Fintech names LBS alumnus CEO with plans to disrupt banking
14 Apr 2015
New Sydney fintech hub Stone & Chalk has appointed London Business School alumnus Alex Scandurra as its chief executive, as the location for start-ups seeking to disrupt banking prepares to open in June.
About 330 entrepreneurs from 120 fintech start-ups have registered to work in the space, ensuring Stone & Chalk will open at full capacity of about 150 people.
Scandurra , a former captain in the Australian Army and co-founder of Barclays Bank's accelerator program, said collaboration between these established players and the companies trying to disrupt them - including P2P lenders, crowdfunders, investment advisers and start-ups working across payments, insurance, capital markets and crypto-currencies - is a fundamental principle of Stone & Chalk.
