Former First Data A/NZ MD joins Indue

John Tait will be based at the company's Sydney offices

Payments solutions company Indue Limited has appointed former First Data managing director, John Tait, as director of strategic development and distribution.

Starting in February, Tait will be based at the company’s new Sydney offices in Chatswood.

He joins Indue with 19 years’ experience, including six years with National Australia Bank’s global payments division, in addition to a total of 13 years with First Data.

Indue chief executive, Manuel Garcia, said the appointment marked a further high note in what had already been a highly successful period of business transformation and growth.

“Our business strategy has been necessarily bold – focusing on the delivery of innovative payment solutions both here and overseas," he said.

"We are experts in payment, always looking at opportunities with fresh eyes and asking simple questions that often unlock opportunities for our customers."

He said it was the pragmatic approach to business that was creating unprecedented demand for the company's products and services.

“The success of our strategy has transformed us and created a dynamic and progressive culture giving us the ability to not only retain, but attract top-quality talent to the business," he said.

"The fact that our business transformation story has inspired an industry expert of John’s calibre to join Indue is testament to our success.”

Tait said that Indue’s business transformation and growth trajectory had been key factors in his decision to join the company.

"Over the last ten years it has transformed itself from a conservative payments provider with a narrow offering, to a diversified supplier of innovative payment solutions with appeal to a broad market both here and overseas," he said.

"Increasingly large organisations are turning to innovators like Indue to deliver innovations more efficiently and quicker than they can do themselves,” he said.

“The leadership team is progressive, with a keen eye for business opportunities."
