” You never know what’s around the corner. “

I joined Revolut in February 2020 as CEO of our Australian business.  The mission was clear. In the words of our founder Nik Storonsky while I was shadowing him in London during my first week: “Conquer your market.” I returned to Australia just before COVID hit, and translated those marching orders into four priorities: to build an A-grade team; set the foundation by getting the right licences in place; draw on Revolut’s extensive product catalogue to build and localise our offering in Australia; and then scale.  Having pivoted out of one of Australia’s incumbent banks, I was loving the latitude to build a business from scratch, draw great people to what we were doing and really put the foot down.

What I didn’t expect was the opportunity to step into a global role, working with our founders and local CEOs in each of Revolut’s seven major markets to help build a global platform serving 16 million personal customers and half a million small businesses.

Someone working remotely in Brisbane was an unlikely candidate, but this is where I found myself in August 2020.
