The Politics of Everything

Aug 16, 2022

I met Kristofer Rogers some 15 years ago, when I was a lobbyist, and he was working for an online fundraising platform. Nearly two decades have rolled by, and how the world of work, play, tech, online sales, and everyday transactions have very much changed!

Kristofer is a highly regarded technology leader who is recognised as a thought leader in emerging payments and technology innovation. He is currently Australia's CEO of EonX Services, part of a publicly listed fintech growth company (CSE:EONX) focused on developing their new account-to-account payments solution.They are the local subsidiary partnering with Mastercard to develop their new account-to-account payments solution.

Prior to joining EonX, Kris was General Manager ANZ at Mambu, the $5 billion-valued core banking platform provider. In November 2019, he was announced as the Start-Up Executive of the Year at the CEO Magazine’s Executive of the Year Awards for his work as CEO of Zepto (formerly Split Payments), which he led from launch to becoming a market leader in direct debit and real-time payments solutions leveraging open banking.

Kristofer is also a Non-Executive Director and board member of Feros Care, a disability and aged care provider helping people ‘grow bold’ with better care and technology. Kris presents on future trends in technology across the globe and is also a strategic advisor on fundraising and social impact for corporates and non-profits.

A keyboard warrior the piano playing kind, he also is father to three kids, and lives with his wife in balmy Byron Bay, one of the most popular sea change destinations in Australia.

Hear Kristofer’s insights on:

  1. How would you describe the modern payment system in 2022 and what has fundamentally changed over the last few decades? Examples please.
  2. Banks are still powerful holders of mortgage loans and seen as mostly stable businesses that customers can rely on for their savings and credit cards etc, but has the rapid rise of a raft of new players upended that?
  3. Is the appeal of disruptor payment systems perhaps generational?
  4. How much ethical and fiscal responsibility do these disrupters have to their customers?
  5. What do you foresee as the next big trends for payments globally?
  6. Take away: What is your final takeaway message for us on The Politics of Payments?
