FinTech Australia appoints Rehan D’Almeida as General Manager
With the Finnies less than a month away, today we’re announcing some exciting news for our organisation.
Rehan D’Almeida, whom many of you will know, has been promoted to General Manager of FinTech Australia. Rehan started at FinTech Australia as a Marketing Intern five years ago, working to his current role as Head of Strategic Partnerships and Marketing.
The board has been particularly impressed with Rehan’s work. He was one of the key figures behind FinTech Australia’s growth over the past few years. Thanks to his work, FinTech Australia has exponentially grown both its member base and its partnership program, which now boasts over 400 members and 45 corporate partners.
As part of this news however, we also have to announce that Andrew Porter has taken the difficult decision to resign as CEO of FinTech Australia.
The board has accepted his resignation and thanked Andrew for his contribution. Porter told us “Working with the member body of FinTech Australia has been an absolute pleasure, but has made me realise that my passion for the space really lies in building fintechs via investment or direct involvement.”
“I am confident that I am leaving the organisation in great hands and wish Rehan all the best in the role of General Manager.”.
FinTech Australia is a unique organisation performing an important role on behalf of our member base. The nature of the industry and the nuance with which we operate and advocate means that promoting people from within our team often brings the best results – results driven by people who are as passionate about and as sensitive to the needs of the fintech industry as our member companies are.
The board and I are confident that Rehan will take FinTech Australia to new heights, and know that he will continue to build strong relationships and apply the careful guidance required during the next phase of the organisation’s growth. Over the coming weeks, Rehan will be growing his team to broaden FinTech Australia’s expertise and capacity to bring increasing support and benefits to our members.
As always, we welcome any input from our members. And we would invite you to join with us in congratulating Rehan for what is an incredible, well-earned career achievement.
Rehan, the rest of the board, myself and the FinTech Australia team, look forward to seeing you at The Finnies on June 23.
