Ricardos Khoury, the founder of Novus Technologies sits on over 26 years of knowledge in IT and retail industries. Immediately after his graduation from Notre Dame University, he moved on to work with leading IT companies like DELL, INTEGRO & DEC where he started to build his knowledge in retail banking and retail delivery channels covering many markets in France, Middle East and the Mediterranean basin.
In 1996 he started his association with the international business team of SIEMENS NIXDORF occupying different positions up to leading the business unit responsible for the development of the banking business in the Levant. In 2002, Ricardos joined the Wincor Nixdorf Asia Pacific team in Singapore to develop new markets and manage the banking partner channel. Over the course of 11 years, he managed various regional functions leading to the role of Regional Vice President, Head Banking Industry Asia Pacific, responsible for the consolidated banking business in 19 APAC markets.
In March 2013, Ricardos decided to trade the structured corporate life against entrepreneurship and founded Novus Technologies Pte Ltd in Singapore. A true believer in mobility and its business impact especially in the retail space, Ricardos focused the efforts of the new company in the direction of Customer Experience Management (CEM) Solutions, Store and e-Channels Transformation and Digital Payments, producing several key digital innovations that are endorsed by TOP banking and Fintech brands in APAC.
Ricardos’ business exposure to over 50 countries around the globe equipped him with a deep cultural understanding and acute business sense that is helping to introduce innovation and add value to banks, retailers and Fintechs across the Asia Pacific region.
Novus Technologies is currently driving retail transformation, financial inclusion and digital payment initiatives in eight geographies across Asia Pacific and ME (through six direct legal entities and two partnerships).
