The business lender has appointed the former Pepper Money executive to the newly created CFO role and the executive leadership team.
GetCapital has appointed Cameron Small as its new chief financial officer (CFO), effective today (1 December).
Mr Small was most recently the group CFO and group director at Pepper Money and co-led Pepper’s $675 million takeover deal with KKR in 2017.
Prior to joining Pepper Group, Mr Small was based in London and was a finance director of Credit Suisse First Boston. He has also previously served in senior roles for several other multinational public companies and consultancies.
Commenting on the appointment, GetCapital CEO Jamie Osborn said he was pleased to welcome Mr Small to the newly created CFO role, highlighting his “extensive” experience in managing high-growth financial services businesses.
“In a very uncertain and challenging market, we are pleased to have been able to continue to support our small-business customers with a range of credit and payment solutions during 2020,” Mr Small said.
“Despite the market turmoil in 2020, we have continued our growth trajectory, growing our lending book by over 30 per cent and adding over 2,000 new customers in the 12 months to November.
“Cameron’s appointment coincides with GetCapital’s next phase of growth, and his skills and experience will play an important role in helping GetCapital become the leading provider of credit and payments to the Australian small-business community.”
Mr Small will also join the lender’s executive leadership team.
Alvin Ah-Chok will remain in his role of finance director and will report to Mr Small.
