Chief Executive OfficerDavid founded Kikka in 2015 with a vision to change the way Australian businesses access the finance they need to grow, with an innovative, secure and flexible approach to providing access to finance for Australian businesses. He owns every Apple product on the market and a fair few pairs of sneakers he never intends on wearing.
Chief Financial OfficerMatt is a chartered accountant with over 15 years of financial management experience and has served in a number of senior finance roles in the resources, construction and property development industries. With a calculator in hand he is a force to be reckoned with, and on weekends he likes to pretend he’s an F1 driver in the family 4-door sedan.
Head of Strategic Partnerships and Business DevelopmentDavid builds and maintains Kikka’s partnership network, with a wealth of experience in commercial management, project management, and project implementation. When’s he out of the office, he can be found “crushing it” on the bike, or whipping up a batch of "Dave and Granny's" famous marmalade
Head of MarketingBen has over 15 years’ experience in operational management, marketing, strategy, project management, business growth, and many more areas that sound important. His time in the Kikka office is spent drawing numbers and marketing acronyms all over the walls, and in the little spare time he has, you’ll find him smashing out Elton John covers on a grand piano.
Head of TechnologyAndrew has more than 10 years’ experience in cutting code, building trading platforms and turning computers on and off again for multinational companies like IBM and Barclays. On weekends he can be found at the local tennis club working on his slice backhand and (naturally) impersonating Tim Henman.
Head of Customer ExperienceBarb McGirr, or Barbara (as she doesn’t like to be known) has more than 10 years’ experience in customer service, collections, and credit management, with a specific focus on financial services and lending. Barb is our resident Kiwi, and graciously keeps the biscuit tin stocked with goodies from the Land of the Long White Cloud.
Chief Morale OfficerKikka’s Chief Morale Officer, (King) Louis, is more than qualified for his position. Louis has spent all four months of his life in Financial Services, specializing in the fields of stress reduction and morale promotion. He prefers to work mobile and can be found around the office warming his colleague’s laps and tearing apart plush dinosaurs.
