Nick Holland has spent the last decade and a half focusing on the intersection of mobile, payments, retail and security, working at Mercator Advisory Group, Pyramid Research, Aite Group, Yankee Group and Javelin Strategy and Research.
Nick has spoken and chaired a variety of conferences and events, including Mobile World Congress, Money2020, SXSW and Next Bank and has been quoted in publications and shows including The Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, MSNBC, NPR’s “Marketplace”, Forbes, Fortune, BusinessWeek, Time Magazine, The Economist and the Financial Times.
Nick holds an MSc Degree with Distinction in Information Systems Management from the University of Stirling, Scotland and a B.A. Honors degree in Art and Design History from De Montfort University in England.
Outside of all things mobile payments, Nick is a self confessed music snob, with a penchant for British punk, drum and bass and 80’s techno / electronica. He prefer two wheels to four and currently own three bicycles and a classic Ducati. Nick enjoys travel and speak French and Russian (poorly). He is still learning American. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife, son and a collection of animals.
