Peter Clare will join Rubik on 1 July 2016 with over 20 years’ experience in the banking industry, having most recently been CEO of Westpac New Zealand.
Mr Clare is also a member of several fintech-related boards, including as chairman of ChimpChange and REFFIND, and as a director of Scottish Pacific Group, Digicash and Capital Market Technologies.
Rubik chairman Craig Coleman said the company’s ability to recruit someone of Mr Clare’s calibre is testament to its increasing maturity and vision for growth.
“Peter’s skills and experience, combined with his network in the banking and technology sectors, will be of great value in helping to drive Rubik’s future success,” Mr Coleman said.
Mr Clare said he is excited by the opportunity that Rubik presents.
