Chris Stalley is the CEO of BNP Paribas 3 Step IT. He is responsible for an ambitious plan to open branches across Europe, and build it into a multi-million business.
This was a natural career step for Chris who had been responsible for business development at 3stepIT. There he helped grow international sales, developed a network of partnerships, and conceived the idea of a joint venture with BNP Paribas. Once the principles were established, Chris developed the business plans and strategies for approval by both boards, which led to the joint venture agreement.
Previously Chris worked at Siemens for 13 years, in progressively more senior positions, initially in their captive finance business. He then established the structured finance business for Energy, Healthcare, Industry and Infrastructure for Siemens Financial Services, growing it 15% annually into a €5bn operation. His final role was Executive Director – Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia Pacific when Siemens Bank was established, and integrated the structured finance business.
His earlier career included executive roles at GE Capital-Key Lease, branch management roles at Lloyds Bank, and sales management roles at United Dominions Trust.
