Business Profile

I joined Ixaris as a junior developer and one of the company's first employees fourteen years ago. Today, in my role as Ixaris’ COO and Acting CEO, I empower a team of over 80 people to redefine B2B payments. As a pragmatic, resourceful leader, I bring tactical solutions to complex operational challenges. I work collaboratively with employees, customers and strategic partners to drive strategic business transformation and industry-leading innovation that accelerate Ixaris' growth trajectory. I am an independent, strategic thinker who values simplicity and common sense. Combining an intrapreneurial mindset with technical experience and knowledge, I identify the key elements that turn an organisation’s wheels — and employ strategic perspective to steer it through the finish line.
