients and prospects.
  • Publish between 5 and 10 externally facing pieces of content across Wipfli Digital’s marketing channels each month.
  • Assist the head of growth for digital and other Wipfli industry leaders in developing proposals for prospective and existing clients that leverage our digital service offerings. 

Qualification:

  • 5-7 years of experience leading digital initiatives for a company in the financial services space.
  • The ability to distill complex technology topics down into easily understandable language for many stakeholder groups.
  • Experience motivating and influencing others to get excited about the possibilities afforded to them through digital.
  • A nimble spirit with the desire to see the results of your work come to life in our clients’ businesses.
