Matthew Cheers

Split Payments
Executive Director
Matthew’s career is defined by breaking new ground. Even whilst studying for a business degree in Melbourne, Mathew became Australia’s youngest publican through a stake in a local Fitzroy pub that was consequently acquired by Lion Nathan - his first taste of entrepreneurial success. Matthew is also a third-generation Qantas pilot, having flown with the carrier as a First Officer for 2 years. It was this passion for flying that led Matthew to discover a small skydiving operation in Byron Bay that became the largest skydiving company in the world. His leadership and vision as CEO led to stellar growth and a successful exit for all stakeholders. Matthew is a founder and currently executive director of Split Payments, Australia’s first open banking payments platform.
