KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 (Bernama) -- Leading global fintech platform Airwallex has appointed Kai Wu as the company’s chief revenue officer  and Asia-Pacific general manager (APAC GM).

Airwallex co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) Jack Zhang said the company’s investment to build up a senior leadership team demonstrates its continued confidence and commitment to grow the business in APAC and globally. 

“Having Kai take on these new roles comes at a critical juncture as we take major steps to enable the world's most powerful global financial infrastructure and operating system for modern businesses,” Zhang said in a statement.

Having held a number of senior positions at Airwallex for close to five years, including as chief financial officer and Greater China CEO, Kai will lead the new functions from Singapore, marking the company’s first C-suite executive in the country. 

“These appointments come as Airwallex aims to rapidly accelerate its growth globally and in APAC in 2023,” it said in a statement.

In the newly created chief revenue officer role, Kai is responsible for the company’s global revenue strategy as well as closer alignment of all revenue-related functions globally, from marketing, sales, customer success to revenue operations.

As Airwallex continues to grow and expand, he will play a pivotal role to increase revenue growth in a scalable and sustainable manner.

In addition to his responsibility to drive global revenue strategy, Kai’s role as APAC GM reflects expanded responsibilities for oversight of Airwallex’s business operations across the Asia-Pacific region. 

Kai will spearhead the company’s growth plans in the region and drive greater efficiency across the markets where Airwallex operates.

Founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2015, Airwallex has quickly grown to have a presence across 19 global locations across Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America.
