CURRENCYCLOUD APPOINTS AUSTRALIAN COUNTRY MANAGER
Nick Briscoe, formerly MD of Finalto in Australia, joins as global expansion continues.
Currencycloud, the experts in simplifying business in a multi-currency world, today announces the appointment of Nick Briscoe as Country Manager for Australia as our global expansion continues across the APAC region.
Formerly the Australian MD of Finalto, the market leaders in next-generation multi-channel trading software, systems and liquidity services, Nick has held a variety of senior roles leading sales, operational and technology teams for non-bank prime brokerage Invast Global.
In his role, Nick will initially guide the business through the regulatory process of obtaining a licence in Australia, while also working with the wider APAC team to build out the infrastructure required to service new and existing customers in Australia and the region. Nick will then build the on-the-ground team through the second half of 2022.
As part of Currencycloud’s on-the-ground presence in Australia, the company has joined Fintech Australia to engage in the growing Fintech community in the country.
Speaking on his appointment, Nick commented: “One thing no one can accuse the APAC Fintech landscape of is being boring! The pace of change in new start-ups, maturing Fintechs launching new products and more established financial services firms adapting to their new ‘digital-first’ competitors is truly incredible.
“Currencycloud is ideally positioned to prosper in this environment and is in fact a key enabler of competition in the sector. No other provider allows financial services companies to go to market with a comprehensive cross-border, multi-currency technology solution so quickly and so effectively. I am incredibly excited at the opportunity in front of all of us.”
Mike Laven, CEO of Currencycloud, commented: “2021 saw us open our Singapore office and appoint Rohit Narang as our MD for AsiaPac. As our growth continues at pace Australia forms a significant part of our ambitions across the region. Nick joins an outstanding team and we look forward to building our presence in Australia with him at the helm.”
