Rudi received his first computer at the age of 10 and started programming games for enjoyment. After university he was responsible for developing the strategy and systems architecture for a leading wealth management platform, Momentum Wealth, in South Africa. Afterwards he broadened his experience at various banks and financial institutions in South Africa and the USA and was part of the founding team to launch the first online, B2C, Managed Funds trading platform, Equinox, in South Africa in 2001. Rudi launched 2 successful fintechs, both providing B2B SaaS solutions for Wealth Management. Today he is responsible for the technology strategy at Moroku and brings a wealth of experience in implementing large-scale solutions for banks and fintechs.
“I am looking forward to being part of the team and delivering Moroku’s vision,” says Rudi. “Gaming introduced me to technology and being part of the intersection between financial services, some of the world’s biggest challenges and gamification is a natural evolutionary step.”
“This is a really exciting time for Moroku. There are several projects across a range of industries and time zones as customer engagement becomes a strategic priority for governments and industries. We needed someone that had the technology and leadership skills in a fast-growing technology company to get these done. Rudi’s technology skills across the broad array of technologies in front of us coupled with his people, communication and all-round business skills put him way ahead of the field,” said Colin Weir, Chief at Moroku.
