NextGen.Net welcomes exec back to the fold

NextGen.Net has welcomed a former team member back to the fold as national customer account executive.

Greg Phillips previously held a senior position at the group from 2013 to 2017 before departing for other ventures. Most recently, he spent time in executive roles at both Illion and NAB immediately prior to returning to the tech group. 

However, his experience predates even his initial stint at NextGen.Net, with Phillips’ career in the finance industry spanning 20 years and ranging from third-party distribution to business banking and private banking.

According to NextGen.Net chief customer officer, Tony Carn, Phillips’ return is key to the group’s customer engagement team and will play a crucial role in driving relationships with lenders and broker groups.

“Greg has extensive experience in the industry and understands our customers’ needs and aspirations,” Carn said.

“He has a strength in identifying opportunities for efficiencies, prioritising and executing strategic priorities, and helping customers grow their businesses.

“He’s a valuable addition to NextGen.Net and we welcome his return to the team.”

For his part, Phillips is “proud and excited” to be returning to NextGen.Net, as he believes its culture and capability in the market is “second to none”.

"NextGen.Net has gone from strength to strength these past few years and continues to take a consultative approach with our clients to solve industry challenges and make lending easy,” he said.

“It is a very exciting time to be re-joining the business as we take a lead role in the implementation of the consumer data right and open banking regime which will be a key strategic focus."

Phillips also voiced excitement over reconnecting with colleagues across the banking and aggregator spheres to help drive processing efficiencies, address problems and support their strategic roadmaps; he will be managing a portfolio of major banks, non-banks and broker groups.
