Ixaris, an innovator in global electronic payments, today announces the appointment of Tim Murfet as CIO.
Tim's previous role was the Managing Director for Technology Consulting in the UK. The new CIO will be responsible for both developing new solutions in support of business requirements and driving new business ideas which are enabled by technology.
With over 20 years of experience at Accenture, Tim will bring significant knowledge of how IT works in large and growing organisations and consider how technology can best support Ixaris as the company looks to the next stage in its dynamic growth. Tim also has strong expertise in delivering projects for clients in the payments industry which will complement his role at Ixaris in supporting the company to develop innovative global payment solutions.
Prior to joining Ixaris, Tim's role at Accenture Technology Consulting (UK) saw him running a business unit comprising of approximately 450 consultants with a focus on sales and delivery of IT projects for large clients. He also spent time as the global lead of the Enterprise Architecture practice and European lead of the Architecture and Technology practice. His client work has focused on financial services and includes being the architect of a large European Stock Exchange and restructuring of a large payment card organisation. His background in technical architecture combined with business experience means Tim understands the requirements of both the technical staff and the business.
Commenting on his new role, Tim says, "Taking on the position of CIO at Ixaris allows me to combine my skill sets of IT and payments in a rapidly expanding and innovative Internet company. It's exciting times for the payments industry and the business in general and I look forward to playing a part in its future success."
Alex Mifsud, CEO of Ixaris, said: "We welcome Tim on board at a time when Ixaris is looking to expand its IT capability to manage the expected significant increase in our business volumes. A key focus for Tim will be ensuring we retain our agagility and respond quickly to new business requirements in order to maintain our competitive edge and continue to deliver compelling payment innovations to the market."
