Former Xero boss joins non-bank lender

Alternative small business lender Moula has appointed former managing director of Xero to its board.

Former managing director of Xero Chris Ridd has been appointed to the board of the data-driven lending platform as the company positions itself for significant growth.

Having worked at Xero Australia for five years, Mr Ridd brings to the role his extensive understanding of small business lending.

“I saw a marked shift in the way SMEs use online data to streamline business process and drive growth,” Mr Ridd said.

“There is an opportunity to help support the continued success of small businesses. Lending based on the strength of accounting data is a unique point of differentiation in the market, and one that is the way of the future for finance-as-a-service,” he said.
