Global fintech Ebury appoints Queensland State Manager

The Australian arm of global foreign exchange (FX) and trade finance fintech Ebury has appointed experienced foreign exchange and account management executive Callum Box (pictured) as its Queensland State Manager.

The appointment comes as Ebury’s customer base in Queensland continues to grow rapidly, with client numbers almost doubling over the past year.

Box has almost 20 years of financial services and sales experience in New Zealand and Australia. He has joined Ebury from a Brisbane-based payments company where he was a senior foreign exchange consultant and prior to this worked for almost eight years as a senior foreign exchange consultant – business development for Western Union Business Solutions.

Box said he was looking forward to offering Ebury’s core products of spot FX, hedging, cash management, trade finance and bespoke FX option strategies to more Queensland exporters and importers and continuing to grow Ebury’s presence in the state.

“Currency markets are much harder to predict than ever, and Australian companies face the challenge of trying to manage the impact of local as well as other global variables. While businesses are presented with many opportunities, they also face the pitfalls of trying to navigate increasingly interconnected financial markets.

“My job is to work closely with finance executives in Queensland and across Australia to navigate these challenges and help with solutions that mitigate risk from currency fluctuations, manage cash flow and protect their bottom line,” he said.

Ebury, which established its Australian operation in 2018, is one of the largest non-banks in the world that focuses on SME and funds trading internationally. It has FX and trade finance capabilities in more than 130 currencies and offices in 21 countries linked by a single best-in-class platform.
