Tait crosses from First Data to Indue

John Tait John Tait

Payment solutions provider Indue says it has signaled its intent to pursue further market growth by bringing on the former Managing Director of First Data, John Tait as Executive Director Strategic Development and Distribution.

Tait will join the Indue team next month and will be based at the company’s new Sydney office in the suburb of Chatswood. He joins Indue with 19 years experience, including six years with the National Australia Bank’s global payments division, and 13 years with First Data.

Indue CEO Manuel Garcia said Tait had been instrumental to First Data’s success in the four years he led its Australian and New Zealand businesses, and his appointment “marked a further high note in what had already been a highly successful period of business transformation and growth”.

“Our business strategy has been necessarily bold – focusing on the delivery of innovative payment solutions both here and overseas. We are experts in payment, always looking at opportunities with fresh eyes and asking simple questions that often unlock opportunities for our customers. It is this pragmatic approach to business that is creating unprecedented demand for our products and services.

“The success of our strategy has transformed us and created a dynamic and progressive culture giving us the ability to not only retain, but attract top-quality talent to the business. The fact that our business transformation story has inspired an industry expert of John’s calibre to join Indue is testament to our success – and very satisfying.”

Tait said that Indue’s business transformation and growth trajectory had been key factors in his decision to embark on a new chapter in an already well-established and successful career in the financial sector.

“Indue is an outstanding success story. Over the last 10 years it has transformed itself from a conservative payments provider with a narrow offering, to a diversified supplier of innovative payment solutions with appeal to a broad market both here and overseas. Increasingly large organisations are turning to innovators like Indue to deliver innovations more efficiently and quicker than they can do themselves.”
