Robert Bell (12000)
A firm believer in the power of education, Robert has been busy learning how to make a difference in people’s lives.
He’s studied at Otago, AUT and Stanford since leaving Christ's College in 2000. After applying his skills in business, technology and entrepreneurship he founded KlickEx, a peer-to-peer retail and institutional payments platform that provides low cost foreign exchange clearing services for the Pacific Islands.
Robert chose finance and banking because he feels it’s where he can make the most difference, and because to him, “the most valuable resource in the world is people”.
“Challenge yourself. Be vibrant, be strong in who you are, it’s your time, pick up the future and run with it.”
