Brisbane startup Biza.io, which help banks and others navigate the introduction of the Consumer Data Right (CDR) has promoted the company’s head of customer success, Jessica Booth, to the newly created role of chief operations officer (COO).

Booth joined Biza in September 2023, having previously worked at cloud enterprise software startup Mastt, as well as holding leadership roles at AlayaCare ANZ and Telstra Health.

Biza.io CEO and founder Stuart Low said Booth is a strong leader with a wealth of knowledge in building and maintaining highly successful customer relationships.

“Jessica has quickly become an invaluable member of the Biza team,” he said.

“With Jessica’s steady hand on the tiller and well-reasoned strategic thinking, Biza is well-placed to continue to simultaneously scale and drive innovation throughout the CDR ecosystem.”

Low launched Biza in 2017, working out of his garage in Sydney, preparing for the introduction of CDR in mid-2020, with Regional Australia Bank as its first customer. Since then he’s relocated the company to the Queensland capital and after bootstrapping for the first five years, raised $7.5 million in a Series A led by OIF Ventures and Jelix Ventures in August 2022.

Its Software-as-a-Service solutions enable authorised organisations to share and ingest customer transaction data with the explicit consent of the data owner.

Low said that in the past quarter, Biza has focused on growing its customer success, security and product teams, with the team size growing 48% to 32. He plans to hire a further five employees across its product and go-to-market teams, including a cloud engineer and two mid-level engineers.
