MThree names Jit Vekaria Head of MThree, North America

22 February 2019

Today MThree announces a key strategic hire to help with plans to ramp up growth for the North American arm of the business.

Jit Vekaria, based in MThree’s State Street offices in New York, joins the Executive team and will take responsibility for all aspects of the business in North America. This will include business development, operations, sales and marketing, right across the value chain, in a location that is a critical part of MThree’s strategy and has so much potential.

Jit’s background brings a wealth of experience in financial technology leadership to MThree. This move for Jit follows a range of senior roles at various Financial Services organisations over the last two decades. During his career Jit has directly led a number of transformation projects and built high performing teams several times over, during evolving and challenging periods for the industry.

At MThree, Jit will be a member of the Board and an instrumental contributor to MThree’s ambitious strategy and dual goal: to be a strategic talent partner for some of the best tech and finance organisations and an employer of choice for some of the most talented people around the world.

On joining the company, Jit says:

“The race for talent is getting harder and harder, and companies are looking for new and innovative ways to find, attract, develop and retain talent. I am so lucky to be joining an exciting and growing company like MThree, in a space that is going through fantastic change and tremendous growth. We provide value on two of the most important assets for any company: their people and their technology. Helping organisations excel at both is our mantra. By doing this we enable them to truly differentiate themselves from their competitors and this was a huge motivator for me.
“I’ve been lucky to work at fantastic organisations since I graduated from university, all of which have shaped my career, and I want to use that experience to help the next generation of talent. Over the coming years, I am sure we will see many of our consultants move into management and eventually senior leadership roles. The opportunity to see this and be involved first hand is going to be one of the most fulfilling parts of my career. I am truly excited and grateful for this opportunity.”

Alex Headley, CEO says:

“Jit’s arrival is somewhat of a coup for MThree. Jit has spent 20 years in banking technology, gaining deep expertise within financial services and client practices, as well as the skill of running huge distributed teams. I’m looking forward to working closely with him to take MThree from strength to strength in North America.”
