The Fintech Staff Team

Tannon McCaleb

Founder, Managing Partner and Executive Recruiter


Tannon understands that growing companies lack the time and resources to execute the hiring process well. He experienced that lack of control while working his way to the C suite of various payments companies, driving him to dedicate the second act of his career to developing talent for companies in the industry. Starting in 1990 with Discover Card with a stop at GE Capital and First Data, Tannon brings more than 20 years’ experience in the payments industry, spending over 10 of those years filling just about every position for some of the most recognizable names in payments. Its Tannon’s core belief that successful recruiting can only be conducted by practitioners that fully understand the industry and the unique challenges facing each role. There’s just no substitute for experience.

Karla Vietinghoff

Technical Recruiter


As a women’s collegiate basketball coach and former collegiate athlete, Karla experienced how much of an impact that individual talent can have when building a successful team. Naturally, this led her to a career in executive search, where she became a subject-matter expert in identifying top-performing Software Engineers, System/Network Administrators, Application Architects, Quality Assurance, DevOps, and SRE professionals. In 2021, Karla brought that experience to Fintech Executive Search Consultants where she now assists Payments & Fintech companies in hiring professionals with expertise in a variety of technologies including Java, .Net, Cisco, PHP, Selenium, Big Data, Kafka, AWS/Azure, and SQL, among others.
