Former Vow boss Tim Brown has landed a position as head of financial services markets at Australian tech group Lakeba.
Mr Brown was formally the president of the MFAA and chief executive of Vow Financial.
“As we strengthen our position and build on the relevance and impact of our technology applications in the financial industry, we recognise the deep knowledge Tim offers in helping to accelerate Lakeba’s growth in this sector,” Lakeba Group founder and CEO Giuseppe Porcelli said.
“Tim will be a strong asset to help progress our fintech ventures, in particular blockchain against fraud (BAF), Ezidox and Verimoto,” Mr Procelli said.
“I have no doubt his institutional understanding, and the strong reputation he has built in the financial services industry as a result of his former leadership roles, will help to drive promising growth for Lakeba.”
Mr Brown said that when he was first approached for the role, it aligned well with the skills that he could bring to Lakeba.
“Having the opportunity to work with the Lakeba team, and seeing the scale of application development work they’re already achieving, will allow me to open up new and compelling discussions in the financial services sector,” Mr Brown said.
