Moula poaches Deloitte veteran for CFO

The online SME lender has announced the appointment of Ashley Miller as its inaugural chief financial officer, effective immediately.

Mr Miller joins Moula from Deloitte, where he spent 12 years and most recently served as a corporate finance partner, reportedly leading the due diligence on a range of acquisitions, divestments and IPO transactions. 

Moula CEO Aris Allegos said Mr Miller’s appointment was pivotal to supporting Moula’s next growth phase of building out financial infrastructure to continue scaling in a responsible manner.

“Ashley has a deep understanding of growth businesses at different stages of their evolution, with a focus on sound fundamentals and the key commercial elements,” Mr Allegos said.

“It’s always been our ambition to build a robust business, striking a balance between strong growth and profitability, and to ensure profitability is maintained throughout the next phase of growth.


“Ashley will oversee all finance functions within Moula and play a lead role on future equity and debt capital raisings,” he said.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Miller stated that he had been closely following Moula’s progress since it was established six years ago, noting the leadership team’s commitment to its B2B lending business and the growth of its loan book. 

“It’s an exciting time to be working with a rapidly expanding business that has built its own tech stack as a compelling value proposition for customers, which backs good businesses in helping them grow and drive business performance,” Mr Miller said.

“I’m looking forward to helping Moula continue to thrive in a considered and strategic manner, both from an equity and debt capital raising perspective, and by leveraging Moula’s significant investment in the application of AI and customer data to credit decisioning, which provides a deep understanding of customers’ businesses, to establish a finance function of the future,” he concluded.
