IRC (InternetRetailing Conference)



Peter Lirantzis

Peter Lirantzis

CEO & Co-founder, Splitpay

How do organisations develop the ‘unfair advantage’ that technology can deliver?

This has been Pete Lirantzis’ focus through his career as a leader responsible for business model-reinvention and operational excellence in online companies. His training as a computer scientist led to an ‘obsession’ with making complex subjects simple to understand and accessible to stakeholders. In practice this means that customers can use technology to get more out of products, feeling safe and informed.

As an experienced senior executive across a range of roles from CIO, COO and CEO, Pete’s ability to manage cross-functional teams in global locations has resulted in delivering on aggressive business goals and breakthrough ideas. This included accountability for IT strategy, sales and product development, operations, customer strategy and data insights.

For the last 10 years, Pete has focused on innovative and disruptive technology in the consumer credit space. This breadth of commercial experience, obsession with simplicity and understanding the drivers of customer value, have led to the breakthroughs achieved in his current role at SplitPay.
