Juan Carlos Espinosa has 25 years of experience in various industries, such as Banking, Mobile, Telecommunications, Information Technology and Consulting. He has worked in executive and senior management positions, with a broad business perspective in several countries across Latin America such as Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Peru, Colombia and Puerto Rico. He is currently Head of Digital Strategy & Innovation at HSBC Mexico. For SCALE Chronicles, he shares a bit of his experience on how important it is to have global thinking in the role of any FinTech.

“It is necessary to involve people who have complementary experiences and teams that integrate an important range of different forms of thinking to solve problems in a much more comprehensive way,” says Juan Carlos.
