Sandstone Technology CEO joins LIXI board

The B2B information platform has revealed two additions to its board of directors, including the fintech’s chief executive.

Not-for-profit and mortgage transaction standards body LIXI Limited (LIXI) has welcomed Michael Phillipou and Phil Quin-Conroy to its board of directors, with the pair commencing their appointments this week.

Both Mr Phillipou and Mr Quin-Conroy started their new roles on Monday (15 November). 

In December 2020, Mr Phillipou was named CEO of Sandstone Technology – a position he still serves in today.  

Prior to his time with the fintech, Mr Phillipou was the state manager NSW/ACT with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, as well as a regional general manager with Westpac. 


Similarly, Mr Quin-Conroy is currently the general manager – debt and cash-flow solutions with AMP Limited (AMP). 

His recent roles include being UK managing director with fintech Iress, and he was previously the CEO of aggregation group PLAN Australia. 

Mr Quin-Conroy also previously served with LIXI as a non-executive director from 2013 to 2016. 

Speaking of his appointment, Mr Phillipou said: “I’m honoured and very excited to be appointed to the LIXI Board as a director. 

“It’s a great privilege to be able to contribute to LIXI’s board and support management to deliver on its mission of the ongoing development, and adoption of its data message transaction standards for participants in the Australian mortgage industry. 

“I am looking forward to working with LIXI’s board and management, and thank chairman, Stephen Moore and CEO Shane Rigby for their support.”

Mr Quin-Conroy said that he was delighted to “take the opportunity to join LIXI as a director once again” and that he recognises “the value of LIXI to the lending industry”. 

“I am pleased to contribute to the important work of leveraging data and automation to drive efficiency, insights and transform the broker and client experience,” he added.

LIXI chair Stephen Moore said: “I am pleased to welcome Michael Phillipou and Phil Quin-Conroy to the LIXI board of directors.

“I’d also like to say thank you and farewell to Andrew Duckworth. His expertise and commitment have been incredibly valuable to LIXI, and the entire board wishes him all the best in the future.”
