Mr Murphy’s most recent role was Deputy CEO and Chief Transformation Officer at Services Australia, formerly the Department of Human Services.
Prior to joining the Federal public sector, Mr Murphy served as Executive General Manager at NAB where he oversaw the bank’s payments and transaction banking businesses.
Azupay Chair Matt Lawrance said the company was delighted to secure such a highly credentialed CEO to lead the company into an exciting phase of growth.
“John brings a depth of experience, knowledge and expertise to Azupay that will enable our company to realise its significant potential,” Mr Lawrance said.
