Earlytrade, Australia’s largest B2B liquidity network, has appointed Murray Coleman OAM to its board as the Sydney-based fintech cements its leadership position in Asia Pacific and expands internationally.
Mr Coleman, who holds positions as Head of Development Projects at Macquarie Capital, Commissioner of the Victorian Building Authority, and Non-executive Director at A.G. Coombs, has joined the Earlytrade board as an Independent Non-executive Director.
Mr Coleman’s 30-year career spans Australia, Asia, the US, and Europe where he has managed significant scale businesses, major infrastructure projects, business turnarounds and transformations, growth restructurings, and strategic acquisitions.
Guy Saxelby, CEO and Co-founder at Earlytrade said Mr Coleman brought a high-level business skill set to the board at a key moment of growth.
“Murray has more than three decades at the top level of business management and will advise our leadership team as we take our next steps,” Mr Saxelby said.
Mr Coleman said Earlytrade was well-positioned for growth as the platform creates new value in businesses in the current challenging economic environment.
“The Earlytrade model helps support businesses to successfully navigate cost inflation and supply chain disruption,” Mr Coleman said.
