Founder & CEO of RedBlade

With over 20 years of experience as a businessman and entrepreneur, Kevin has founded and led many successful ventures. His love and abundant energy for creating successful businesses from the ground up is evident in his track record.

Kevin is passionate about using technology to simplify the lives of consumers, even though back-end processes may be complex. Using creativity and innovation, digital channels offer the opportunity to deliver a great product in a way that has not been done before. Kevin thrives on solving the myriad of problems that exist within current financial services.
Kevin introduced wonga.com to South Africa in 2012, after studying the local financial services market and realizing that many existing credit providers claimed to be transparent and customer-focused but still bombard customers with mountains of jargon and hidden costs.

RedBlade Software is Kevin’s latest start-up which began in August 2014. This online digital platform was built from scratch and is proving to be a real disruptor and innovator in the space. RedBlade’s real-time financial platform leapfrogs into the digital and cloud arena enabling financial service providers to rapidly and cost-effectively reach these markets ahead of the competition. The empowering platform innovates on customer experience and process automation, while swiftly adapting to ever-changing legislation.

Kevin’s specialties include start-ups, consumer finance, software as a service, cloud architecture, teams, learning, and mobile. Any of Kevin’s past or present employees will tell you that he encourages a culture of creative abrasion which stimulates vigorous team debates and ultimately forms the foundation for his many successful ventures.
