Managing Director, PayPal Australia
Libby Roy is the VP and Managing Director of PayPal Australia. In this position, she is responsible for driving payment innovations to address changing consumer shopping habits, as technology continues to rapidly evolve the retail and payments landscape in Australia. As part of her role, Libby also sits on the Australian board and serves as an executive committee member of the PayPal APAC leadership team.
An experienced, performance-driven business leader, Libby joined PayPal in 2015 following a record of successful leadership of large, complex professional and financial services firms, guided by a high level of regulatory oversight. Her experience has mostly been gained in global companies where she has been accountable for divisional bottom line results, ranging from $10 to $200 million annually, and where she has had responsibility across functional areas including marketing, operations, product development and sales. In this position, Libby will work collaboratively with Australian businesses and industry partners to help respond to the evolving payments landscape and to help accelerate and enable commerce in Australia.
Libby has repeatedly delivered results by driving change in complex businesses across geographies and legal structures, with a particular focus on those that are highly regulated and which have required careful governance of technological infrastructure, including AMP and American Express. She most recently served as Director of AMP Corporate Super, where she was responsible for over $25b in funds and where she developed a flagship new business model to help meet the changing regulatory and consumer environment. Previous to this, Libby was a Principal in leading management consultancy, Booz.Allen, where she advised and led major growth, change and restructuring programmes for global Fortune 500 and other large organisations.
Libby has significant experience at board level as both a chairperson and member of numerous joint venture and subsidiary boards in both the travel and financial planning industry, as well as regular interactions with the AMP Limited, Life and Trustee board.
A graduate of Curtin University of Technology in Australia, Roy was awarded an MBA with distinction from the University of New South Wales in 1995.Download Libby Roy's headshot
