Meet the team

tibdit was incorporated in early September 2013 to bring into being a micropayment solution that is strikingly different from those that have come before, and any current contenders. Since then, a diverse and capable team have come together out of an enthusiasm for the concept, and a confidence that we really do have a viable solution to this fifteen year old conundrum.

  • Justin Maxwell

    Director, Founder & CEO

    A well-respected professional solutions architect for over 20 years, designing technical solutions to business problems for a wide array of corporate and other organisations in both New Zealand and the UK, Justin took a career break in 2009 to study towards a degree in maths and physics. Shortly after returning to the UK in 2013, Justin identified a novel answer to the intransigent 'micropayment problem' that has puzzled online content providers for more than a decade. After validating with others that the approach was both original and viable, he was compelled to pursue it, and tibdit was born. Justin also set up an early Internet Service Provider in Auckland, New Zealand in 1995 and lessons from that entrepreneurial experience have been taken on board in relation to tibdit. A priority this time around has been pulling together a great team of great people, all of whom have important skills that are quite different to his own extensive technical expertise. Justin is the CEO and founder of tibdit and expects to continue in a different role once tibdit is growing solidly.
