BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Chairman & Director – CH
Tony has gained extensive and diverse experience over the last 25 years in both the retail and banking worlds. His basic training in software development, in both environments, enhanced his entrepreneurial spirit 18 years ago when he started his own financial services technology company for retailers.
During this time, he has successfully gained hands on experience in starting a company, funding the organisation, creating relevant products and solutions, taking these products and solutions to market and growing a start-up organisation into a profitable and sustainable organisation to the point where it was courted and eventually sold.
His banking experience is focused around the issuing and acquiring of cards. This includes card management systems, issuing strategies and acquiring technologies. He has worked with all 4 major Banks in South Africa and both Visa and MasterCard. His retail experience was gained while taking his bank card acquiring solution to market. Here he acquired invaluable knowledge and experience in retail technology, retail strategies and consumer behaviour. While creating the footprint of retailers using his bank card acquiring solution, he added services such as pre-paid airtime, gift vouchers, bill payments and payment of traffic fines to his suite of offerings. This not only added value to his customers but importantly added to his knowledge base a new set of industries, products, services, and circle of relationships.
Tony’s best described as an entrepreneur whose creativity in finding new innovative solutions comes from his passion to service consumers through his intense understanding of, and relationships in, both retail and banking. He is exceptionally well geared to take advantage of, and add value to, the landscape where technology is aiding rapid change in consumer behaviour and needs.
