This week on the Business Beyond Borders podcast, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Skander Malcolm, Managing Director and CEO of global foreign exchange company OFX.
OFX was born in a garage at Sydney’s northern beaches, and has grown to a global foreign exchange powerhouse, present on several continents around the world. They have a focus on helping small businesses to manage their overseas transfers and streamline their operations.
Skander joined OFX in 2017 and is leading the company’s continued global expansion, as it navigates the ever-changing world of fintech.
Tune in to my interview with Skander to find out about:
Skander also shared some of the books and resources that he has found inspirational in his career and business journey:
It was great to hear from Skander in his role as the person steering OFX into its next phase of international growth and development. Although he isn’t the Founder of OFX, Skander has the same passion for finance as Matt Gilmore, who created OFX (and was a friend of Skander’s at university), a laser focus on the customer and a highly strategic perspective to boot. I believe that this combination of factors makes him the kind of CEO that companies need as they grow beyond their original incarnation and beyond the original inspiration of the founder, into something much grander.
I also really appreciated Skander’s thoughts on maintaining perspective as a way of dealing with tough times – tune in near the end of the show for those.
