GoCardless has appointed Carolyn Breeze to the role of general manager, Australia and New Zealand to help the payment company transform bank-to-bank payments.
Ms Breeze has more than 20 years in the technology and fintech sector, having previously been country manager at Braintree Australia and holding roles at eBay, Vodafone and Telstra.
Ms Breeze will work closely with the firm’s major partners Xero and Zuora to transform the way businesses get paid globally.
“GoCardless’s global network democratises recurring payments and allows businesses of all sizes to access what has long been exclusive to large enterprises.
“This will reduce cash flow stress, improve internal processes and remove the need for businesses to depend on credit cards, which has traditionally been the case,” she said.
The APAC region is an area of growth for GoCardless and Ms Breeze will be responsible for leading that expansion.
“At GoCardless, we are determined to help organisations deliver a frictionless digital experience to their customers that rival other global payment methods. An expanded team will enable us to achieve this.” she said.
Chief executive and co-founder of GoCardless Hiroki Takeuchi welcomed the appointment of Ms Breeze and said she would be a great asset to the team.
“It is an exciting hire for us, and we are confident that Carolyn will use her deep insight in the international and local digital payments arena to bring us one step closer to delivering global bank-to-bank payments,” he said.
