Xinja Bank, an independent Australian neobank, has appointed John Pountain as chief technology officer.

Pountain, who has worked at New York-based neobank, Moven, and before that was at BT Financial and Macquarie Group, is helping build Xinja Bank, "with technology that will change banking for Australians who never want to walk into a bank branch or join a bank queue," Xinja said.

Xinja Bank chief executive officer and founder Eric Wilson added: "Our customers have told us that, as millennials, they do everything differently to their parents, except banking. Our technology - and more importantly our overall customer experience - is changing that."
