The River is Rising:

CEO John Free brings Wall Street Practice to The 1000 Islands Region of Canada

John Free founded big river in 2015 for two reasons:
1) Bring world-class consulting to the financial services industry without the ‘big firm’ overhead.
2) Provide jobs and economic opportunities to his native Ontario.

In 2018, big river has made tremendous strides towards realizing that vision. Working with clients in Europe, Canada, and the US, big river is starting to make waves (pun intended).

Building on his 30 years of FinTech and consulting experience, John has assembled a world-class team. FinTech and Enterprise Computing experts from around the world deliver boutique solutions and strategies – providing true business value to clients in Capital Markets and Enterprises.

This fall, big river celebrated the grand opening of Eastern Ontario’s Largest Solution Design Centre™. In 2019, big river’s team of 60 professionals is projected to increase to 200. It is safe to say, John has done more than teach the bartender at the local pub how to make a true New York martini.

Evolving compliance mandates, digital transformation needs, data lineage, Cloud adoption and mobile strategies are among the prominent areas where big river is delivering value. John’s latest passion is developing Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) software – or as he puts it, “Catching the bad guys.”

Wall Street is 360 miles away, but John has captured its essence in the picturesque region of the 1000 Islands, where it is not unusual to arrive to work by boat.

As you look at your 2019 initiatives, please reach out to John to discuss how big river might be able to help you and your team.
