SmartPay has appointed its Andrew Donaldson as New Zealand chief executive. Donaldson joined SmartPay last year as chief financial officer and, before that, was managing director at conference company BrightStar.
A statement from SmartPay announcing Donaldson's appointment notes: "In addition to his New Zealand market responsibilities, Andrew will assist the company’s Australian-based management team as it expands its Australian market base."
Former CEO Linc Burgess has been appointed general manager sales for New Zealand and Australia and Australian- based Chairman Wayne Johnson will work with managing director Ian Bailey on the firm's planned Australian Securities Exchange listing strategy and potential acquisitions in Australia.
In the statement, Johnson says: “It is fantastic that Andrew has accepted this role and I look forward to working with him. One aspect of the appointment will be to fully review all aspects of the current operations, and to ensure that it is clearly focused on higher margin business where there is a significant point of difference.”
