Q: Describe how work gets done at Kony —and why it matters to customers.
A: I think there is a sense of curiosity and openness to listen to new ideas. That curiosity drives a desire to always make the current experience better, to not rest on your laurels, to push boundaries. For customers that translates into an ever-evolving product and service offering that allows them to keep a competitive edge.
Q: With your level of expertise, you could work almost anywhere. What draws you to Kony DBX – and not anywhere else?
A: I strongly believe that creating a more competitive financial market that allows smaller organizations to compete with the big behemoths brings value to society. I love that Kony is focusing on that segment. Having had the opportunity to work with banks who are driven by delivering value to their customers/members is rewarding and fulfilling.
Q: What’s your advice to someone looking for a partner in their digital banking transformation? What core attributes should they seek – and what potholes should they avoid?
A: If I was choosing a digital banking partner I would ask myself the following questions:
Q: Where do you see digital banking taking us in the next five years? What should people be preparing for now that is yet to come?
A: I believe the end of mass designed products is nigh. Since working in banking (over a decade), I have struggled to understand why every customer’s banking app looks the same, rather than being personalized based on the user’s preferences and context. Personalization based on how I manage my money is lacking. Today personalization is showing me a picture on the login screen based on my location. As a consumer I want more; I want my bank to predict my next move based on my previous interactions. I want it to prompt me to explore the features I don’t use, but really should...But, that’s not all, I also expect personal service. I want to be able to choose a banker that has specialized knowledge based on my personal circumstances – where I live, my career, my hobbies. I want my banker to provide me with highly targeted advice, create action plans based on my goals and coach me to financial success. It’s about creating a personalized AND personal experience. Most banks have focused on the former, very few on the latter.
