Former fintech chief appointed CEO of DirectMoney

Marketplace lender DirectMoney has appointed former Prospa CEO Anthony Nantes to the role of chief executive officer.

Mr Nantes was appointed to the role for his “proven track record in technology and business innovation,” after having held senior leadership roles such as chief operating officer at Prospa, director of sales, marketing and innovation at UXC (now CSC) and chief executive officer at Planpower, an Australian IT company.

His appointment is said to reflect an integral part of the “strategic review of the business the board has undertaken” and has been made in a bid to capitalise “on the company’s technology capability and enhanc[e] DirectMoney’s customer user experience”.

DirectMoney’s former chief executive officer, Peter Beaumont, will continue with the organisation in the role of chief operating officer.

John Nantes, DirectMoney’s executive chairman, commented: “Anthony is an experienced leader with a track record of leading growth both in fintechs such as DirectMoney and the technology sector generally.
