Head of Innovation
Wil leads the Innovation Team at Empower Wealth that aims to transform and uplift the existing Empower Wealth’s technology infrastructure, as well as drive new business and product opportunities.
He has a background in Financial Projects having worked with several of the World’s largest global Financial Institutions, along with two of Australia’s largest Banks, internationally in Asia’s major financial centres as well as domestically. His leadership roles in these organisations have lead him to realise the importance of innovations and continuous improvements to not only be on top of the changes in the industry but to also ensure a market leading position.
Furthermore, with a Graduate Diploma in Banking and Finance and a Bachelor of Engineering, Wil is passionate with numbers and has an insatiable curiosity on how things work and can be improved on. This motivates him to search for ways to bring the finance industry to the next level and lead him to Empower Wealth’s unique value proposition.
His first involvement with Empower Wealth was back in 2016 when he engaged the company to build a Property Portfolio Plan. Inspired by Empower Wealth’s mission to change people’s financial lives for the better, Wil made the decision to leave the corporate world, and come to a company where he believes that with his varied previous experience as a Project Manager, Lead Business Analyst and Developer he has the well-rounded skillset to assist a dynamic growing company like Empower Wealth with a truly worthwhile purpose.
In his spare time, if he’s not developing or researching for new innovative systems in the industry, he’s often seen spending time with his wife and two daughters.
