Drury has joined PayPal Australia with the title of director enterprise business after previously working for EasyJet, and for American Express where he held senior positions over 12 years with the company.

“As we face an increasingly competitive environment, we must innovate how we approach our sales, relationship management and strategic growth activities and Anthony is the perfect person to execute our vision.”

Roy said Drury had business development experience across a wide range of international businesses and industries including aviation, travel and tourism, payments, ecommerce and engineering, and was also an experienced non-executive director, having held positions on boards across a range of industries including tourism and technology.

“I am excited to be joining PayPal at a time of unprecedented change and innovation. I look forward to further enhancing the already strong strategies PayPal Australia has in place,” Drury said.

Roy said PayPal globally was experiencing a period of growth and in Q4, 2016, the company facilitated 1.8 billion payments, up 23% on the previous quarter, as well as US$99 billion in total payment volume, up 26%.
