International Fintech & Banking Expert | C-Suite Exec | Entrepreneur & Innovator | Executive Advisor | Adjunct Industry Fellow | Expert in Residence.

Will brings over two decades of expertise in leading businesses through financial regulatory authorisations, mobilisations, and crisis management in senior financial and board-level executive positions across Australia, Europe, and the United Kingdom. He has dedicated his career to building, advising, and managing global financial service institutions and start-ups, successfully venturing into traditional retail and investment banks, neo-banks, electronic money institutions, and brokerages.

Throughout his career, Will has gained a reputation as an effective and equitable business leader, with a results-driven approach that consistently improves business performance through an inclusive approach. Having managed Global Markets balance sheets of up to £234b while working for the 'big 4' clearing banks in the United Kingdom, he progressed quickly through the ranks via multiple promotions.

Will has been sought-out for various roles, including writing the Credit Guarantee Scheme mechanism for the United Kingdom's Quantitative Easing Programme during the GFC for Her Majesty’s Debt Management Office and being appointed to the Senior Management Team of TSB, engaged in the prominent Lloyds Banking Group divestment programme. He has also accepted CEO and CFO positions for several fintech start-ups.

His extensive experience and reputation in the international arena were recognised in 2019 when he was headhunted by the Australian Federal Government and granted permanent residency through the exclusive "Distinguishing Talent Visa Program." in just 2 1/2 weeks. This resulted in Will becoming the first migrant from Europe and the global fintech sector to receive this rare visa.

Since then, Will founded Infinity, a pioneering Australian fintech, under the aegis of his firm DayTek Capital, which he subsequently sold to an investment fund two years later, facilitating the launch of UnionPay into the Australian market. Will has launched several other businesses, including a structured capital firm and is also a host on the APAC Network for the weekly fintech and crypto shows.

In addition to his professional achievements, Will is committed to supporting students at Griffith University, QUT, and UQ. He serves as an Adjunct Industry Expert, Expert in Residence, Executive Advisor, Alumni Ambassador for Entrepreneurship, and mentor. He is also an Advisory Board member of London's Roehampton Business School.
