We live and work in a connected digital society, where international ecommerce is creating the opportunity to grow and scale rapidly, and yet businesses around the world are still being limited by an aging global payments infrastructure. I'm deeply passionate about creating tech based solutions to the global challenges that are holding businesses back. Airwallex is driving change throughout the global payments industry for the better, all to support people and businesses in unlocking their fullest potential.
I am leading my team on a mission to re-imagine the global payments landscape, relentlessly challenging ourselves to provide the best possible outcome for our customers and creating opportunity without exception.
