Managing Director, eftpos

Matt Barr

Matt moved into his current role of eftpos Managing Director in May 2022 after more than two years serving as the Company’s Chief Product Officer.

Apart from being responsible for Australia’s domestic debit card scheme and one of the largest payment switches in the country, during Matt’s time at eftpos, the Company has rapidly evolved to also become a leader in the delivery of digital services, investing in new platforms and products for innovation, including:

a. New eCommerce, mobile and anti-fraud capabilities,

The new eQR platform, and

A new API gateway.


Matt has had domestic and international executive experience across payments, business software, telecommunications, financial services and management consulting businesses. He’s also held leadership positions in businesses navigating significant technology and consumer driven change, as well as executive positions in Australia and North America within Mastercard’s global product organisation.

Joining eftpos has given Matt the opportunity to use his passion for (and knowledge of) payment technology in the context of business transformation - an experience he has found both fascinating and rewarding. He is proud to drive real and consequential change to help all Australians.
