A Principal at Detalus Consulting, Kelsey Weaver offers extensive expertise in the financial technology and banking industries, with an emphasis on finding synergies and potential collaboration partners for business development and customer acquisition. While she works with all Detalus clients to identify new revenue streams and design go-to market strategies, she also maintains formal advisory roles with specific clients to assist with product development.
Before joining Detalus, Kelsey served as the President of FinXTech, a division of Bank Director, which focused on connecting bank leaders and technology providers through events and an online, members-only directory of fintech providers. She joined Bank Director in 2011, serving as Publisher and member of both the Board of Directors and Management Committee. In this role, Kelsey was in charge of corporate sponsorships and business development, where she began developing deep relationships in the space. She previously worked for a startup in the tech industry, which gave her a love for fintech at an early stage, as well as experience on the “other side” of the proverbial coin.
Kelsey graduated Magna Cum Laude from Belmont University with a bachelor’s degree in Finance. She is the Marketing Committee Lead and a Board Member for Sebastian Strong, a foundation dedicated to raising funds and awareness for curing childhood cancers. She has also held committee positions with United Way for nearly 10 years and has volunteered at several hospice centers, as her “heart passion” is seniors in isolation.
Kelsey’s favorite part of working at Detalus is working with supportive and intelligent team members who don’t take life too seriously. She enjoys the witty banter and shared perspective that is reflected in the Detalus team and culture, and she loves that every day with Detalus is a different adventure. Per Kelsey, “it’s hard to get bored!”
