Meet Our Senior Management Team
Hugh EvansBSc Hons (Comp. Sc.)
Chief Executive Officer aka “Hugeman”
Hugh proudly founded and built Moneytech from the ground up. He is passionate about helping businesses grow and succeed. And little wonder. Because Hugh is a true entrepreneur who’s been instrumental in the set-up and sale of three very successful businesses prior to Moneytech. One of those, Agate Technology, he grew from just three staff into the leading niche storage distribution company in both Australia and New Zealand. When it was sold, just 8 years after starting, Agate employed 65 staff with annual revenues exceeding $96 million.
He emigrated from South Africa to Sydney in 1989. But he’s OK now. In his spare time, he’s a cyclist, private pilot and a huge rugby fan (supporting the Wallabies, of course).
Sonja SandralDip App Science
General Manager aka "The General General"
Sonja joined Moneytech in 2004 and has been actively involved in the growth and progression of the company ever since. Prior to joining Moneytech, Sonja had 9 years’ experience at Telstra (Australia’s leading telco) in the National Media team. She is our go-to person whenever a new plan, product or system needs to be implemented and taken to market. Keeping us on our toes, on track and on schedule while still finding time to handle all our marketing AND run a family of 7 humans, 2 dogs and 3 cats. Phew!
She loves sitting down with the whole family to watch sport and, every once in a while, she takes off with the kids to explore remote corners of the world.
Mark CameronBEc (Comm. Law)
Chief Commercial Officer aka "The Mentalist"
Mark was snapped up by Moneytech in 2008, a year after graduating from the University of Sydney. Like Hugh, Mark has a real entrepreneurial flair with a true hunger for helping businesses grow through clever financial products and expertise that’s hard to find elsewhere.
He has been intimately involved in all aspects of Moneytech’s business and was integral in the development of our debtor finance solutions that are now responsible for a significant portion of Moneytech’s business.
Mark's an eternal realist who appreciates a good rain storm. (Romantic at heart, no?) He loves a full-bodied shiraz and is a long-suffering Waratahs fan.
Saxon BartropB. InfoTech
Chief Technology Officer aka "The Architect"
A true I.T. visionary, Saxon is an asker of tough questions who’s not afraid to reside outside the norm. We see him as agent for the creation of radical client value.
Saxon first forged his banking and payments technology pedigree by driving the most critical core platform transformations in Australian financial services. Since beginning his career in 2001, Saxon has led blockchain, banking, payments and technology architecture at such notable places as KPMG, IBM and two of the big bad banks - CBA, NAB. He’s also had entrepreneurial forays into peer-to-peer lending and other startups.
Never taking his foot off the pedal, in his spare time Saxon’s a cyclist, cook, traveler, investor and startup advisor.
