Shift, a provider of credit and payments platforms that help Australian businesses trade, pay, and access funds, has appointed Ross Horsburgh (pictured above) as treasurer.

In the newly created role, Horsburgh has the remit of driving the Shift treasury function, including monitoring asset performance against facility parameters and covenants, managing warehouse and investor relationships, and capital planning to support the technology company’s continued financial solutions growth as the business scales. He reports to Cameron Small, Shift chief financial officer.

Prior to the appointment, Horsburgh was head of debt and capital management at Afterpay, where he led the establishment of new warehouses in the UK and US while also guiding new funding limits. He also held senior roles with SocietyOne and FlexiGroup.

Horsburgh “has worked in high-growth organisations during times of immense change, so he joins Shift with a strong understanding of our operating environment, funding considerations, and the needs of the businesses we serve,” said Jamie Osborn, CEO of Shift. “With Ross leading our treasury function and working with Cameron Small and the leadership team, we now have set in place a fantastic team to guide us through 2023 and beyond.”

Shift is redefining credit and payments for Australian businesses and there is no better time to be joining a team that is bringing finance on demand to an underserved segment of the market,” Horsburgh said. “I’ve followed the growth of Shift for some time now and admired the thoughtful yet dynamic approach the team takes to its expansion. I look forward to helping the company continue along the same trajectory.”
