Adrian Kennedy

Split Payments
Founder & Director
I commenced my career in Melbourne, Australia, as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG in taxation and advisory. From there, I worked for global surf brand Rip Curl as an accountant. I was subsequently promoted to a new role in Rip Curl's global retail team. This experience led to a general management role with Gorman, an iconic Australian designer fashion retailer. During my tenure, Gorman won several highly regarded retail industry awards including the Telstra Business Awards and TNT Ragtrader of the Year. I provided business advisory to Perri Cutten, Blazer and Tommy Hilfiger before investing in Skydive Australia where I was a shareholder, executive director and Group CEO. Skydive Australia grew to be the largest adventure tourism business in the world and, in 2015, it was acquired and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). Post exit, I have advised HoneyFlow who executed one of the world's most successful crowd funding campaigns raising $USD 13.3 million and assisted them with their transition from a crowd funding model to a standardised business model. As a result of our experience with the complex payments flows of the tourism industry, we created Split Payments where I serve as a passionate executive director of the business.
