We are excited Robbie Cooke has been appointed the new CEO of our portfolio company Tyro. Robbie brings a wealth of experience, having previously been CEO of both Wotif.com and Tatts. He oversaw large transitions in both businesses – an IPO in Wotif’s case and a large merger with Tabcorp while in charge of Tatts. Robbie is in our mind one of the country’s leading CEOs.
“Tyro ticked a lot of boxes [for me]. It’s tech driven with a customer focus and the fact it’s challenging the banking institutions attracted me and it’s an opportunity to lead a very successful team,” he said.It has a significant and strongly growing credit and debit card processing services business in operation. A key focus is to keep that growth profile recurring … and it has two new products, the ability to take deposits and also a loans business for its client base, so I’ll focus on ensuring those businesses grow and achieve their potential.”
