About Jost Stollmann
Jost founded and grew the German system and network integrator, CompuNet Computer AG into a US$1B company. In 1996 he sold it to GE Capital US and led the integration and expansion of GE Capital IT Solutions across Europe. In 1998, as Federal Shadow Minister of Economy and Technology, Jost ran his successful election campaign making a significant contribution to the landslide victory of Gerhard Schröder to the Chancellorship of Germany. Then Jost commissioned an award winning 40m high performance racer-cruiser and sailed around the globe before settling in Sydney in 2004. Now he leads a fast growing banking institution, Tyro Payments, seeking to reinvent banking and disrupt the Australian bank oligopoly and most importantly bringing innovative banking solutions to Australian small-to-medium businesses.
