FinTech Australia, the association representing Australia's fintech industry, has announced the departure of its chief executive officer, Danielle Szetho, effective March 2018.

Szetho, who was appointed as CEO in June 2016, says she will now take some time off to rest and travel before she "delves into the next stage of [her] career."

Szetho was formerly the banking & finance industry head at Fairfax Media.

Commenting on her departure, Szetho said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to have served Australia’s fintech industry as its inaugural industry association CEO. With the support of the board, our team and our incredible community, we have turned FinTech Australia from being little more than an ambitious idea to an industry association that has successfully driven the fintech agenda across the nation, resulting in real, positive change in areas such as Crowdfunding, Digital Currency regulation and Open Data."

"I have enjoyed every minute I’ve spent understanding our members’ challenges and arguing our case to government, and I’m proud of what our tiny team has delivered to promote and connect the fintech community."

FinTech Australia chair Stuart Stoyan, added: “Danielle’s departure is our loss and I wish her all the best in the next stage of her career."

FinTech Australia has now begun the search for a new CEO and has appointed former head of strategy at Timelio, Sarah Worboys, as interim CEO until a permanent replacement is found.
