Ashley joins Moula from Deloitte where he was a Corporate Finance Partner for approximately 12 years. During that time he led the due diligence on a range of acquisitions, divestments and IPO transactions.
Aris Allegos said Ashley’s appointment was pivotal to supporting Moula’s next growth phase of building out financial infrastructure to continue scaling in a responsible manner.
“Ashley has a deep understanding of growth businesses at different stages of their evolution with a focus on sound fundamentals and the key commercial elements. It’s always been our ambition to build a robust business striking a balance between strong growth and profitability, and to ensure profitability is maintained throughout the next phase of growth,” Aris said.
“Ashley will oversee all finance functions within Moula and play a lead role on future equity and debt capital raisings.”
Ashley said he had followed Moula’s progress closely since the business was established six years ago and was impressed by the leadership team’s commitment to building a leading edge B2B lending business, and the growth and strength of Moula’s loan book.
“It’s an exciting time to be working with a rapidly expanding business that has built its own tech stack as a compelling value proposition for customers, which backs good business’ in helping them grow and drive business performance,” Ashley said.
“I’m looking forward to helping Moula continue to thrive in a considered and strategic manner, both from an equity and a debt capital raising perspective. By leveraging Moula’s significant investment in the application of AI and customer data to credit decisioning, which provides a deep understanding of our customers’ businesses, we can establish a finance function of the future.”
